Clubs which play fewer than 26 sessions per annum

In an effort to ensure that we adapt our policies for the benefit of our members, our  affiliated clubs and the development of duplicate bridge in England we have reviewed our  existing policies on club affiliation   After consultation with the National Club Committee the  following change will be implemented on 1 April 2013. 

Bona fide duplicate bridge clubs which play less than 26 sessions per annum will be  permitted to affiliate to the English Bridge Union subject to their county’s agreement.  To  ensure that there is differentiation between our existing affiliated clubs and these new  clubs, affiliation costs will be double the annual affiliation fee plus payment of the full pay to  play subscription fee for each session played.
