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 through Friday  plus Sunday including lessons for all standards. Afternoon sessions start promptly at 1.25pm (parking vouchers are obtainable from the Director); in the evenings, play commences at 7.30pm. Special Events are often held at week-ends at different times. 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 approx 35-36 tables. The lovely picture above was painted by John Rogers who was a club member for many years.

​Members will be sad to hear the news that long serving member Murray Steinberg passed away this morning. Murray had been nursing ill health following a fall some months ago. He appeared to be making a good recovery but sadly that was not to be. Newer members will not know what a great player Murray used to be and he was a regular at almost all of our sessions. In my first years at the club Murray could always be relied upon for help and support and he was always up ladders, changing bulbs, moving boxes and generally helping in any way he could. The club & I shall miss him greatly.

We are delighted to  have  been crowned for the fifth  year in a row (2010- 2014) the number 1 club in the recently published EBU list of best attended clubs in the UK. We are grateful to our members and our visitors whose attendance and support has made this accolade possible.  

SKYSPORTS NEWS

Those of you who were here  on the 28th April will have witnessed the club being visited by Sky Sport News and entering into the debate of whether Bridge should be classified as a sport. My thanks to all of the members who were involved. I think the club has come over in the most positive light. If you missed the recording please CLICK here and have a look, it really is splendid.
