Suffolk has 18 affiliated clubs and over 900 members. There is an explanation of the relationships between club, county and the national body together with a breakdown of those numbers by clubs on the membership page.

Table Talk

Suffolk's twice-yearly magazine. Table Talk is distributed at clubs and teaching groups, in fact, pretty much anywhere that bridge is played in the county. If you're an SCBA member yet don't visit a Suffolk club then we'll post one to you. You can download a copy [large PDF] for easy searching, sharing or to enjoy in full colour.

You can get all the details from our Table Talk page.

Monthly Newsletter

We send a monthly newsletter to all members by email. To receive it, simply send an email to and we'll put you on the mailing-list.

If you've given us your address and don't appear to be getting the newsletter, check first that it hasn't found its way to any spam folder. Though we take precautions (like including your name) this can happen. If you're worried about any aspect of signing up see our policy on mailings.

There's an index if you would like to refer back or check to see if you've missed one

Of particular interest to players (as opposed to club officials, administrators etc.) are:
