Welcome to Church Hill Bridge Club
WELCOME
Church Hill Bridge Club is a small friendly club. We play duplicate bridge on Tuesday evenings and Friday mornings at the Church hall in Church Hill, Merstham.
Visitors and new members are welcome. We run a steward system so it is not necessary that you have a partner.

More details are provided on the Information page.
