  • Please give the event name as a reference

You may submit cheques (payable to 'SCBA') to the Competitions Secretary, postal address on the committee page.


See item 2. in General Competition Rules.

In brief, almost all Suffolk bridge is open to members of the EBU and exceptions are granted to visitors registered with foreign National Bridge Organisations.

However a small number of Suffolk events are open only to players giving Suffolk primary allegiance. Those are:

  • Championship Pairs
  • Championship Teams
