The home of Scottish Bridge

The Scottish Bridge Union’s Master Point scheme came into operation on 1 September 1957. A committee of the SBU, in conjunction with the EBU, under the umbrella of the British Bridge League (BBL) prepared the scheme which all home national bridge organisations (EBU/NIBU/SBU/WBU) adhered to. In June 1993, the SBU transferred its paper master point records to a computer.


In July 2013 SBU Master Points and Membership records were combined into one database, named MEMPAD. - this website contains master points and membership data for all current and past SBU members. It is a secure database and can be updated by members themselves (access via a password) plus club and SBU officials.
