Master Points Database

How to get at your points

Visit MEMPAD now.

MEMPAD gives every SBU member their own area where current Master point totals and rating can be seen. This information is updated daily. Clubs submit master points on-line so you will be able to see your MP totals updated relatively soon after you have played at your local club. There’s also various other information available about members, clubs and SBU competitions.

This really is an excellent system, and very easy to use. email the Master Point Secretary () and ask for a login.

Remember to quote your MasterPoint number; you can then register, update your personal details (address, telephone number, email address etc.) and change to your own personal password. Ultimate objective after successive phases — no more wee pieces of paper!


Here is the Constitution of the East District as approved at the AGM in May 2011.

The Laws of Bridge

The SBU implemented the new 2017 Laws on 1st September 2017. Copies of the new Laws are available from Anne Perkins.
