Post-Covid Bridge – A number of Clubs are now starting to resume their FtoF sessions. The WBU recognises that Clubs need to adapt, but with Clubs varying so much, it feels that they will know their own requirements. However the Swansea Bridge Club has circulated an extensive Restart Protocol, much of it being suitable as a guideline for other Clubs (and Areas). Please read this in conjunction with the previous general WBU Guidelines.
The WBU also recognises there will be many administrative changes in the way Clubs operate (venue, session days, times, teaching facilities, continuance of online bridge, etc.), and in order to keep up-to-date with what’s happening, and to assess the overall impact of these changes, Clubs are asked to advise the WBU of their circumstances; this can be done using the WBU Club Information form. (For current information held, see ‘Club Details’->’Club Information’).
16.8.21

Results Submission – The WBU have now introduced a Form for non-BridgeWebs results submission. Captains of Welsh, Cambria, and Online League are encouraged to use the form, which can be found at ‘Events->Welsh Cup/Cambria Cup’ (and via the side panel), or ‘Online Bridge->Online League’, or ‘Results->Submission Form’.
Other relevant event organisers who wish to use the form please contact WBU Webmaster.
