Welcome to Chew Valley Bridge Club
Information
Information

 

Chew Valley Bridge Club was founded as a members' club in 1987. It is a friendly duplicate club situated in the Chew Valley in Somerset, nine miles south west of Bristol. The club started off life playing in various venues in Chew Magna but since 2007 the club has been based in Chew Stoke. We always welcome visitors and potential new members and try to make them feel at home. The club is not affiliated to the English Bridge Union (EBU) and is listed on the Somerset Contract Bridge Association (SCBA) website as an unaffiliated club. There is no membership subscription, only a table fee.



Venue: Methodist Church Hall,
             Chapel Lane,
             Chew Stoke,
             BS40 8XD

Day: Thursday evening with play starting promptly at 7.15 pm

Table Fee: £2.00 which includes tea or coffee and biscuits

If you don't have a partner the club can often find one for you.

Further information is available from the Chairman, Alan Rodgman on (01761) 220139.


 

 

Further Information
Further Information

The Club meets on a weekly basis around 43 times a year playing duplicate pairs, except for three occasions when we have our Spring Teams, Summer Teams, and Autumn Teams evenings. The playing season runs from late September through to the end of July. Every year we have a Summer Drinks Party and a Christmas Party. At the Christmas Party presentations are made to the Club's 'Player of the Year' and to the Club's 'Most Improved Player'. The winner of the 'Christmas Competition' is also awarded their prize.


If you can play bridge but haven't yet ventured into a club then give us a try at one of our regular meetings. Alternatively come to one of the occasional evenings we have for new or inexperienced players. This may well encourage you to become a member. We have players of differing standards but what unites us all is enjoying a fascinating game in a friendly atmosphere in a very comfortable venue.
