Welcome to Nailsea Bridge Club website.  We hope that you find it both interesting and informative.

The club plays duplicate bridge once a week on Thursdays with random teams every last Thursday in the month if there is no half table. We are affiliated to the English Bridge Union (EBU) via the Somerset CBA. Hands are computer dealt (duplimated), enabling hand printouts and display on the website. The Club also takes part in SCBA, EBU and BGB events and, of course, master points are awarded for all events. Some of our players regularly do well in county competitions and occasionally at national level. Others just enjoy a pleasant evening's bridge.

As an affiliated club all our members are entitled to the benefits of EBU membership which you can read about here.

The club meets at Mizzymead Recreation Centre, Mizzymead Rise, Nailsea BS48 2JJ as social members at a cost of £13.50 per annum. Table money is £2.00 for members and £2.50 for visitors.

Play starts promptly at 7.15pm.

Visitors and prospective new members are always welcome. 

Recent Events

The club was well represented in the recent round of Western League matches versus Devon. Playing for the county C team Ann and Ken Bawdon had a good day with their team winning their match 15-5. Michael and Joe represented the B team but did not have such a good day and their team lost 15-5. But just one week later playing in the Cheltenham teams green point event Michael and Joe teamed up with Daphne and Norman Massey from Devon to finish a commendable 5th out of 56 teams. Indeed after the 5th round they led the field, but a poor penultimate round against the eventual runaway winners of the event dashed their hopes. Still for 5 rounds they played some excellent bridge, with the highlight being a succesful slam bid on relatively low level high card points. The hand is shown in the hand of the week section.  

Two Hands from 23 March 2017

I have written up some thoughts on a couple of hands from the evening of 23 March 2017.They can be found by clicking on the Hands of the Week tab. A couple of systemic conventions are mentioned, and if anyone wants to find out more please drop me an email to whittaker.family@blueyonder.co.uk.
