Our 50th Birthday Celebrations

Goring and Streatley Bridge Club was founded in 1967.  To mark the 50th anniversary of the club, we will be holding a variety of events throughout 2017 – some for experienced players and some for people thinking of joining a bridge club for the first time.

Our first event is an evening led by the world-famous bridge player, Andrew Robson.  As well as being an outstanding professional bridge player, Andrew is the bridge columnist for The Times and an excellent teacher – in high demand at his thriving bridge club in London.  Andrew was a joint winner of the English Bridge Union player of the year competition in 2015-2016.

At 7pm on Monday 23rd January 2017 in Goring Village Hall, Andrew will be giving some top tips on bidding and play – with example hands for every-one to try.  Topics will include Suit Establishment in Trump Contacts and the Take-Out Double.

This event is now sold out.  Hopefully Andrew will be back next year.  Further events to celecbrate our anniversary this year are being arranged and details will be posted here.

teams of 8 - a winning run

The bridge club has entered a team of 8 in the Chiltern Bridge League. The team won its latest match beating Newbury A by 9-3, and has retained its position at the top of the league with 3 consecutive wins.

About Our Club
About Our Club

Goring & Streatley Bridge Club is a small and friendly club that meets once a week to play competitive (ie duplicate) bridge. We normally have about 12 tables each time we meet and play in Goring Village Hall on most Mondays in the year. We start playing at 7.30pm and aim to finish by 10.30pm, having played 24 hands. Our players mostly come from the twin villages of Goring and Streatley, and from the neighbouring towns and villages such as Pangbourne, Upper Basildon, Whitchurch and Wallingford.

We welcome visitors at any time of the year, and, in summer, we are particularly pleased to see bridge players who are enjoying a boating holiday on the River Thames. Goring Village Hall is situated 100 yards from the River Thames that separates the villages of Goring and Streatley in the picturesque Goring Gap (see picture above). If you do intend to pay us a visit please let the club secretary know beforehand. The club secretary's telephone number is published on the 'Committee' page on this website.
