Press the information button above for the answer to all of these.

Evening Sessions

Please be sure to arrive at the club at least ten minutes before play begins, that is before 6.50 pm so that play is not delayed. It may not be possible to accommodate latecomers. 

Want to Play but don't have a partner

Perhaps you are new to the Bridge club or a regular member whose partner is unavailable one evening.  What to do?  If it is our Thursday evening session there should be no problem as we run a host system and if you come along to the session, preferably a few minutes earlier, we should be able to arrange a partner.  For other sessions there are people who may be able to help you find a partner.

Our Tuesday Partners contact is  Mary Sharp tel.  07879 828304

please note Tuesday sessions start at 3.30pm and you should not arrive before 3.15pm.  Greater care must be taken driving through the playground at this time as there may be pupils present

Random Seeded Teams

This competition will take place on the fourth Thursday of each month from October to June.   In December, the proximity of the fourth Thursday to Christmas day may mean the bridge club is closed and the competition will not run that month.   It is proving very popular but for administration purposes and to ensure we do not end up with an odd number of pairs you must sign on the notice board to indicate you wish to take part by the Monday preceding the event.  The current scores can be seen under the "Competition" menu and "Random Seeded Teams Points".
