Table Talk

Table Talk is the magazine of Suffolk Bridge and has been published since 1984. Currently it is twice-yearly, in spring and autumn/winter. Inside you will find articles about all aspects of bridge for all levels and experience, written by Suffolk players for Suffolk players.

Table Talk is distributed at clubs and teaching groups, in fact, pretty much anywhere that bridge is played in the county – make sure you pick up a copy. If you're an SCBA member yet don't visit a Suffolk club then we'll post one to you. Any problems with getting a copy, contact the editor above or email .
