Club Overview
Club Overview

 

Welcome to the Bradshaw Bridge Club web site.

 

The Bradshaw Bridge Club is a very friendly bridge club that meets on most Tuesday evenings and most Wednesday afternoons for duplicate pairs bridge, though very occasionally we play teams.

 

We meet at the Maiden Place Community Centre, Lower Earley, Reading, RG6 3HE on:

Tuesday evenings:         7.15 p.m. for 7.30 until 10.30 p.m.
Wednesday afternoons:  1.15 p.m. for 1.30 until 4.30 p.m.

 Bridgemates are used so the movement is fixed at 1.20 pm and 7.20 pm. Directors will normally not allow players to take part if both members of the pair are not seated by 1.20 pm or 7.20 pm.  

With exceptions made for people with special needs - seating positions and tables are allocated randomly by drawing a card on arrival.

Bridge playing visitors are welcome (but there is no host system) and membership of the club is available.

Visitors: please note that if we reach our maxium table capacity members have priority.

The Club is affiliated to the English Bridge Union. EBU Masterpoints are awarded at most Club evenings and will be credited directly, approximately every four weeks.

The Club is also a member of the Berks & Bucks Contract Bridge Association. We enter 2 teams into the Berks & Bucks League of 8, and a team of 4 in the Bracknell league.

Winter Wekend 2018

The Club had a very successful weekend at the Oxford Spires Hotel, a lovely modern hotel with an indoor swimming pool, spa and gym, located a 15 minute riverside or roadside walk into the beautiful, historic centre of Oxford.

A total of 65 people attended, making 15 1/2 tables playing bridge and 3 non-playing visitors. The programme included a Friday night drinks reception, delicious breakfasts and evening meals with four bridge sessions including a Teams session on the Saturday evening.

It was obvious from the glowing thanks received from many of the participants that this was a very successful weekend for everyone. According to the feedback, it seemed to be generally agreed that we should try to return to this venue for a future club weekend. 

Congratulations to the winners of the Victor Ludorum - Anthony Collins and Barry Read.

The next Club weekend will be held from Sunday 17 to Tuesday 19 February 2019 at the Marsham Court Hotel,  Bournemouth
