Welcome to Doncaster Bridge Club
Welcome

♠ 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.

Fire evacuation procedure

In early August representatives of AXA Insurance are to visit the Club. Part of their brief is to investigate the procedures that are used in the case of a fire occurring within the building. It is necessary to re-emphasise to members that the following protocols take place. In the case of a fire upstairs, the lift is not to be used. Members will leave this floor from the fire door (adjacent to the kitchen area) via the metal staircase  that leads down to the car park. Dependent on cirumstances, a passage to the front door via the main staircase is another escape route.  If a fire occurs in the downstairs area then members will leave either through the back or front door or through the Fire door in the large downstairs playing area. In either scenario, it is imperative that members congregate outside the Club by the back gate where their presence will be recorded by a Director. These procedures will continue  to be transmitted to all visiting teams/players (e.g. Yorkshire League) at the beginning of each competition.
