If you are thinking of leaving any money to this club in your will, we would put it towards the purchase of an electronic scoring system, which costs around £3,000. This would enable players to see their progress 'live' on a display screen each Monday evening, and not have to wait until the next day to learn their final score.

The Rules are as follows:

  1. The yearly Club Championship is held on the second Monday of each month from August to February inclusive.  That gives each qualifying pair seven opportunities to participate.
  2. There will be one winning pair on each Club Championship evening.  This will usually entail a Mitchell movement with an arrow switch towards the end.
  3. This is a Pairs competition restricted to members only.  A ranking achieved by a visiting pair, or a member playing with a visitor, will be struck from the Club Championship records, and the rankings of all member pairs beneath them will be adjusted upwards.
  4. The score achieved by each qualifying pair on a Club championship evening is the ranking obtained on that evening. For example, they score a '1' if they came first, or a '2' if they came second.
  5. Each pair’s best four scores are used to calculate their final position.  These four scores are then added together.
  6. The overall winners of the Club Chamoionship are the qualifying pair with the lowest total score.
  7. Should play on any of the championship’s stated dates have to be cancelled for any reason, a new date will be decided by the Committee.
AGM coming ... 9th March

Don't forget to reserve 7.00 pm on the 9th March in your diary.  The AGM night is also free to members, so there will be no need to bring your £2 along.  Among the key items to be discussed are:

  1. Adoption of the New Constitution.  We need to update the Club Rules so that they are more in line with EBU recommendations.  The proposed constitution is already here on the website, and I will forward a softcopy to every member for whom I have an email address.  We need a simple majority on the evening to get the constitution adopted, but there will not be time to go through each clause.  So if you have any concerns or suggestions or questions, please let the Chairman know today.
  2. Increase in Table Money Prices.  The Club has been charging members £2 an evening for a very long time -- certainly since I joined in 1997 -- but our costs have been increasing.  Now is the time -- i.e. from the date of the AGM onwards -- regrettably, to put up the prices -- to £3 for members and £5 for visitors (to encourage them to join).

As at every AGM, nominations are welcome for every committee post and officer position -- i.e. Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary -- but this year all current incumbents are happy to stay in their post if no challenger comes forward.  And if anyone wants to propose a substantive motion for the AGM, please let the Secretary know soon.


100 members and counting

The Club's membership has now reached its highest level for several years.  As there are justified concerns about noise levels in the room when we have more than 15 tables, we would like to put a ceiling on the membership.  We will soon reinstate the Waiting List for prospective new members.  So if anyone is thinking about joining, or any member letting their membership lapse, now is the time to act before the Waiting List is activated. 

Member Subscriptions Now Due

Subscriptions are now due for 2015. You can pay your £10 fee to David Rotherham in two forms: by cash or cheque made out to 'Claygate Bridge Club'. 

  • Cheques can be posted to David at 70, Collingwood Crescent, Guildford, Surrey, GU1 2PF, or handed to him at the club.
  • Cash can only be handed to David at the club, not posted.
  • Please pay promptly. Too many bruises and broken limbs have been sustained in previous years by members who thwarted the Treasurer.

​Many thanks



Meets every Monday (Bank Holidays excepted) at 7.30 pm

at Claygate Day Centre, Elm Road, Claygate.

Tel: 01372 463476    Map
