Welcome to Bridge At Crockham Hill - BACH

Hi All

There are new Data Protection requirements which come into effect on 25th May. The Club is working towards ensuring we meet the relevant criteria. As part of the requirements we must inform you what data we hold and how we use it.

Please click on link below to see this.





Hello and welcome to Bridge At Crockham Hill.


We meet every Monday (except Bank Holidays) @ 7.30pm and have both beginners and intermediate sections playing in a friendly atmosphere. 

Additional details can be found on the "Visitors & Information" tab on the left side of this page We are not affiliated to the EBU and do not issue Masterpoints.

c50% of the table money is donated to the Myeloma charity in memory of Tony Gifford. Last year we donated £4,000 and this year we have donated £4,000 making £13,000 in the last 3 years.


Our ethos is that bridge should

Be Amicable Courteous and Harmonious. smiley

Thank You from Wynne

Tony would have been so thrilled to see BACH twenty years on and so many bridge players enjoying their game and each other's company.  He so much wanted me to continue what he'd started, but I couldn't, alone, have managed to do it.
The success of Bridge at Crockham Hill today is a tribute to the team efforts of:-
Amanda and Irene for overseeing the setting up of the hall and monitoring the signing-in book
Sue for taking on organising you throughout the evening
Ian for looking after the money and for organising the boards and the scoring
Val and Hazel for making sure tea, coffee and lovely biscuits are available and making sure kitchen is left clean and tidy - however, you are still responsible for your own washing up and putting away!! Hazel's tea towels are for general use!!
Steve for seeing everyone off the premises and locking up
Pam for her tireless efforts to keep the red section going to encourage less experienced players to join in and - hopefully - move into the main section.
And I nearly forgot Reg, without whose expertise you wouldn't have this wonderful website where you can book in, view last night's results, trawl through past records, study all sort of statistics ...
My role in this well-oiled machine is simply to be on stand-by on Monday evenings to play with anyone who needs a partner, so please do come along as I always need one myself!
Thank you all for your support and remember what BACH stands for:-
Be Amicable Courteous Harmonious or Bridge And Company=Happiness!



We are 20 Years Young!!!!



20 YEARS AGO Tony had a vision.

The vision became a reality.

20 YEARS LATER The reality lives on

Some of you were there in the early days.

Many of us have benefited since.

Anniversary drinks at the Christmas Party, some original members returning and a free night.

Date 18th Dec.............................wink

Tandridge Heights Bridge

Mirella, the Activity Organiser at Tandridge Heights, has asked if there are any bridge players who would be willing to give occasional time to go up to TH to play bridge with some of the residents - afternoons after 2.30 preferred - but happy to accommodate.
