May 2020

Are you new to bridge and want to enjoy a friendly game with like-minded players?

EBED are pleased to offer students and novice players relaxed duplicate sessions within a supported environment. The games will consist of 12 boards played at a relaxed pace with experienced teachers on hand to help. At the end of the session you will be invited to share your experiences with your fellow players via Zoom.

Every Wednesday at 2pm Hosted by the English Bridge School on BBO (Bridgebase-online).
The entry fee is just $3.50 per game and it is ideal for players still learning, or those who have completed Beginning Bridge Book One.

For each game:

UoS Bridging the Gap 2020 Survey - sponsored by EBED to support research being carried out by Stirling University

I hope you are well and finding ways to continue your bridge activity.

I am writing to ask for your assistance and experience in relation to some bridge research. You may be aware that English Bridge Education & Development (EBED) are supporting a PhD at Stirling University in the Sociology of Bridge, which is being undertaken by Kevin Judge. As part of Kevin's research, he has developed an online questionnaire to collect information from bridge players and teachers. The information collected will pave the way for future research and will indicate how best to ensure the continuation and benefits of this wonderful game we all enjoy.

EBED would like to ask you to read the attached communication from Kevin and then please complete the questionnaire which will only take a few minutes of your time. This will be much appreciated and I would like to thank you in advance on behalf of EBED and the Sociology of Bridge team at Stirling for your commitment to the game and assistance in this research.
