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
About the Club

We play on Monday and Friday Afternoon and Wednesday and Thursday Evening.

The ideal session for starting at the Club is Wednesday Evening when we play Simple System and guarantee a partner.

The first Sunday of the month we play a social teams event plus a sandwich and cakes tea. To enable us to provide sufficient catering please book in advance.

Thursdays

The Club wish to increase attendance at the Thursday Evening Session.

The allowed systems are the same as for a Monday and Friday Afternoon Session.

There is very rarely a directors call and the director is either Peter or Ian.

You need to come as a pair as we do not have a standby. However if you would like

to call Peter on 01273 507919 he will try to find you a compatable partner. Also if

you would like to be called when someone is seeking a partner on Thursday please let Peter know. Please give Thursday a try you will soon become a regular attender.

TOP CLUB

The Club has risen one place to 34 of the most attended bridge clubs in the Country. We are the most attended Sussex Club which does not have dedicated premises.

If you take into consideration Ian Macgregors Club it is clear that Patcham Community Centre is the place to play your bridge.
