Further information to be used on Club listings welcomed. Competition details with brochures happily published on the Events Calendar.

All Welsh Bridge Union affiliated clubs welcome new members. Playing bridge improves concentration and helps memory retention which is an important part of the health and well being of all players but of particular benefit to the older age group. Playing bridge is a social event – particularly important to many widowed, elderly people and single people living alone.

For administrative purposes, the WBU is split into four geographical areas.
