Club Management Focus: Spring 2013

EBU Blue Point Bridge Holidays for Club Players

by Gordon Rainsford

Starting in 2014 the EBU will be offering a selection of mid-week holidays in various parts of England, organised by Bridge Overseas. Blue Point master point awards will be available in all sessions.

These new holidays are aimed at social players, and we suggest that they are most suited to players who are ranked below Regional Master, and whose NGS grading is no higher than a Jack. If you are unsure whether you fall in to this category, please call the EBU Competitions department on 01296 317203 or 01296 317219.

Each hotel has been selected to meet a high specification, and each has excellent facilities, including spas, swimming pools and saunas in all hotels - plus golf, tennis and fishing in some. All venues also offer free parking. Since the holiday and social element of these events is important the aim is to leave an afternoon or two free for venturing out and about in the local area and to enjoy the hotel’s facilities.

Further details will be available on the EBU website and in English Bridge, and bookings will be made directly to Bridge Overseas via the Accommodation Booking Service.
