Please let me know of any inaccuracies in the information presented (as records aren't always complete) - Thank you, Peter Sykes (Chair).

 
Welcome to Durham Bridge Club
Durham Bridge Club

Welcome to our website. Durham Bridge Club is a friendly club that meets on a regular basis to play duplicate bridge, usually pairs, but occasionally teams. Visiting pairs are always welcome to any session.

  • Tuesday evenings at 7:00 - 10:00pm: Standard 'level 4' conventions are permitted. The overall 'NGS' rating of players is about 55 (above average).
  • Tuesday Afternoons from 1:15 - 4:15pm:  a host system operates (no partner is necessary). There is an 'Open' section and when required a 'No fear' section. This session is popular with players with less experience, but all are welcome.
  • Monday evenings at 7.00 - 10.00pm: a supervised session  - ideal for novices wanting instruction in a 'real-life' environment or for players new to duplicate bridge.
  • Please ensure that you are seated at least 10 minutes before play is due to start.
  • Results of each Tuesday session are available immediately all hands have been played - and usually there are printed hand records.
  • The club meets at Framwellgate Moor Youth & Community Centre, Front Street, Framwellgate Moor, Durham, DH1 5BL.
  • Want to learn to play? The club usually runs a structured training course in the autumn.
Changes to Laws of Bridge

The Laws of Bridge have changed and the EBU will start using the new laws from August 2017. For those who would like to read the complete set of laws there is a link to them on the NEBA's website news page. John Portwood has produced an explanation of some of the more relevant changes.

Notes for Directors

For those interested in how changes in the new laws have impacted on rectifications that Directors will now implement, a further PDF is available - Click Here to download. This has also been produced by John Portwood and is not 100% guaranteed to be correct.
