JUNIOR BRIDGE
JUNIOR BRIDGE
Following the outstanding success and fun of our junior bridge session last half-term we are delighted to announce more junior summer bridge sessions. They will be held at the club on Monday mornings (10am-12pm) on 24th, 31st July, 7th, 14th and 21st August. So all parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins bring your young family members and introduce them to the wonderful game of bridge. We are writing to local schools and we hope that we will be joined by others. Please book by clicking on this article

We have several courses running through the year. They range from complete Beginners to Intermediate as well as  Refresher courses in play, defence and bidding.  Beginner courses cost £150.00 a term and there are 4 terms involved.  Other courses and cost can be found under Learn Bridge. We intend starting several courses in September.If you are interested in any course click here: Register Interest in Learning 

WELCOME TO RICHMOND BRIDGE CLUB
WELCOME TO RICHMOND BRIDGE CLUB

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. Th club also offers  lessons for players of all standards. 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.

I am  delighted to tell you that, that for the 7th year in succession  we  are again the best attended affiliated club in the country. (2010-2016). 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.
