Please take the EBED survey relating to the benefits of playing bridge

Update: The survey is now closed

As members will hopefully have read in the April issue of English Bridge, and in May's EBED newsletter, English Bridge Education and Development is undertaking research with Stirling University in to the health and wellbeing benefits of playing bridge. A survey has been produced to gather data to help in this study.

There is a commonly held view that those playing bridge tend to remain alert into their 80s and 90s, but is it true that the game can help maintain brain fitness? This online survey explores the effect of bridge, in tandem with social participation more widely, on wellbeing and quality of life.

They seek responses from everyone:

  • bridge players and non-bridge players
  • all ages

The response from bridge players has been excellent, but more replies are needed from 'non-players'. Please take part and encourage as many friends and family as possible to take part too.

It should take 10-15 mins to complete. On completion of the survey you can contact the research assistant to enter a draw to win one of two £100 Amazon vouchers.
