Welcome to Hutton Bridge Club
Club Introduction
Club Introduction

The club meets at 19:30 every Monday and Wednesday (public holidays excepted) in the reception area of:-

Becket Keys School (formerly Sawyer's Hall College)
Sawyer's Hall Lane
Brentwood
Essex CM15 9DA.

See the "Information" page for directions: please take care using the postcode on your SatNav as it may take you on a wild goose chase up the Ongar Road.  

We are a friendly medium-sized club and are very welcoming of guests or visitors on all occasions. As well as the weekly club duplicate we host special events such as the Club Championship, Spring Individual, EBU and Charitable Simultaneous Pairs, and a Christmas party. The first Wednesday session of each month is known as 'Friendly First Wednesday' and is especially suited to newcomers.

The club fields teams in all the major Essex and some national competitions and has been known to do well, please follow the menu buttons on the left for more information.

If you wish to play but need a partner please contact John Rayment via email or 07454 745438 and we will do our very best to accommodate you.

Hutton get social again

Ten members and a couple of guests can be seen enjoying a splendid (if rather slow!) Indian meal together on 7th October in Brentwood during which a thoroughly good time was had by all!

But what did we learn?

Well, some of us drink a lot more when left without food for longer than is really reasonable and quorn is a real thing you can actually eat - who knew?!?

The editor notes that perhaps eating such oddities may make him a better bridge player..... or slimmer.....

Please be aware that if you belong to this bridge club then you, your partner or your friends are most welcome to join us during these pleasurable informal evenings.

 

Hutton retain Club Pairs!!!

On Sunday 4th June Coral Fallon and Jon Ward won the Club Pairs with the 3rd place slot going to Theo Todman and Colin Scott scoring 63.74% & 61.25% respectively.

This placed Hutton comfortably top of the clubs to become the winning club for the 2nd year running, we have also provided the winning individual pair for 4 of the last 5 years!

Well done to all our pairs taking part and especially those mentioned above, click here to see your club at the top.

Please let a member of the committee or support team know if you would be willing to represent the club in inter-club or county events, we enter teams and pairs at all levels.

Mentoring a success!

The club’s first mentoring session was held last Friday and found to be very well received. Many thanks to David Warren who gave up his time to explain the use of a couple of useful conventions to attendees as well as some etiquette.
