Partners

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

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 14 nationally in 2017/8 by the EBU.( Up 3 )

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 Best Behaviour 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.

  ♣   The Thursday supervised play session  is open to players with less than 200 points.( 2pmThis session is intended for players who are new to the game and are learning, so that help is available.
