To get to know the club and its members, visitors may attend up to six bridge sessions per calendar year after which they are requested to apply for membership.

Which night should I play Bridge on? A Short Guide

All members pay the same subscription and are welcome to play on any night of the week.

As a guide

Wednesday – is a good night for anybody returning to duplicate bridge, starting duplicate bridge after  lessons, anyone who wants to gain more confidence with their bridge.  The director will help them with bridge etiquette and advise them on bidding after the hand has been played if they wish. Normally play 24 boards in 3 hours

Saturdays-  a slightly higher standard than Wednesday, experienced players who like to play at the weekend.  Fairly relaxed. Normally play 24 boards in 3 hours.

Monday  and Thursday – enjoyable bridge with experienced bridge players, the standard of bridge is the same on these two evenings.  The play is faster than Wednesday and Saturday. Normally 27 boards in 3 hours.

All the directors are fully qualified. The most important  difference between  Wednesdays and the other three nights is the speed of play and a rather more formal approach to etiquette and behaviour at the bridge table.  

If you are happy that you play  reasonably quickly  and that  you know and understand what you should and should not do at the bridge table then your bridge will improve more quickly if you play on a Monday or a Thursday.

If you would like any further help please email Michael at
