Club Management Focus: Summer 2016

English Bridge Education & Development survey

As you are hopefully aware English Bridge Education and Development is working with researchers at Stirling University to look at the health and wellbeing benefits of playing bridge. A survey has been produced to gather data to help in this study.

Thank you to all clubs which have circulated this survey to its members – there has been a good response – however we need more responses from people who don’t play bridge.

Please would you ask all your members to try to get a response to the survey from someone who does not play bridge.

The results may have significant implications for bridge, and bridge players, so we hope your members will be willing to help.

The survey can be taken at:

A flier which you can circulate, or print off to have at your club, can be downloaded from here.

It should take only around 10 minutes to complete. On completion of the survey any respondents can contact the organisers to enter a draw to win one of two £100 Amazon vouchers. The survey will close on Monday 5th September.

Please note that the survey incorporates questions from other pieces of research, so in some instances the wording of the questions may not be perfect in terms of grammar or syntax. It was, however, necessary to retain the original structure of the questions to allow for comparison of the new results with those from the previous research, but the meaning of the question is hopefully unambiguous, and it should be straight forward to complete the survey.
