Club Focus: Spring 2011

Club Management Handbook

by Krys K

With over 600 EBU affiliated clubs around the country there is a vast storehouse of knowledge on how to run a successful bridge club. The EBU has therefore been tapping into this reservoir in order to bring together in one place ideas on best practice for managing a bridge club. It is expected that the resultant Club Management Handbook (CMH) will be available to affiliated clubs later this year.

The areas covered will include everything from How to publicise your Bridge Club and How to deal with Slow Play to Club Etiquette and How to organise a Club Weekend Away — and much more.

In keeping with the EBU's policy of reducing costs and paper waste, the CMH will be made available to affiliated clubs in an electronic format only.

If you have any suggestions for subjects you would like covered that we might not already have thought of, please email Krys on
