EBED Minibridge Sim Pairs underway

The EBED Minibridge Simultaneous Pairs is currently taking place, and is open to all bridge groups.

One club which has hosted a heat is Ruffian's Bridge Club, the Youth Bridge Club in Tunbridge Wells. The club, which is open during school term times on most Sundays from 10:30 to 12 noon, attracts pairs from most of local school’s bridge clubs. In their heat, players from five schools took part, with Krishna Dhanani and Hannah Milton finishing top in the heat. They also had some youngsters play bridge using the same hands, with the 'colourful' sibling combinations of Sam and Jack Brown and Amelia and Antoinina Mauve tying for top place.

The national results from the Minibridge Sim Pairs are available via the EBU website (as the time of writing the Ruffian's results are yet to be processed).

For more information on participating in this, or a similar event starting in February, please contact richard@ebedcio.org.uk.

Fast Track Bridge has arrived

The new addition to the national learning programme, Bridge for All, allows students to play in just 24 hours of learning.

Ideal for students who want to get to the table quickly, and for teachers who want to deliver courses in a condensed period.
