New Laws of Duplicate Bridge - 2017

This page is where you can find information on the new Laws of Duplicate Bridge, which have been introduced by the World Bridge Federation in 2017, as it becomes available. The following video provides an introduction to the implementation of the laws, and how it will affect the more commonly encountered scenarios - those covered in our 'How Can I Help You?' series of videos.

Everyone is required to introduce the new law by the end of September, but we are intending to use them in EBU events from the start of August to coincide with the annual updates to the Blue Book and White Book.

There will shortly be a printed version of the laws available for purchase from the Bridge Warehouse. Alternatively you can download the pdf version of the book here:

Or they can also be downloaded in various formats from the World Bridge Federation website:

More information will be displayed here, including about TD training, as it becomes available.

If you have any specific queries please contact the EBU's Chief Tournament Director, Gordon Rainsford.
