Spring Dates for your Diary


On Monday 9th April we will be holding our next monthly Seminar. The title of the seminar is "Play It Again, Sam" and will look at deals where Declarer play and Defence could have been handled better.The half-hour seminar starts promptly at 18.45, it's free and open to all. We operate a hosting system, so you don't need to come with a partner if you want to stay on and play, which we hope you will.

Our annual Bluebell walk for Members will take place on Saturday 21st April - a sign-up sheet will be available at the club nearer the time.

Pre-Bridge Seminar, Monday 8 January
Pre-Bridge Seminar, Monday 8 January

As with the previous three years, on Monday we'll be making a joint effort at solving Tony Forrester's Christmas Quiz, as published annually in the Daily Telegraph. For those members who haven't seen Tony's quiz, it's reproduced above.

So this isn't a seminar per se, it's more of a presenter-led discussion.

As with all our seminars, this discussion begins at 6.45pm, lasts half-an-hour, and is free to all. Our hosting system means that it's possible to come along without a partner and stay on to play bridge.

We look forward to seeing you for this our first seminar of the new year.

About Burnham Bridge Club
About Burnham Bridge Club

We have twice weekly sessions of good standard Duplicate Bridge at the very attractive South Bucks Bridge Centre - a purpose-converted 16th Century barn in its own grounds, between Beaconsfield, Maidenhead and Slough 

Our main session is at 7.30 every Monday evening, when we play Pairs, except Teams of Four on the third Monday each month except when this is a bank holiday.  A host is available to play with anyone without a partner on Pairs evenings.

We use Bridgemates, for instant scoring, with current scores displayed on a large screen.  Hand records and results print-outs are available within a few minutes of the end of every session. 

Several teams from the Club compete in the Berks and Bucks League of 8, with the A team in the first division.  We also encourage less experienced players and hold monthly free seminars before the start of an evening session.

Monday Night Host

A host is available for all Monday evening Duplicate Pairs sessions,
so anyone coming along without a partner is guaranteed a game.  This service may be used by any player not more than 6 times in a calendar year.

This does not apply for teams evenings or special events- check the calendar
