As required by the SBU, the club has now registered with MEMPAD, a computerised data base with information on SBU districts, clubs and members including their Master Points ranking. For those who have not already done so and wish to log on to MEMPAD, send an Email to Janet Rixon at quoting your Master Points number (its the same number as your SBU membership number on your membership card). Janet will send you a temporary password and you can log on using your Master Points Number as your user name.


As discussed and agreed at our AGM on March 16, the following are the arrangements for the administration of Club Local Master Points Certificates.

  • Certificates will be awarded for all club sessions except Wednesday evenings.
  • Certificates will be sent in batches to Janet Rixon once a year for registration in the SBU Master Points scheme
  • Members who wish to administer their certificates by themselves to notify Archie Hunter so this can be arranged
  • Master Points Certificates awarded by other means (e.g. Simultaneous Pairs Competitions) will be placed in the small filing box in the club room for members to collect. Any uncollected certificates will be included in the annual batches sent to Janet Rixon.

Biggar Bridge Club General Information
Biggar Bridge Club General Information

The purpose of the site is two fold.  Firstly to provide a convenient point of contact and information for existing members and secondly to spread the word to the larger community that Bridge is alive and well in Upper Clydesdale. 

Founded in 1997, the club has a membership of around 100 coming from Biggar and many places in surrounding areas. The club moved to the upper floor of the Biggar Business Park in June 2012, where it enjoys modern comfortable accommodation comprising a main playing room for up to 9 tables, a small side room used for small groups, classes and committee meetings plus a well equipped kitchen and toilets. 

The club runs regular weekly sessions in the evening (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday) and afternoon (Monday and Friday). Classes based on the Scottish Bridge Union Curriculum are held for beginners and those who want to just brush up their Bridge each year; these run from September through to April. In addition the club runs two league teams, "Biggar" and "Tinto" in the Lanarkshire Bridge Association; the teams are currently competing in the first and second divisions respectively. Other activities include participation in periodic national simultaneous pairs competitions and occasional workshops for more experienced members.

The picture shows the club's main playing room.
