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.

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.

The Italian Job!

 

Several members ventured to the splendid Piero's Restaurant in Ingatestone for an Italian meal on the evening of Saturday 27th May to enjoy some time with Eric prior to his move away from the area.

Eric can be seen in the photo bottom left prior to his 'happier' state, enough good food and wine can send us all to our 'happier' state and we sincererly hope this is a conditition Eric finds himself in after his move on a frequent basis.

Bon Amis prevailed as bridge foes became bridge friends and a thoroughly enjoyable evening was had by all. Perhaps the disco afterwards was a miss-step, the editor notes his disco days are behind him. Note to Nick: your choice of after meal drinks venue was correct!

Another outting will be arranged for the end of the summer!

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.

Ad-hoc mentoring sessions are free of charge to club members who regularly play during our Friendly First Wednesday nights, please let Tony know if you have an interest in attending or sharing your experience with newer members.
