Our ♣ sparkles like a ♦, has a big ♥ and ♠♠♠ of bonhomie, boosted by beverage, biscuits, and banter before bridge begins.
Sessions held every Thursday at 7.30pm in the Market Hill Rooms, Fish Hill, Royston.
The club has electronic scoring and computer-dealt hands so results and deals are available straight away.
Visitors are always welcome but need to come with a partner. If you are new to the area, use Find a Partner (Public) and the club will make every effort to provide a suitable partner for you.

In a new initiative for the club, we are holding a charity event on Thursday 13th September on behalf of a local charity, Herts Young Homeless. More details of the event can be found under the Documents tab to the left, or simply click anywhere here.
The event will be a normal duplicate pairs event (so it will count towards the club's competitions in the usual way) and table money will be raised to £5 to help raise funds for this worthwhile cause.
We are also publicising the event at other local clubs, and hope that the event will attract new visitors to the club, some of whom will naturally want to come back for more once they discover what a friendly club we are.
At a recent committee meeting, the various Bridgemate options were reviewed and discussed, in particular the percentage display, the suppression of which seemed to be unpopular with some members.
It has been decided to reinstate the percentage display for a short trial period, so the Bridgemate will once again display the familiar message NS: 25% EW: 75% (or whatever) after each board has been scored.
The scorer at the table (typically North) should of course allow everyone at the table a chance to see these figures (or announce them clearly) before continuing with the next board or round.
This trail period will last for up to four weeks (depending on initial feedback), starting with Thursday's Pairs event on 16th August.
Other Bridgemate options, in particular the suppression of the traveller display to discourage time-consuming "post mortems" at the table, will remain unchanged. Any queries or concerns, just ask.
