Benefits

Affiliating your club with the English Bridge Union (EBU) provides many services and benefits to your club including Resources, Discounts, Training, Access to Gradings and Rankings schemes and more.  Read Benefits of club affiliation to learn more.

Universal Membership

Since April 2010, the EBU has been funded through Universal Membership which means that anyone playing in an EBU-affiliated club (provided they are a member of that club) automatically becomes a member of the EBU and pays a small subscription amount each time they play.

If you are interested in affiliating your club and would like to discuss this further, please contact our Club Liaison Officer, Jonathan Lillycrop - jonathan@ebu.co.uk - who will be able to discuss with you the benefits of affiliation, and the process for doing so.
