Welcome to the home page for Clubs!

This is where you will find all news which is relevant to EBU affiliated clubs.

Since April 2010, the EBU has been funded through Universal Membership which means that anyone playing in an EBU-affiliated club (provided they are a member of that club) automatically becomes a member of the EBU and pays a small subscription amount each time they play.

If your club is not yet affiliated read about the Benefits of Affiliation. To affiliate complete the Application Form (valid from 01-04-15 to 31-03-16). Affiliated clubs may choose to use the 'affiliated clubs logo'.

For a full directory of EBU affiliated clubs please visit the Club Directory.

Our Club Liaison Officer, Andrew Urbanski, is always available to give advice and assistance to clubs. You can contact him by emailing

Andrew’s role is to support all the EBU affiliated clubs in England (over 600 of them!) and he has visited over 50 clubs since his appointment in May 2012. If you would like to arrange a visit from Andrew to discuss the services which the EBU provides for clubs then please let him know.

Stretford BC affiliate

Welcome to Stretford Bridge Club which has affiliated with the EBU.

They play on five days of the week, with classes for improvers, and a host system for their afternoon sessions. Visitors are always welcome. See their website for full details of their sessions.

As the name suggests they play in Stretford, in south west Manchester.

EBUScore now available

We are pleased to announce that EBUScore is now available.

EBUScore is the new name for the software developed by Jeff Smith, and which has previously carried the names PairsScorer and TeamsScorer. It is available free of charge to affiliated clubs. Information is available here, and this help site carries information on switching to, and using, EBUScore.

Whilst we hope that EBUScore will become the standard for our affiliated clubs, there is no necessity to switch to it unless your club wishes to do so.
