Electronic Scoring

 We are now using Electronic Scoring (BridgeTabs) at the club. Please arrive no later than 7pm so that we can arrange a movement, and have your EBU number to hand as that will speed up the process.  

Enjoy duplicate bridge in a friendly club

♠  ♣  Formed in 1992, NBC is now a well-established, friendly, EBU-affiliated club which plays at Weoley Castle WMC where we use the club's concert room and its ample off-road parking facilities.

There is a one-off joining fee of £10 with an annual membership of £8. Table money, which includes a refreshments charge, is just £2.50 for members and non-members alike, but non-members may expect to be asked to pay a £1 entrance fee to WMC. Members are also obliged to join the WMC but the charge for this is met from NBC resources

We meet each Monday and Thursday evening and ask members to arrive no later than 7.00 pm to be ready for a 7.15 pm start. Generally, the bridge is less competitive at our Monday sessions but on both days we are currently seeing between ten and fourteen tables in play.

We both welcome and encourage players who want to try playing at a bridge club for the first time and our membership ranges all the way from novices to a Grand Master.

We run a host system on most Thurday nights so that we are able to offer to un-partnered visitors someone with whom they may play. Please check the calendar for details.  If you would like to play with host, please arrive at the club by 6.50pm in order for players to be paired up prior to the start of play.  You may use the 'Host' system up to six times in any rolling year. 

We run a 'partner finder' service via Pianola. Please contact Sarah Smith on 0121 472 2467 or David Motley on 0121 476 4099 if you would like to learn more about this. ♠  ♣
