Change of Venue for Thursday sessions

Following from the incident at the bridge session on Thursday 19th February, the Club will no longer be meeting at the Ashford International Club.  From February 26th until further notice, our Thursday sessions will be held at the Ashford Golf Club, Sandyhurst Lane, TN25 4NT. 

Directions as follows:  From the M20: Exit at Junction 9 (West Ashford), take the A20 toward the town (first exit when approaching from Junction 10 or from Folkestone) to the next roundabout (about 200 yards), then take the 4th exit onto the A20 toward Charing & Lenham.  Go ahead at the next roundabout and Sandyhurst Lane is the next right turn just before the road becomes single carriageway.  The Golf Club entrance is on the right about 400 yards from the A20 immediately after passing over the motorway.  Time from the Junction 9 is approx 5 minutes.  If approaching from the A20 toward the town, turn left immediately after the road becomes dual carriageway.  There is also an entrance into Sandyhurst Lane at the edge of town from the A251 Faversham Road. 

The Golf Club venue may not be available on a permanent basis, and the Club Committee will be investigating alternative venues.

New Arrangements for the Host System

In accordance with the vote at the 2013 AGM, the host system will be revised as follows.  A host duty list will be published as at present, but the HOST will need to be activated.  Anyone wishing to play on a Tuesday evening and requiring a partner should telephone Bob Jones on 01233 756362 or phone / text to 07747 860342 by 5.30 pm on the day.  If more than one person needs a partner, you will be paired up.  Otherwise you will play with the host.  The host should telephone Bob Jones after 5.30 pm on the day to find out whether or not they are required, therefore avoiding a wasted journey or allowing time to make alternative arrangements for a partner.  As a result, it is expected Club Members previously excused host duty because of traveling long distance or shared travel will now do host duty.  Click to view the host list for 2014.  




The Ashford Bridge Club meets twice a week for Duplicate Bridge. Our Tuesday sessions are at the Givaudan (formerly Quest) Social Club, Kennington Road.  From February 26th 2015, our Thursday sessions are temporarily at the Ashford Golf Club, Sandyhurst Lane, TN25 4NT.  Both sessions start at 7.15 prompt.  A host system operates on Tuesdays but not on Thursdays.  The Club is affiliated to the EBU.  Visitors are welcome.
