WELCOME TO RICHMOND BRIDGE CLUB
  • Bar

  • Large Playing Room
  • Small Playing Room

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, plus Saturday and Sunday afternoons, including lessons for all standards. Afternoon sessions start promptly at 1.25pm (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 35-36 tables.

ANDREW ROBSON
ANDREW ROBSON

We are delighted to welcome back to the club world champion Andrew Robson (OBE) on Thursday evening 3 March at 7.15pm. Andrew  is widely regarded as one of the finest bridge players/teachers/writers in the world. As a player, Andrew won the World Junior Championships in 1989, the European Championships in 1991, and the list of tournament successes  is too long to list. His teaching is also legendary - descibed as "entertaining, simple, brilliant" and much more over the years.

The seminar will be "Bidding Big Hands & the Cheat Seat". Please don't miss this chance to learn from the maestro. Click here to book. Payment will be taken on the day - members £20 each, visitors £25. Cost includes a glass of wine.

 

STUDENT'S VIDEO

I am sure some of you will remember a group of students at the club making a video about bridge as part of a short video project they were undertaking at college. Thanks to all who took part. I think as normal you have all come across as a very happy bunch. My thanks to Adam and his team for showing how lovely our club and its members are.

We hope we will have enough students to start Beginners courses after April. In addition we plan to run Intermediate 2 on Thursday morning's with Cathy Barley . Booking details for that will be advertised shortly
