Welcome to The Thursday Bridge Club
WELCOME
WELCOME

                               

                                                                   WELCOME TO THE THURSDAY BRIDGE CLUB

 

We meet at the Hallmark Hotel, Durley Chine Road, Bournemouth BH2 5JS every Thursday. From 24th August play will start at 7.00pm. Members must be seated by 6.50pm.

 

The club currently has 116 members and membership is closed for the foreseeable future. The hotel limits us to 20 tables and on some evenings we've been full. 

 

Priority is given to members wishing to play. As we have been averaging 18 tables we are unable to accomodate any new visitors. Returning visitors will be made to feel welcome and we will do our best to ensure that you will be able to play but we can't guarantee that. You may be asked to sit outside the bridge room until we know there are seats available or you may be seated in the bridge room on the proviso that you can only play if space permits.

 

                                                                           Important Information Regarding Hotel Car Parking and Hotel Exit to the Car Park

 

Members and visitors who use any of the Hallmark Hotel's car parks must register their vehicle registration number on the electronic device in the bar or at Reception to avoid incurring a fine. The external door to the hotel's car park in the bridge room corridor is locked at 10.00pm. Members and visitors should therefore use the main entrance to exit the hotel at the end of the evening.

 

 

 

 

2017 Charity Evenings
