Club Management Focus: Autumn 2019

Welcome to the Autumn Edition of Club Management Focus

The EBU AGM took place last week and a number of decision were taken which will impact clubs, please see here for further details.

The Year End Congress in London will include a Jack High Swiss Pairs on Saturday 28 December. This is a great opportunity for club players to try out an EBU tournament for the first time. Please encourage players from your club to come along, further details can be found here.

The Club Management Handbook previously required a club login for access but that is no longer the case and it can now be easily found at The document contains a great deal of useful information for clubs so it is definitely worth a look.

You may have noticed that some parts of the EBU website were recently updated, more details can be found here. I will also take this opportunity to remind you that if clubs need to update their list of club sessions they can do this by logging on to My EBU and going to Account -> Club Sessions.

I am currently planning my club visits for the start of next year so if your club would like a visit please get in touch so I can include your club in my schedule. If you have any queries related to clubs or to EBUScore please do not hesitate to get in touch. My direct line is 01296 317206 and my email is

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
