Surrey Schools Cup a great success

The annual Surrey Schools Cup took place on Friday with great success. The entry was up 60% on last year, and the venue was buzzing with enthusiastic young bridge players. It was organised by Surrey CBA, and EBED was pleased to help with running the event and supporting their work.

The winners of the Cup were Westminster School; the Salver was won by Hampton School; the minibridge competition was won by Weydon School.

Playing bridge could contribute to a long life

A TED talk has outlined that the social interaction which comes from activities such as playing bridge (with bridge specifically referenced) could be a key to a long and happy life. A study found that frequent face-to-face social interaction was a greater indicator of long life than other factors such as your weight or whether you drink. Watch the talk to find out more.

Bridge has also been identified in this article as a great activity for older people to combat loneliness.
