Winter League 2017-201821-Aug-2017

The Winter League is Suffolk's premier arrange-and-play teams event – and one of the best ways to play bridge in Suffolk.

It is competitive but friendly bridge with matches played in players' homes on dates agreed between captains. There are promotions and relegations between the divisions at the end of each season. The competition runs between October and April inclusive with each team typically playing one 24-board match a month. Squads of up to six are allowed, with (usually) only four at each match.

Contact league Secretary to register interest or ask any questions by Sunday 10th September.

Not played the Winter League before?

New teams are very welcome at all levels. If you are new to teams bridge and find the idea attractive but are somewhat fazed by facing experienced opponents the League Secretary would still like to hear from you. If there is sufficient interest new divisions can easily be created.
