Welcome to Burnham Bridge Club
Burnham v Ascot Teams-of-24

This year it's our turn to host the annual teams-of-24 match between Burnham and Ascot, and the match takes place at SBBC on Thursday 9 August. This is primarily a social event, but there's a trophy at stake, and we look forward to simply adding ditto marks at the side of '2018'!

The match itself starts promptly at 7.30pm, but there will be a complimentary tipple available to all players from 7pm. We shall be breaking at the mid-way point for buffet-style refreshments.

In the 12-table Mitchell-style share-and-relay format we employ, Ascot pairs will be stationary throughout, NS at odd-numbered tables, EW at even-numbered tables. Burnham pairs move up one table each round, changing orientation as they move. The 12 scores on each board are aggregated and converted into imps using the special table provided on each traveller. Players should note that the traveller score columns are headed 'Burnham' and 'Ascot' rather than NS and EW, but we shall also be using Bridgemates, just to be on the safe side.

Our next seminar takes place on Monday 3rd September.   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.

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
