Richard Lederer

The Lederer Memorial Trophy is a prestigious invitation event for bridge teams. The Lederer Memorial was first played in 1945 as a tribute to Richard Lederer.

It was originally an inter-county competition, but soon became a challenge event between London’s Bridge Clubs. Richard Lederer was a leading international player who ran his own club and he contributed greatly to the development of English bridge in its formative years. He won the Gold Cup three times in the 1930s.

This year’s Lederer will be held on 25 and 26 February at the RAC in central London.

There’s another great lineup full of English and international stars. This year we welcome a team from Israel for the first time.
