The WBU Green Pointed Simultaneous Pairs events are held twice a year, in Spring and Autumn. This event has been expanded to a full five days, with different hands each day so players can play every day if they wish! Commentaries and travellers are sent out to the participating clubs as normal – the WBU is fortunate to have some very good volunteer commentators who write these for your interest and enjoyment !
The events are not restricted to Welsh clubs – all are welcome to join in and play these events. However, English clubs should note that the EBU has decided not to licence these events which means that overall master points cannot be awarded to English Clubs. However that DOES mean that non-affiliated English clubs are very welcome to join us and enjoy the fun of playing!

Does your Club need Directors?
Director Training Courses managed by the WBU National Director Tony Haworth using the WBU syllabus are available now.
These not for profit courses run by the WBU will offer you formal qualification once a course has been successfully completed.
The WBU offer Standard & Advanced Courses anywhere in Wales on request
A 2017 Laws of Duplicate Bridge Book plus WBU training publications are supplied FOC to all attendees.
The next WBU Standard Course is scheduled for the 3rd & 4th March at Porthcawl and is nearly fully subscribed.
Details of the course are as follows:
The course is two-days, concentrating on ‘book rulings’, with a view to trainee directors acquiring an appreciation and understanding of the Laws (rather than ‘learning’ them). The intention of this course is primarily to train directors to competently run Club Level events (but would not inhibit from running an Area Event with some assistance)
The course is designed around the new 2017 Laws, so can also be a refresher even for Directors with limited experience.
Day 1 gives a brief overview of the director’s role, powers, and duties, before more detailed appreciation of the Laws pertaining to various aspects of the Auction – change of call, insufficient bid, call out-of-rotation etc. The important new concept (2017 Laws) of ‘Comparable Call’ will be discussed at length.
Day 2 concentrates on various Law aspects of the ‘Play’ – penalty cards, leads-out-of turn, revokes etc. It also includes a session on ‘Movements’.
All presentations are via Powerpoint. This is ‘your’ course, so on both days there is a considerable involvement in simulation exercises.Follow the WBU on social media
