Help us improve the EBU website

As part of the preparation for a re-design of our website, a usability study is in progress for which we need a range of volunteers - about 12-20 from a wide range of bridge backgrounds, beginners and novices to experts. No technical knowledge is needed - we just want to see how ordinary users interact with our website. If you would be happy to take part in this, please contact gordon@ebu.co.uk with "EBU website usability" in the subject line.

Relaxed 9-high EBU games on Bridgebase Online

You probably know that we have been running five EBU games on Bridgebase Online (BBO) every day for the last two months and they have been going extremely well, fulfilling a clear need for many of our members in this time of social distancing.

However, we have received feedback that these games are rather strong and can be a bit intimidating for many of our members, so we are going to start a new “9-high relaxed tournament” at 11am every day starting this Monday, May 25th.

Bridge Warehouse Now Open

If you need bridge supplies so that you can play with those you live with, or books to keep you occupied, you will need to order them online. We will not be able to take phone orders just yet. All orders will be dispatched at the end of every month. You can find our full range of our products on our website.

  • 181 UK Clubs Hosted on Bridge Club Live

    Bridge Club Live provides the facility for F2F clubs to have their members associated with their club when playing bridge online. This allows all Bridge Club Live members who belong to a particular F2F club to find each other within the main club and to play with their regular partners as if they were at the club. In addition, their results are grouped specifically for all their club members and they get EBU Master Points when they play in approved tournaments. Bridge Club Live does not charge any fee for any tournament at any time and Online Master points are uploaded monthly to the EBU free of charge as the annual subscription of £72 is fully inclusive. For further information email: f2fclubs@bridgeclublive.com.

    At the time of writing, 181 Clubs are set up with this facility and are listed on the Club Page of the Bridge Club Live website
