LAUNCH OF ENGLISH BRIDGE SCHOOL

Exciting news! As promised a few weeks ago, EBED has launched the English Bridge School (“EBS”) today.

EBS is a new and fresh way of teaching bridge to students online. The aim is to develop EBS into a one- stop learning portal where everything a bridge teacher or student could possibly want is readily available and just a click away. It has been designed so that, even if you have never taught bridge online before, you should find everything straight forward.

Are you new to bridge and want to enjoy a friendly game with like-minded players?

EBED are pleased to offer students and novice players relaxed duplicate sessions within a supported environment. The games will consist of 12 boards played at a relaxed pace with experienced teachers on hand to help. At the end of the session you will be invited to share your experiences with your fellow players via Zoom.

If you would like more information or details of how to register, you will find this here.

Update from EBED for EBTA Teachers and on Club Teacher Training courses

EBED has published help and guidance for bridge teachers to assist in moving their teaching on-line. Members of the English Bridge Teachers Association (EBTA) can access the information via the Teacher Zone accessible through your MyEBU page. It contains advice on setting up on-line teaching tables and help on web conferencing including a review of the various platforms available. EBTA members can also contact Jacks Morcombe at jacqueline@ebedcio.org.uk or Lorna Watson at lorna@ebedcio.org.uk for further assistance in this area if required.

Although we have had to postpone a number of our Club Teacher Training courses whilst the current Covid-19 restrictions remain in place, we are trialing the delivery of an on-line version of the course later this month to allow our training programme to continue. If the trial proves successful, we will aim to offer additional dates when we can.

The national charity for the promotion and development of bridge

English Bridge Education & Development (EBED) is a newly formed charity registered with the Charity Commission.

For those looking for advice in regards to Coronavirus, please use the following link https://www.ebu.co.uk/node/3696

For specific information on the EBED training course programme, please use the Directing and Teach Bridge links above.

The charity has two public benefit objectives: the furtherance of duplicate bridge as an activity which enriches the life of all, and, secondly, a specific aim to foster duplicate bridge among those in full-time education.

We believe that bridge brings with it important benefits in terms of fostering social interaction, as well as supporting the use of mathematical reasoning and the application of logic.
