Welcome to the Birches Bridge Club web site.
The Club was originally established to provide a club environment for students of our Founder, Sarah Mathews, and other beginners to play bridge in a relaxed and friendly environment on a Thursday afternoon. We now have over 100 members who play bridge at all levels of expertise at one or more of our three sessions on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons and Monday evenings.
We have Duplimated boards for all sessions and the hand file is posted on our website for members to print or view on-line. We use BridgeMates electronic scoring and the results are available as soon as a session ends.
We have a competitions programme for all three sessions, some of which are limited to members only. We welcome new members and visitors, but please contact our Secretary to make sure there are no restrictions on play at the session in question.
Click on the menu options on the left of this message or on other options to the right to access other pages in the website.
As many of our members are using more adventurous conventions at our Monday and Wednesday sessions in particular, and many members are playing at other clubs where different conventions are being used, we would like members to have partnership convention cards at all of our sessions. Copies of standard convention cards are in the folder in the cupboard or can be found via the Permitted Conventions option in the left hand menu and these can be downloaded, amended as appropriate and printed for use at the club. The cards do not need to be complicated - the Standard Englsih Full card is relatively simple and can be adapted to even the simplest of conventions used.
