SCBA and its Members
SCBA is a county association member of the English Bridge Union (EBU),
the national bridge organisation for England.
aim of the SCBA is to promote duplicate bridge in the County of
Somerset, and in the areas of North Somerset and North East Somerset,
and to encourage participation in inter-county competitions as well as
running inter-club and other competitions for its members.
SCBA organises and runs a wide range of competitions for both clubs and
its own members. Full details of our competitions during the 2013 /2014
season can be found in the County Handbook and on this web site.
appreciate some of our members will have no interest in playing
duplicate bridge outside of their own club. Some may like to compete but
only against players of a similar standard. Over the last few years we
have introduced competitions, which allow you to do just that, Last
season I was particularly pleased to see how many members played in a
county run competition for the first time.
would still like to see more new faces at some of our competitions next
season. So if you are a new member, or an old member who has recently
not played in any of our competitions, why not pledge to try out at
least one of them.
of England Congress
SCBA also organises and runs the West of England Congress, which
attracts players from all over the country. Once again it will be held
at the Winter Gardens in Weston-super-Mare from October 3rd to 5th
2014. The entries for the green point events tend to fill very quickly, so
please book early to
have a programme of events to help you improve your bridge and also a
list of Bridge Teachers who are available for tuition in Somerset.
Details can be found under Training & Seminars on this web site.
hope you have an enjoyable season.
