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.
The club uses Bridgemates and so the movement is fixed at 1.20 pm and 7.20 pm respectively. 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.
From time to time, the administrator of the Bradshaw Web Site makes updates to the site and on a few occasions, these updates mean that people trying to access the site might not see the latest update.

The club has had the occasional problem in setting up ScoreBridge and BridgeMates in a timely way due to a very few players not knowing if their partner is going to arrive or not.
Would players who know that they are going to be inadvertently delayed in their journey to the club, please telephone their partner to advise them of the situation.
