We have long held occasional Sunday afternoon Swiss Pairs events, playing 48 boards, which are very popular and sold out in advance. As a result, we have now extended our range of "Swiss" events for the upcoming season, with regular once a month evening "cheese and wine" sessions (either Wednesdays or Fridays), starting on Wednesday, Aug 29th, playing 25 boards in 5 rounds. Wednesday has become a quiet night for the club and we hope this new format will inject some enthusiasm and of course generate better table numbers. As a special introductory offer table money will be as normal £6.00 Members and £9.00 Visitors. We will be playing 25 boards in 5 rounds and this alternative format will allow us more time to socialise and relax. As before it is our intention to ensure that for at least 2 rounds, you play your bridge against players of a similar standard. So don't allow yourself to be put off by the novelty or worry about being out of your depth. We are always looking for ways to make our events as exciting and different as possible to all of our members and their guests - so I do hope that you will try out this variation to our traditional duplicate session. Start time of 7.00 pm for nibbles with bridge starting promptly at 7.30pm. We hope to finish at just after 10.30pm. Please book to ensure we deal the correct number of boards. I would ask you to note that we are restricted to the large playing room so early booking is advised. We do hope that you will support this new event and it becomes a permanent fixture in our calendar. Please click here to book.
A wonderful seminar greatly enjoyed by all who attended the Doubles session on Saturday. I think this picture of Bernard, Rob & Liz illustrates the flavour of what was a very happy morning, Don't forget Bernard will be hosting a bridge weekend exclusively for Richmond members at Denham Grove on 25-27 January 2019. Bernard will be running the weekend and the seminars over the two days will be all about Slams (Identifying and bidding them) The cost will be £258 per person full board. Please telephone the Mr Bridge Office for any bookings or questions on 01483 489961. I am sure it will be a wonderful weekend. To look at the hotel please click on this link Denham Grove Rooms.
Richmond Bridge Club is housed in the old Bowling Club Pavilion in Cambridge Park, nestling between Richmond and Twickenham in South-West London. The Clubhouse and the Club are now dedicated solely to Bridge.
We offer a full range of duplicate bridge playing facilities from Monday to Friday, some Saturday Evenings and Sunday afternoons. The club also offers lessons for players of all standards to learn bridge as a beginner or to improve their bridge with various Refresher and Intermediate courses. Afternoon sessions start promptly at 1.45pm (start-time on Sundays is 2.30pm); in the evenings, play begins at 7.30pm. Special events are often held at weekends. The Club is affiliated to the Surrey County Bridge Association and the English Bridge Union.
Computer-dealt hands (with printed hand copies available after play) and the "Bridgemate" wireless scoring system (giving you instant results as you play) are used for all sessions.
The Clubhouse, extensively refurbished in 2002, is now probably one of the finest in Surrey and we can accommodate 34-35 tables.
You can now follow us on Social Media sites Facebook & Twitter

I am delighted to tell you that, that for the 8th year in succession we are again the best attended affiliated club in the country. (2011-2018). Please see EBU website for the list of clubs. It looks like we may be creating some sort of record so long may it continue. We know this would not be possible without the support of our incredibly loyal and wonderful members. We will continue to work as hard as possible to maintain the high level of service you so deserve.

We have adopted the EBU recomended Privacy Notice in preparation for General Data Protection Regulation.This can be read by clicking here and will be displayed on our notice board
We have introduced a new feature on the website to enable you to find a partner. Instructions were sent out to all members last week and can also be found by clicking here. These instructions are also displayed on the notice board at the club.
We have a new sign to help you know where to park in the Bowling Club. When you enter the car park and see this sign facing the entrance you know that you cannot park in that row. When not applicable we hope to turn it round so that the words are no longer showing as you come in but are facing the car park spaces themselves. Some of you have got confused by this. The sign ONLY APPLIES if you can see the words when you drive in to the car park.
All players should be seated at least 10 minutes before the session starts. Arriving late without warning is rude, and should be avoided if at all possible. If you are delayed en-route to a session, please be sure to call and tell us so that we may reserve space for you in the movement (or inform your waiting partner), otherwise you risk a wasted journey.
Please note we are now allowed to park in the bowling club car park week days from 7.00pm. We are keen to be good neighbours and if you use the car park you will leave more spaces for local residents. If you cannot park in the car park please park on the bowling club side of the road. Do not park on the residential side of the road or in Fairlawns (the small crescent on the left). We appreciate your help.
