Welcome to the BOURNE BRIDGE CLUB
Welcome to the BOURNE BRIDGE CLUB

The Bourne Club Bridge Section – known as The Bourne Bridge Club - is a friendly and comfortable place where many of its 130 members will be found enjoying themselves on Monday and Thursday evenings every week. These competitive - but non-confrontational - duplicate sessions start promptly at 7.20 pm and end about 10.30 pm.

All hands are computer dealt and Bridgemates are used for scoring. All results are posted on our Website immediately after play has finished. The club is affiliated to the English Bridge Union and the "Best Behaviour at Bridge" code of practice is observed as far as is humanly possible by everyone.

Throughout the year Duplicate and Teams competitions are held. Winners qualify to represent the club in Surrey Finals.

On Friday evenings some members of the Bourne Club meet at 7.20 pm for a very relaxed session of ‘No Fear’ bridge. "Supervised Practice" sessions, under the supervision of two senior members of the club, are held every Monday afternoon at 2.00 pm for those who would like help with their bidding or play.

Prior to applying to join the club potential members may visit the club on up to six times to see if they think that our club might be right for them. At the same time Club Committee members decide if they think that the person applying will fit in generally with the ethos of the club.

Visitors pay a Guest Fee of £1.50. Should they subsequently accept an invitation to join they will be required to pay a one-off Joining Fee of £25 after which the Annual Subscription of £133.00 entitles the member to play in any bridge session at the Bourne Club. Table Money is £1.00 per session on Mondays and Thursdays and just 60p for the relaxed session on Fridays.

Playing bridge in the comfortable environment of the Bourne Club costs the equivalent of one Cappucinno a week after which you have the opportunity to play 70 or more hands over about 9 hours which will cost the equivalent of another cup of coffee … and the bridge is so much better for you than all that caffeine!

To find out more about playing bridge in the friendly atmosphere at the Bourne Club ring the Chairman, Chris Tibbott, on 01252 716075.

Caffe Bourne Bridge
Caffe Bourne Bridge

Caffe Bourne Bridge  found a number of loyal followers during its trial period last winter accompanied by much hilarity mostly at the expense of Tony, Barrie and Chris confessing to their various disaster hands. The Committee wish to continue with three more dates next winter and, although it is thought that generally sessions on a Tuesday morning work best, the first one in January will be on a Wednesday. Before taking a break for last summer we introduced a 15-minute presentation at the start of each session.

The next session is on Tuesday 19th March at 10.30 am when Tony will spend 15 minutes on "Leads - good and not-so-good! "Following his enlightening talk on  "The Value of Transfers" earlier in the month, John Bryant has volunteered to tell us all about "Doubles" on Tuesday 16th April. This will be the last session before the summer break. 

Please join us when you can for a convivial 100 minutes or so as you probably deserve an elevenses in any case.

Please send topics or interesting hands that you'd like to see discussed for amusement and instruction,  to Tony at antonyphilpott@btinternet.com.
