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

The Bourne Bridge Club is a friendly and comfortable place where many of the club's 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 here 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 by everyone.

Throughout the year Duplicate and Teams competitions are held with the winners representing the club in Surrey Finals.

On Friday evenings the "No Fear" section of the Bourne Club meets at 7.20 pm and "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.

You are invited to play as a guest at any time in our own clubhouse which comprises a well stocked bar, lounge and catering facilities.

Caffe Bourne Bridge
Caffe Bourne Bridge

It would be impossible to promise you the style of the "Caffe Florian" in St Mark’s Square, Venice. Considered by many to be the oldest café in Europe, the classic neo-Baroque Caffe Florian was opened in December 1720. Being the only café that served women in the 18th century, it was Casanova’s favourite hunting ground, while Lord Byron was another dashing chap known to prop up its bar.

Nearly 300 years later "Caffe Bourne Bridge" will open its doors on Tuesday 26th September from 10.30 am to 12.00 noon on a trial basis. It will not be able to offer the atmosphere of the "Caffe Florian" nor will Casanova be attending, but you can expect a decent cup of coffee @ £2.50 and plenty of informal discussion about hands that have been played in the past month on Mondays and Thursdays. Tony, Barrie and Helen have offered to host the gatherings and, with the aid of a laptop projector, we'll all be given the chance to relive our triumphs/disasters and confess where we went inexplicably wrong! Please make a diary note of any interesting hand you come across.

Please bring your own personal laptop, I-pad or tablet with you so we can have one on each table.

All members of The Bourne Club (Monday, Thursday and Friday players and those in our Supervised Practice group) are invited and there is no need to book - just turn up for your elevenses and enjoy. If it proves popular, the "Caffe Bourne Bridge" will again open its doors for business on Tuesday 31st October and again on Tuesday 28th November.
