The home of Scottish Bridge

 This year the SBU Overseas Congress will be in Benidorm at the 4* Melia Hotel from the 5th to the 12th May 2025.    The Overseas Congress combines Bridge with a holiday.   There will be bridge every evening and during the day you can chose to play or take advantage of all the hotel and Benidorm has to offer.  There will also be optional half-day and day trips to local sites of interest.    We hope to repeat the success of last year’s event in Side, Turkey.

Players without partners are very welcome as there are two bridge playing hosts who will play if necessary.    Non-bridge playing partners are also welcome.

There will be a Swiss Pairs Event run over three evenings and a Swiss Teams event run over two evenings which will be Red Pointed (equivalent to English Green – points are transferable across the “Home Nations”).    Most attendees play in these competitions.  There will be afternoon pairs and teams events also red-pointed.  You are welcome to come and play or not as you wish.  The last night will be a fun competition – last year it was “Play with the Masters”. 

Players of all standards are welcome.   We aim to provide a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy our great game. 

The event is run by the Scottish Bridge Union.  The bridge is organised by two experienced Scottish National Directors.  Bridgemates and pre-dealt boards are standard and results will be shown as soon as possible after the event finishes. 

The detailed programme will be available by September.  If you have any queries do not hesitate to contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
