World Bridge Federation – Press Release

From Anna Gudge (WBF Communications Manager)

The 44th World Bridge Team Championships comprising the Bermuda Bowl, Venice Cup, D’Orsi Senior Bowl, National Mixed Teams, and the 12th World Transnational Open Teams will be held at the Wuhan International Convention Center, Wuhan, Hubei Province, China from Saturday 14th to Saturday 28th September 2019.

More information will be available in due course – you can find the official announcement of this at:

We would appreciate you publicising this as widely as possible, particularly with regard to the World Transnational Open Teams … this is enjoyed by so many as it gives them the opportunity to participate in and enjoy the atmosphere and excitement of a World event.

As more information becomes available it will, of course, be posted on the WBF Website at

The Master Points (WWBC & WBF’s Events)

Please find the message sent on behalf of MP Policy Committee.

To secretary of Aberdeen,

You are being sent this because your clubs participated in a WWBC event  earlier this year, and I know that many players are concerned that their  Master Points have not yet been uploaded to MEMPAD.

At a recent meeting of the Master Points policy committee the following decision was made:

Points will be uploaded for the events played this year, however the SBU  will not honour points awarded for any future events organised by WWBC.  WBF events’ points will continue to be honoured as in the past.

The Master Points Handbook will be updated with this information as soon as is practical.

Kind regards,

Alison Carmichael (on behalf of MP Policy Committee)

Results Online

Dear member,

Please note that our website migration has been completed. As the result of changing an old to new system our results section is temporarily unavailable. All the result are accessible in the Bridge Club.

Apologies for inconvenience caused.


Table Money

Dear Member,

Please be advised of our new way of recording table money. We ask you to complete a payment

slip with the total amount and your signature. This should be placed inside the envelope along with the table money and only the date should be recorded on the outside of the envelope. I would ask that the same is done when counting tea money.

Payment slips will be beside envelopes in the cupboards or behind the bar.

Thanks for your assistance.
