Welcome to the Bracknell Bridge League.  
We have been been running a teams-of-four Bridge league in the Bracknell, Wokingham, Crowthorne, Camberley and Yateley area for more than 50 years and currently have three divisions in the League as well as a knockout handicap/pivot competition. New teams are welcome to join, although it is now, unfortunately, too late for the 2017/8 season. Team members do not need to be EBU members, or members of a local club, to play in the league.  You do need a minimum of four players (preferably 5 or 6 to provide reserves), and a venue where you can host your home matches. Please contact for more information, or if you wish to register interest in entering a team in the 2018/9 season.
