Friendly Club

Patcham is a Friendly Club however it is affiliated to the English Bridge Club and has to play according to the Laws of Bridge. These Laws are Intenational. Failure to play to the Laws affects not only the result at your table but also the results of fellow competitors. It is not an unfriendly act to call the director, it is in fact the best action because done promptly and politely it can enable the issue to be resolved immediately without letting the issue linger on.

Being a friendly club is welcoming people to the table, being polite,socialising with them during the break and accepting everyone is different.

 
Welcome to PATCHAM BRIDGE CLUB

"I would like to thank all involved in making our annual visit so friendly and enjoyable. The bridge organisation went smoothly, thanks to Frances and Peter. Sadly some of the service left something to be desired and some aspects of the meal were not up to previous standards. Nonetheless I enjoyed the day and hope eveyone agree the value for money is outstanding. We will try to address those elements that were not OK for the future. Thank you for your support." Ivor
