Partners

If you are seeking a partner(s) for pairs or teams either contact Alex Buchan (see Contact Us) or post a message on the 'Bookings/Find a Partner?'  page.

On Wednesday afternoon and evening  a host system is in operation, so you can turn up without a partner and get a game.

Welcome to Eastbourne Bridge Club
About Us

We welcome visitors and we have club members willing to help with finding partners, see the Join Us page. We run events to suit every level of player, and as we are an EBU club, Master Points are awarded at every event. On most Wednesday evenings and afternoons the club operates a hosting system so anyone is guaranteed a game, for other times see the Partners box on this page. The Calendar shows the host's name. Our popular Swiss Pairs are on the second and fourth Friday at 7.00 pm. Whilst our popular Random Teams operates on the 2nd Tuesday evening at 7.30. We run lessons for beginners and improvers, which have proved to be very popular - see the Lessons page. Because we can provide pre-dealt hands, the learning is mainly through playing.

We have a large membership and at least seven duplicate sessions each week. For details see our Calendar. By number of players playing, we were ranked number 1 in Sussex and number 17 nationally in 2017 by the EBU.

The Calendar gives the current program of events and start times. Please help us by arriving at least ten minutes before the start of play, since we use ScoreBridge and Bridgemates to record the scores and this has to be programmed with the movement before the start. Once this is started, it is difficult to amend. This computer based scoring enables us to provide results within minutes of the close of play.  

The Club Etiquette is in the Information section. Eastbourne Bridge Club Etiquette and Procedure.pdf

Our Location

We have two large comfortable air conditioned rooms that are set up for bridge. The Club is located on the first floor of the Royal Air Forces Association, 11 Wish Road, Eastbourne, BN21 4NX, see the map below for details.  A chair lift is available for those who need it. If using a satnav, check that you have 11 Wish Road.

As a result of the AGM, we have a new committee. They are listed in the information section and can be contacted in the Contact us section.

   The next Mini Swiss pairs is on Friday 8th September 2017 at 7.00 pm. and the next Random Teams is on Tuesday 8th August 2017 at 7.30 pm. Please sign up in the club for these events (just first names may not be enough unless yours is unique).  

   The Thursday supervised play session  is open to players with less than 200 points. The Friday supervised play session  is still open to players with less than 2000 points. Both sessions  are intended for players who are new to the game and are learning, so that help is available.  No partner needed for any of these sessions or the Tuesday Afternoon Simple Systems Session. 

♣  See the Links page for Vu-Bridge Hand of the Week and Beginner's Corner. You can play the hands - they are interactive.
