Wednesdays and Thursdays at Civil Service Club**, Recreation Close, Maidstone ME14 5AZ - 7.15pm start

The first Thursday of each month is a teams event. Host available on Wednesdays only.
Wednesdays are seen as a more relaxed session with 20/22 boards usually played. This is a competition evening and is not suitable for beginners who have little or no experience. Newcomers are requested to email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07986 989764 to discuss their level of play before attending or to find out about lessons.
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 £10 with a reduced pro rata fee available for new members joining later in the year.
TABLE MONEY IS £3 FOR MEMBERS; £3.50 FOR VISITORS
(additional costs on Simultaneous Pairs nights)
On Wednesdays, players are expected to make their own arrangements to play with a partner. The host system is available for players whose regular partner is unavailable for a week or two. Whilst we have not yet turned people away for 'abusing' the host system, we will enforce the practise if necessary. It is assumed that after three weeks, players will have found someone to play with on a regular basis, as regular partnerships bring long terms benefits and a greater understanding of the game.
It is with regret that we announce the passing away of Joyce Cooper.
Joyce was a long standing member of the bridge club and played regularly on a Wednesday evening until late in 2018, when she was unable to play due to illness. She passed away peacefully on 20th March.
Funeral arrangements will be published here as soon as they are to hand. It is Joyce's wish to have only garden flowers at her funeral as she was a keen gardener. Any donations should be made to Heart of Kent Hospice.
We send our condolences to Joyce's family and close friends.
In order to ensure a prompt start of play, would Wednesday players who are delayed please phone Fred on 07915 063726 or Marion on 07917 418967.
Any player who is late without phoning through may not be accommodated if the movement has been set up and/or play commenced.
