Juniors & Directing

W

ith the bridge season in full swing,

there's an EBED Club Director training

course happening somewhere around

the country almost every week. Congratulations to

Lymington BC which hosted the most wellattended

course in several years, with participants

from both affiliated and non-affiliated clubs across

the area. In the summer there were also three one

day refresher courses for those who wished to brush

up their knowledge after gaining some practical

experience - whether for more complex judgement

rulings or the day to day revokes and leads out of

turn. There's something for everyone in these

courses - and any clubs who would richard@ebedcio.org.ukher the full course or a refresher should write to

richard@ebedcio.org.uk. Details of the current

course list are available on the EBED website

LOTS OF EVENTS FOR YOUNG PLAYERS

The EBED Young Bridge Challenge (including the

Schools Cup) is set for Saturday March 4th, at

Loughborough Grammar School. Gloucestershire

with Oxfordshire will also be following up on last

summer's Wessex Junior event with another

weekend of training and competition hosted by

Cheltenham Bridge Club and Cheltenham Ladies'

College. Over 100 juniors attended each of these

events this year, together with England's junior

squad leaders - and we hope for even more in 2017.

Sussex is also planning to run another Junior Camp

in Summer 2017. Many thanks to all those who

contributed their time and resources in making

these events such a success.

The teaching of minibridge and bridge has

started in a number of new schools this term with

volunteers, equipment and support being provided

by local counties and EBED. More people are taking

part in the English Bridge Junior Award Scheme and

EBED is developing a new Schools Pack to help

promote the benefits of the game within the

educational environment.

Finally, thank you to the 130+ clubs and 2,400

pairs who took part in the EBED Simultaneous

Pairs held over five nights in September, raising an

anticipated £12,000 to fund EBED's work

researching and promoting the health and social

benefits of playing bridge. r
