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.

As you probably already know, it's the club's AGM this Thursday, 26th April. Don't forget that it's a 7.15pm start this week, to give us time to play plenty of bridge after the AGM.
The Treasurer's Report and Accounts for 2018 have already been loaded up on the club website under Notices, so you have time to read and digest them before the meeting.
It's not often that a pair from Royston make it through to the finals of the HBA Championship Pairs. So congratulations to Saroj & Alan, who not only qualified but also scored over 50% in the two session event on Sunday against a very strong field.
The full results can be found on the HBA website in the usual way.
It's that time of year again! Starting on Thursday 19th April, the club will be asking you to renew your membership for the coming year by completing a Membership Application form and shelling out the annual fee of £5.
Membership forms will be available at the club, or can be found on the club website under Documents or via this link.
You will see that the form has four boxes for you to tick, and the club hopes you will be happy to tick all four. However, the choice is yours, ensuring that the club conforms to the privacy legislation that will come into force next month, which will impact all organisations, large and small.
If you need further clarification or reassurance, read the club's Privacy Notice which is also available under Documents, or via this link.
The club is proposing to change the Bridgemate options so that the opening lead is entered at the Bridgemate along with the other contract information. This will be trialled for a few weeks followed by a quick vote on the proposal with a show of hands, at the club's AGM on 26th April.
Full details can be found in Bridgemate Proposal under Documents on the website menu to the left, or by clicking anywhere here. Give it a quick read before Thursday if you're planning to play at the club this week.
Note especially the advice that the best time to enter the contract details (including the lead) is during the period when the lead is being made and dummy is being put down. This minimises the elapsed time taken to score the board (regardless of whether the lead is being captured or not).
Another popular competition run by Hitchin Bridge Club is coming up, this time a Swiss Pairs event. Click here for further details.
And if you want to know how Swiss Pairs works for bridge, just Google "bridge swiss pairs".
