NEBA A - Newcastle Journal Bridge Challenge Cup

Representative match played annually between the East District and the North East Bridge Association.  

More Information

Ian Rankin writes -"The solid silver cup is called the 'Newcastle Journal Bridge Challenge Cup' & matches appear to have been held every year since 1956 except for 1968 & 2008. Originally they were tripartite matches between NEBA and the Western & Eastern divisions of the SBU, but the Western District dropped out in the mid-eighties". 

Clive Owen adds "Actually for many years there were four teams playing. The [SBU] Central District also participated but never won. It used to be a two day event with a dinner on the Saturday night. With the increased demands of a modern bridge calendar Central and West dropped out. It was the blue riband of the NEBA calendar and everyone played their strongest teams unlike now. I don’t know about 2008 but virtually certain that in 1968 the competition will have taken place but the winners will not have engraved the trophy".
