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, Saturday Evening 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.

We are delighted to welcome back to the club world champion Andrew Robson (OBE) on Thursday evening 2 March at 7.00pm.

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 - described as "entertaining, simple, brilliant" and much more over the years. You may be interested in knowing that our own star player Mike Bell is now part of Andrew's team of superstars.

The seminar will be "After Dustbin 1NT response, Using opposing bidding". 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.
