Welcome to the Western Cape Bridge Union (WCBU) website

Bridge is a fantastic game played by millions of people, old and young, around the world, both online and with playing cards round the comfort of a bridge table.

While bridge clubs are closed for traditional bridge around the card table, the WCBU and its affiliated clubs provide daily online pairs and teams events using BBO and RealBridge. Players from around the world participate in these events. For more details, consult our Upcoming, Calendar and J&M Bridge pages.

Although the WCBU is headquartered in beautiful Cape Town, this website aims to help people everywhere to learn and improve their bridge and to find partners and tournaments in South Africa. In particular, we encourage young people in the Western Cape to contact the WCBU for assistance in learning the game and establishing peer playing groups.

Players are encouraged to register on the website so you can enter competitions, view and analyse results, find partners and stay abreast of developments in the South African bridge world. We are always looking for volunteers to assist in teaching young people to play.

South African bridge clubs will remain closed for physical bridge round the green baize until further notice. Once travel is again possible, we encourage visitors to South Africa's Western Cape region to use this website to find local clubs and tournaments to enhance your holiday experience. We might even be able to find you a partner.

In the meantime you can play in our local online tournaments and meet our players by logging on to BBO, selecting Virtual Clubs - South Africa and choosing a WCBU, Impala or Pinelands tournament - we look forward to seeing you at our 'tables'.

For members in the Western Cape, SABF Subs of R 100 for 2021 can be paid into the following bank account: Bank ABSA Branch 632005 Account 918 767 7416 giving your SABF Number and name as reference.
