We are sad to announce the passing of Jenny Steel.


Jenny was the widow of Eric, one of the leading players of the North District . He  was a member of the SBU council for 23 years1974-97 and was SBU president in 1984 and 1985.  He was a leading Scottish director.  Jenny and Eric together were stalwarts of the Northern Arts club. 
Their son Les is one of the best ever Scottish players. 
Jenny herself was no mean player particularly when she played with Eric; they won the Rayne and also the Bowman (life masters pairs) 2  years running. 
Jenny won a number of ladies caps with Margaret Alexander.   She also won the Scottish Ladies cup twice.  She became a grand master in 2002 and was fiercely proud of both Eric and Les.  Ill health meant she didn’t play much over the last 5 years.  She will be sorely missed.

Get Published!

From time to time, we receive information/articles/opinion and other good stuff that doesn't easily fit anywhere else on the website. So we've created a shiny new blog to collate and publish this material.

Got something bridge-related you'd like to see posted on our website? Simply e-mail it to us and we'll post it for you.

Please don't send anything defamatory or that breaks copyright.

If you'd like to be able to publish material from your bridge circle or club that may be of interest to others on a regular basis, get in touch - we'd love to hear from you and help you. Don't worry - if you can type an email, you already know enough. We provide training and support to help you along too.

Want to learn?

The North District promotes bridge through education for both children and adults.

Better Behaviour

With Liz's permission, we've collected together her excellent series of articles on Better Behaviour at Bridge and published them here, in the interests of reaching a wider audience. The entire series is there and we'll keep it up to date as Liz releases new ones.

Happy reading and better behaviour...


The North District runs a number of events and competitions throughout the year. Some are district competitions and some are qualifiers for national competitions.

All have trophies and other prizes on offer and, of course, master points - both local and national (red) points.

We have a full calendar of events, congresses and other events here.
