English Ladies Bridge started this petition to English Bridge Union

Please support the English Ladies Bridge team

  • Sally Brock's daughter, Briony, had been unwell and was on the mend. After receiving the unanimous support of her teammates and captain, Sally requested that the English Bridge Union allow Briony to travel with the team to Croatia.  The team had been selected to represent England in the European Bridge Championships. This request was denied

     

    ·        The English Bridge Union members deserve to be represented by the best possible team.

     

    ·        Sally is one of the best women's players in the world. She has won multiple world bridge championships and brought glory, honour and medals to England over many years.  

     

    ·       She has dedicated her time voluntarily and worked hard for this success.

     

    ·       The selection committee, which is made up of eight men,  have  ignored all requests and concerns from  the original women's team.

     

    ·        Sally's partner Nicola Smith is a winner of multiple world championships. Nicola was also dropped from the team and the other four members thought they had no choice but to withdraw from the team, due to their voices being ignored and the selectors’ refusal to compromise and agree to a very reasonable request.

     

    ·        Sally is a committed member of the team, and Briony’s presence in Croatia would in no way detract from Sally’s focus or dedication to the game.  

     

    ·        The event begins on the 22nd of June and we need your support for Sally.
