Announcement
Merger of NSWBA Club Operations with Sydney Bridge Centre

The council of the NSWBA is pleased to announce that from the 1st of April 2015 the regular club operations at Goulburn St will be merged with those of the Sydney Bridge Centre, which presently operates from premises in Rozelle and Henley.

Regular club games at the Goulburn St venue and at each of the existing venues will all be run under the Sydney Bridge Centre name.

The principals of the current SBC, Will Jenner-O'Shea and Vanessa Brown will be joint chief executives and will be responsible for club operations.

They will strive to provide members with a good game of bridge run by professional, competent and friendly directors.

Vanessa, Will and Mac the Westie

Council sees this exciting initiative as providing a path for the growth of the club in the months and years to come. The club rooms are being upgraded to provide attractive playing conditions. There will be more sessions, lessons and development programmes provided to nurture existing members and encourage new growth.

In the longer term our plan is to obtain new premises in the city fringe which will bring the three venues together, increasing session sizes.

The NSWBA name remains but will be used for matters relating to its role as the State body administering bridge in NSW. Monday night championship events will also remain under the control of the NSWBA.
