We aim to have a host at every session to cater for people who need a partner. To do this, we need volunteers. Please enter your name onto the Programme at the Club, or contact Marcia Marriott at 07908 586260.
If you offer to host, you get a free game on the day (if you play) or the next time you attend. If no host is named for the session you want to attend, please be aware that if no other individuals turn up without a partner, you may not get a game.
FreeBriAn - the bridge scoring app - can be loaded onto your smartphone / ipad / android tablet and brings instant scores and analysis to your device after every hand.

We have received sad news. Margaret Stone, a much loved and popular member of our club, passed away on Friday 30th. November. She had been in hospital for a few weeks following radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment and died a few weeks later of an infection caught during her stay.
The funeral will be on Wednesday 19th December. Her family have sent the following message.
Margaret’s funeral will be at 11:45 on Wednesday the 19th December at West Norwood Crematorium followed by a reception at Dulwich and Sydenham Golf Club. Please arrive at 11:30 so that we can be seated quickly as the service is only 45 minutes and we are expecting a large number of guests. If there isn’t enough space in the chapel, we will be able to open the doors so that people can stand in the adjoining vestibule.
If you would like to make a small donation, in lieu of flowers in Margaret’s memory, we have set up a JustGiving page and all funds will go to The UK Sepsis Trust. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/margaretmstone
We would like to welcome everyone to attend but we would also like to keep track of numbers so that we can prepare for and manage the day as best we can. Please let us know if you will be attending and if you are bringing anyone with you. Please feel free to forward on the details to anyone we have missed but please also remind them to be in touch to let us know they will be attending.

The Salver is a pairs competition held over twelve months, normally on the first Monday of each month. On each evening, all pairs finishing above halfway score points depending on their position. For each pair, only the best six scores achieved during the year will count. Prizes awarded to the first three pairs.
The Goblet is an individual competition held over the year, January to the first half of December.
All match-pointed pairs events other than first Mondays or Club Championships count towards this On each evening, both players of each pair finishing above halfway score points according to their rank. The competition is designed to encourage members to mix and play with different partners. It is therefore based on a member's best ten scores, but no more than two scores count with any one partner. A member playing with a non-member is still eligible to score points.
Prizes: Awarded to members finishing in the top five positions.
The Monday Club is happy to be able to offer tuition thanks to one of its members, Kit Jackson.
