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.

Dave Brooksbank R.I.P.
Dave Brooksbank R.I.P.

It is with deep sorrow that the club announces that our much respected member Dave Brooksbank has died. Dave was a very good bridge player. At the Annual Awards ceremonies, he regularly gained many prize-winning certificates, yet he was very modest about his undoubted ability. He successfully represented the Club on numerous occasions in the YCBA League. Many members will be expressing fond memories of Dave who, when playing the game, brought harmony and sincerity to the table. Dave was very loyal to the Club and often attended, and enjoyed, the social events provided. We will sorely miss Dave and do offer genuine condolences to his family, and to all his regular partners and friends. Further information will be displayed once the Funeral arrangements are announced by the family.
