This year as the club is a registered charity we will use funds to teach and promote junior bridge. We are keen to ensure that this great game continues to be played in the future and the club's charitable status will hopefully allow us to get teachers into local schools and teach children at the club for a nominal charge.
We have various courses starting a different times of the year. Our Beginners course covers 3 terms with a 4th highly recomended. The cost of each term is £160.00 which includes a book and two vouchers to eneable you to attend Supervised Play when you are ready. We also run Refreshers Courses , Intermediate Courses and Advanced Course. Dates and times will be published when available. If you are interested in any of these please click on Register Interest in Learning and we will be in touch.
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.

Richmond Bridge Club in association with BridgeLife are pleased to announce our first bridge holiday abroad!
We are going to the beautiful city of Varna, Bulgaria at the beginning of September when the weather is normally a very pleasant 18-26 °C.This holiday is tailored for all bridge players, however, the most important thing is to have a pleasant time in a not too competitive environment. No partner is neccessary.
BridgeLife's founder is our guest teacher and international player Stefan Skorchev. He has experience running bridge holidays for the Acol Bridge Club and ran a similar holiday to Varna in September last year. Pictures can be found here. Accompanying Stefan on this trip will be our popular teacher James Thrower.
Stefan & James will be running a series of seminars aimed at improving your game and will be at your disposal to discuss hands on this trip.
Costs sharing a double/twin room £580 per person. Double room for single occupancy £750 per person. Sharing a junior suite £750 per person. (Flights not included) Full details will be sent out on Email shortly however at this stage we are gauging interest. Could you please click here and register your interest if you would like to go on this wonderful holiday.
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.
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.
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.
