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.  Our Thursday sessions are at the Ashford International Social Club, Beaver Road.  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. 


Would Club members attending our Thursday sessions at the Ashford International Sports & Social Club please note and follow the following procedures:

All Bridge Club members who are regular or occasional players on Thursdays should also be Social Club members and carry their membership swipe card with them.  If you do not have a card please ask Richard or Bob for a form to be completed.  The Bridge Club will pay the Social Club fee.  

Non Social Club members will need to be signed in as a guest and the Bridge Club will pay the guest fee of 1 provided the visitor is a Bridge Club member.  Those with cards please ensure they are carrying them to avoid unnecessary costs.
