We look forward to seeing you.
Registered charity number 1165095
Due to hall being used for European Elections.
We are a small friendly club with currently approximately 85 members and have been granted charitable status.
We play duplicate bridge every Tuesday and Thursday evenings (7.15 pm for 7.30 pm, finishing at about 10.30 pm).
We usually have up to 9 tables each evening, and EBU Masterpoints are awarded to the highest placed players.
We play with computer dealt boards and use Bridgemate scoring equipment.
Visitors are always welcome and we have a spare partner on most evenings so if you want to come without a partner you can usually be assured of being able to play.
However, we recommend that you contact us in advance (01306 884242) so that we know to expect you.
As you all know, Sam our Chairman is moving onto pastures new.
He was not just Chairman, but he helped the club in so many other ways.
As a thank you, Sheena presented a bottle and a card to him signed by many members.
He said that he had greatly enjoyed his time with the club and that finding a local club as good as ours will be a priority.

So with this result we will use in the future:

Boards per round
Boards in play
No. of rounds

The Committee and Directors will continue to monitor the situation and will be open to members’ views and the performance of the movements so please provide feedback.
The complete bridge movement table is:
