Bridge resumes 4th September.


Goring Heath Bridge Club

Goring Heath Bridge Club is small, friendly and meets on Tuesday evenings to play about 18 -22 hands of Duplicate Contract Bridge in a relaxed and easy going setting. At present we play at the Community Hall in Goring-on -Thames. Goring is located between the Berkshire Downs and the Chilterns of South Oxfordshire. The club benefits from comfortable and convenient ground floor premises with plenty of free parking adjoining the entrance. Visitors and new members are welcome but are requested to telephone first to ensure that space and if necessary, a partner will be available (see information page). Regular players at the club come from nearby villages but also from the towns of Wallingford, Henley-on-Thames and Reading.

The Club's name derives from its former location in the nearby Chiltern hamlet of Goring Heath. 



General Information
General Information

Bridge is an extremely enjoyable game. Courteous behaviour is an exceptionally important part of that enjoyment. The EBU is committed to the principle of equality of opportunity. It considers it a fundamental principle that anyone wishing to participate in duplicate bridge, whether as player, official or in any other capacity, should be able to do so in a safe and welcoming environment, and not be subject to less favourable treatment on the grounds of gender, age, race, disability, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, religious or political belief or social class than any other person. 
This guide serves as a brief reminder of how to behave at the bridge table. We are sure that all players naturally follow this code of conduct but there are times when concentration and pressure can take their toll and it is for these situations that we issue this as a reminder. 

  • Greet others in a friendly manner prior to start of play on each round.
  • Be a good “host” or “guest” at the table.
  • Make your convention card readily available to your opponents and fill it out completely.
  • Make bridge enjoyable for yourself, partner and opponents.
  • Give credit when opponents make a good bid or play.
  • Take care of your personal grooming.
  • Ensure that your mobile phone is turned off.
  • Enjoy the company as well as the game. 

Remember that it is rude to criticise your partner or opponents in public, to be less than polite at the table, to gloat over good results or object to a call for the tournament director or to dispute or argue about a director’s ruling, or generally to make any personal and disparaging remark. 


Please call the Director if you think you may have been affected by bad behaviour.  You will be helping others as well as yourselves.


As in all games that are governed by rules and regulations, bad behaviour will be penalized ….
If a player at the table behaves in an unacceptable manner, the director should be called immediately.  Annoying behaviour, embarrassing remarks, or any other conduct which might interfere with the enjoyment of the game is specifically prohibited by Law 74A.  Law 91A gives the director the authority to assess disciplinary penalties.  This can include immediate disciplinary board penalties and may lead to disqualification from the current event. In addition any violation may result in a disciplinary hearing where player(s) future participation in tournaments will be considered.
