HandicapTeams Championship

Congratulations to Stuart, George, Gill and Steve. They won the Handicap Teams Championship by a massive margin. Very well played!!

A Word From Our Chairman

Mark has asked us to display the following message:


"Just a note to thank all those members who helped to clear the club car park of snow on the Sunday of the last Yorkshire League matches. I know it was much appreciated by all of our opponents attending the club that day. Brilliant work."


Here also is the text of 2 emails we received:


"Can I, on behalf of Huddersfield Bridge Club, thank the members of Bradford Bridge Club for their outstanding hospitality yesterday.

Their efforts in clearing the car park of snow and ice were nothing short of heroic, and we were very well looked after before and during the matches.

Kind Regards

Patrick Trevanion"


"I would like to thank you and other members of Bradford bridge club for clearing the car park and ramp and carrying my wheelchair up the stairs.

it's getting too difficult for me and I can't go to Huddersfield B C because of the steps so don't know whether I will be seeing you in the future unless maybe I get a couple of new hips.



Thanks to all involved.

YCBA Inter-City League - Match Day 7


Scores from 4th March 2018.

Bradford 'A'       7   13 Huddersfield 'A'
Bradford 'B'       8   12 Huddersfield 'B'
Huddersfield 'C'       P     P Bradford 'C'
Bradford 'D'     12     8 Brighouse 'D'
Bradford 'E'     12     8 Keighley 'E'


A disappointing end to the season. Our 'B' team are definitely relegated and only the most unlikely outcome of a postponed game in Division 1 can save the 'A' team from the same fate.


Our 'C' team match was sidelined by a combination of weather and a late injury to one of the team. They have a theoretical chance of promotion but will require specific outcomes from the two remaining fixtures in their Division.


The 'D' team finished fourth in their Division and the 'E' team fell into the bottom half of the same Division. These two teams had the best performances in todays matches.


Thanks to everyone who turned out to venues all over Yorkshire during Autumn and Winter, especially in todays weather.  And a huge thanks to all those who rallied round to produce the refreshments for the home fixtures.


Let's hope for bigger and better things next year.


The final league tables can be viewed on the YCBA website.

The '100' Club

Soon, Morris Brown will be asking members if they would like to take part in the '100' Club this year.

This is a fund-raising venture which, not only contributes revenue for Bradford Bridge Club, but also provides a very pleasant monetary surprise for the winners of the weekly draws.

In 2017 £950 was collected, of which £500 was paid out in Prize money and £450 went into club funds.

Your support for the '100' Club in 2018 would be greatly appreciated.
