Andrew Leslie has been working hard to organise the Western League Counties into playing a series of friendly matches against each other on BBO.

Would you like to play for Devon?

If you and your partner would like to take part, please email Andrew ([email protected]).


The format is still being finalised but at the moment is:

  • played in 3 divisions (possible novice teams added for some matches)
  • head to head matches of 16 or 24 boards
  • on Saturdays evenings (though by agreement with the team captains can be played within 24 hours of the specified start time).
