A Hampshire club has received funding from its local Borough Council so that members could attend one of our Tournament Director training courses.
Three members of Chilworth Bridge Club attended the course thanks to a grant from Test Valley Borough Council. The club hopes that the training will enable directors to run sessions throughout the year, thereby encouraging the valuable social and intellectual interaction the bridge can provide to residents in the area, particularly older players. The council obviously recognised and agreed with this likely benefit. We are pleased that local governing bodies are increasingly seeing the benefit of supporting bridge activities in their area - hopefully this council will be one of many.
