LOUGHTON DUPLICATE BRIDGE CLUB
WELCOME TO LOUGHTON BRIDGE CLUB

Welcome to the LOUGHTON BRIDGE CLUB website.

We play a good standard of duplicate bridge on Monday and Wednesday evenings (7.20-10.30) and we operate a host system so you can turn up on your own (it's worth checking the calendar to make sure that there's a host though)..

We play at Oak View School, Whitehills Rd, Loughton, Essex, IG10 1TS on Mondays. From Loughton High Road, go up Traps Hill, left into Church Lane and right into Whitehills Road.

We play at the Grange Farm Centre, Grange Farm Lane, Chigwell IG7 6DP on Wednesdays. From Chigwell High Rd turn off the roundabout into the new housing estate (covered in hoardings) and keep going until you see the centre on your left.

We are affiliated to the Essex Contract bridge Association and the English Bridge Union.

KEEPING TO TIME

♠   ♣ 

To help achieve a timely (10.30) finish, play will start at 7.20 (not 7.30) so all players are requested to arrive by 7.10 and to be seated and ready to play by 7.20 pm prompt.  Also, we will use a timer on a regular basis.  This may mean that sometimes you will be asked not to play a hand if your table is behind, in the interest of maintaining progress towards a timely finish.  This isn't usually a criticism or a penalty (though you may be penalised if you're consistently slow) - it's just necessary to keep to time.

EBU 'Best Behaviour at Bridge' code
  • Greet others in a friendly manner prior to start of play
  • Be a good 'host' or 'guest' at the table
  • Ensure you have a completed convention card available
  • Make bridge enjoyable for you, 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. be less than polite at the table and gloat over good results.

Need a Partner?

At our club we like to encourage members and guests to come along to our evenings and play with someone new.

Many successful partnerships have been established this way.  Whilst we have a host system we are not always able to publish a name on the web site in advance.

Please don't let that put you off.  We often make up a whole table of single players.

There is a chance you may not get a game, if there is no named host but it's worth the risk, you may meet a friend for life.
