Welcome to EBED

The national charity for the promotion and development of bridge

Become a bridge teacher and help the game grow

We are running two courses in the coming months which will get you started in teaching bridge and help membership of your club to thrive. Our two day Club Teacher Training Course provides training for club members who can then go on to provide a teaching programme at their club.

  • Halifax Bridge Club - 25th/26th November
  • EBU Headquarters in Aylesbury - 31st January/1st February

Both courses are open to everyone - to book a place on one of these courses, please contact Lisa Miller on 01296 317217.

EBED Minibridge Sim Pairs underway

The EBED Minibridge Simultaneous Pairs is currently taking place, and is open to all bridge groups.

One club which has hosted a heat is Ruffian's Bridge Club, the Youth Bridge Club in Tunbridge Wells. The club, which is open during school term times on most Sundays from 10:30 to 12 noon, attracts pairs from most of local school’s bridge clubs. In their heat, players from five schools took part, with Krishna Dhanani and Hannah Milton finishing top in the heat. They also had some youngsters play bridge using the same hands, with the 'colourful' sibling combinations of Sam and Jack Brown and Amelia and Antoinina Mauve tying for top place.

The national results from the Minibridge Sim Pairs are available via the EBU website (as the time of writing the Ruffian's results are yet to be processed).

For more information on participating in this, or a similar event starting in February, please contact richard@ebedcio.org.uk.

Fast Track Bridge has arrived

The new addition to the national learning programme, Bridge for All, allows students to play in just 24 hours of learning.

Ideal for students who want to get to the table quickly, and for teachers who want to deliver courses in a condensed period.

Young players love Middlesex Minibridge event

Over 50 children aged 6-16 attended a series of Minibridge camps this summer organised by Middlesex County Bridge Association and held at Pinner Bridge Club.

Leading the team of volunteers was MCBA Vice Chairman Harish Patel, with teaching under the tutelage of MCBA President Paul Wilson and MCBA Committee member Harold Schogger, EBTA Professional teachers, with over 60 years teaching experience.

Several of the children achieved the necessary standard to receive EBED Minibridge Junior Award Scheme certificates. All the children said they enjoyed the camp and couldn’t wait for the next one!

The mayor of Harrow, Councillor Margaret Davine, kindly visited on Monday 14th August and commented, “I was very impressed by the enthusiasm and standard reached by the children who attended the Minibridge Summer Camp and hope they will continue to enjoy playing throughout their lives.”
