Welcome to the home page for Clubs! This page includes news, and links to information, which is relevant to EBU affiliated clubs. We also produced a quarterly online newsletter for clubs - Club Management Focus - and past issues are collated here.

Useful information for club administration is available via the menu on the right, and in the Club Management Handbook. If further assistance is needed, please contact the EBU office, and we would be glad to help -, 01296 317200. The services of the Club Liaison Officer, Jonathan Lillycrop, are available for those needing more specialist guidance.

We would be delighted to welcome new affiliations - more information is available lower down the page.

Free places on Club Teacher Training Courses

Affiliated clubs are able to have a representative attend EBED's Club Teacher Training courses for free once every two years. These courses are intended to enable members with a motivation to help bring more players in to the game - and specifically in to their club - to run lessons. See here for more information.

Bridge Fraud URGENT

In a further follow up to the article last week about fraudulent emails, we ask all clubs to remain vigilant with regards to “phishing” emails.

There have been a number of clubs that have reported being targeted, with at least one resulting in a financial loss.

We're pleased to announce the top clubs by number of player sessions in the year (2018/19). The top 5 are below - click 'read more' for the top 50.

1 Richmond Bridge Club =
2 Wimbledon Bridge Club =
3 Stamford Bridge Club 1
4 West Midlands Bridge Club Limited 1
5 Cheltenham Bridge Club 2

In previous years we have included Bridge Club Live in this list as our one online bridge club, but since the basis of measuring their UMS is rather different from other clubs we have decided not to include them this year. Similarly we are not including our Funbridge games, although it is interesting to note as a reflection of the evolution of the game, that had we done so they would have come in at number 8.
