Welcome to Doncaster Bridge Club

♠ Welcome to Doncaster Bridge Club's website ♠ 

♠ ♥♦ ♣  

We welcome all bridge players to our warm and comfortable premises. Parking is available at the rear of the club accessed via the Doncaster Sports Club entrance.

We run duplicate bridge sessions most afternoons and evenings. See "Where and when" under the "Information" tab on the left.

Our club is a private members' club providing extensive facilities for its members and visitors. These include a well-stocked bar and soft-drink refreshments.

Our facilities also include disabled access via a ramp at the rear of the club and inside, a lift connecting the downstairs playing and social areas of the club to the upstairs playing area and kitchen facilities. Toilets (including toilets for the disabled) are situated on both floors of our premises.

We look forward to welcoming you to our club to join in and play our favourite card game. We also welcome enquiries from players looking for a 'half-way house' so that teams do not have to travel so far when needing to play that all important NICKO or other competition match.

Bridgemate Review

At the Tables, members have adapted quickly when inputting information onto the new Bridgemate Scoring Handsets. EBU number of each of the four players starting at a Table has been inserted into the handset at the commencement of play.  It is also important to input the Lead Card before a particular board is played. On the upstairs notice board, a list of EBU numbers is available for those few individuals who have forgotten their number.

Car Parking Update

The Sports club has informed the committee that, starting on Tuesday  May 7th work will be carried out to replace the Astroturf on the playing pitches behind the Club. A compound will be established next to the entrance to the pitch and there will be some contractor traffic. For the afternoon sessions parking opportunities will increase as the sixth form students who use the facility will be attending the school less and less as their examination programme decreases. For the evening sessions it may be necessary for members arrive earlier than usual as the number of parking spaces may be reduced during this short period.
