Table Money & Subscriptions

As from 1st January 2017 table money will be increased to £5 per person (£6 for a non-member) at both Tuesday and Friday sessions.  We hope that you'll still continue to come along and enjoy your bridge sessions on Tuesday and Friday afternoons.

Annual subscriptions of £5 became due 1 July.  Renewal forms can be obtained from the club.

Have we made a mistake?

Queries and appeals about possible errors should be made to the director responsible for the session by 5.00pm on Monday for Friday sessions and by 5.00pm on Thursday for Tuesday sessions.

Bridge Verse

 Frustrated bridge players have often resorted to verse - or worse - to relieve their feelings. "Goodbye to bridge" describes how we all feel on occasions. We all know how to bid and play - but stray from the path of righteousness all too often: "My way" warns partner of our frailties. "Slow play" is a director's lament - though Ros and Sandy have never gone as far as the director in the verse.

To read these well known offerings go to the "Bridge Verse" page via the menu

If anyone has any other interesting pieces of bridge verse, please do let us have them.

Berks & Bucks Events 2017
 

We meet on Tuesday afternoons in the Garden Room, and Friday afternoons in the Colston Hall at Gerrards Cross Memorial Centre from 1.30pm until about 4.30pm.

We pride ourselves on being a friendly and accessible club and visitors are most welcome. We operate a host system so you can be sure of a game if you come without a partner.  (This facility is available for a limited number of sessions in any one year and cannot be used on a regular weekly basis.)

Table money is £5 (£6 for non-members) including tea and biscuits.

We play computer generated hands and hand records are available to take away.
