WELCOME TO THE MAIDSTONE BRIDGE CLUB WEBSITE

Maidstone Bridge Club has three sessions of Bridge each week:

Tuesday in the Club Committee Room at the Bearsted and Thurnham Club opposite Bearsted Green;
Wednesday and Thursday at the Civil Service Club, Recreation Close, Maidstone ME14 5AZ near junction 7 of the M20 Motorway.


Tuesday (at Bearsted) is for improving players. 7pm start.  [Please note that the committee room is upstairs and may not be suitable for some disabled players]  You are permitted to purchase drinks at the club bar and coffee is available in the bridge room.    Parking - on road (off peak) or at the rear.  Guests are welcome but we have no host available, so if you do not have a partner please check beforehand (see our contact page)

Wednesday (at Civil Service Club) is for beginners and the less confident players with help available throughout the evening and a partner guaranteed for your first few sessions if you come on your own.  Start time is 7.15pm.   Free tea/coffee available as well as use of the club bar.   Play normally finished around 10.15pm.   20/22 boards are usually played.

Thursday (at Civil Service Club) is for more experienced players.   Start time is 7.15pm.   The first Thursday of each month is a teams event.  Guests are welcome but we have no host available, so if you do not have a partner please check beforehand (see our contact page).   Free tea/coffee available as well as use of the club bar.  24/27 boards are usually played.

Parking at the Civil Service Club is at the rear of the building (large car park) and enter the function room by way of the ramp and side door.   Access is also possible by the side door although there are a few steps.   Those with mobility issues can park near the side door.

The Club is EBU affiliated and operates the Pay to Play system.
Master Points are awarded at all sessions, including Wednesdays.

Duplimate hands and bridgemates are used

The Annual Membership is £12 with a reduced pro rata fee available for new members joining later in the year.

HOST SYSTEM on WEDNESDAYS

Would members please be aware that the Host system on Wednesdays is there to provide a partner in the event that your regular "partner" is not available to play or to ensure a newcomer will get a game.  It is NOT there so that you can turn up every week without a partner and expect to "get a game".

Our Club rules work on the assumption that after three weeks you should have managed to find someone to play with on a regular basis, as a regular partnership brings long term benefits and particularly a greater understanding of the game.

Whilst we have not yet turned people away for "abusing" the Host system we will enforce the practise if necessary.  If players turn up regularly without a partner our host will not be available to you and you will need to find another player that night who is also "without".
