Thank you to all Sim Pairs participants

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's EBED Simultaneous Pairs. We hope you enjoyed playing.

Across the two events - the Spring Pairs and the Autumn Pairs - 155 different clubs and over 4000 pairs took part. This has raised over £18,000 for the charity which has provided important funds to support our work in developing the game, and taking it to a wider audience.

We are very grateful to everyone who participated, and particularly to those at the participating clubs who made their heat possible by dealing the boards, acting as TD, doing the scoring, and undertaking the other unseen jobs that many take for granted.

The dates for next year's EBED Sims are:
Spring Simultaneous Pairs - Monday 13th to Thursday 16th May
Autumn Simultaneous Pairs - Monday 2nd to Friday 6th September

We hope you will be keen to take part in 2019, to help support our ongoing work. Clubs are able to register for these competitions now through the EBU website using their account on My EBU.

We need your help with our research project

EBED is undertaking research in to the cognitive benefits of playing bridge, and needs volunteers.

Your may recall an earlier request for volunteers, but we continue to need bridge players who are willing to participate in the study.

We are specifically looking for right-handed women, aged between 60 and 80, who have been playing bridge for at least 10 years.

Please see here for more details, and for information on how to find more about what your participation will involve. Your contribution will be greatly appreciated.
