Friendly Partnership Duplicate Bridge in Camden  London NW1 Friday Evenings 7.15pm

The Ruff Club is a friendly club for playing duplicate bridge close to central London. We meet every Friday at the St. Pancras Community Centre, 30 Camden Street, London, NW1 0LG.  The Centre is a short walk from Mornington Crescent or Camden Town underground stations (Northern Line) and there is reasonable on-street parking in the evenings.

New players and visitors to London are always welcome; partners are guaranteed for single players.

We play a full 24 board duplicate game with instant scoring using the electronic Bridgemate scoring system. Results posted promptly to this website.

Our start time is 7.15pm and we aim to finish by 10.40pm or a little before. Table money £6.00 per player. Look at the information link on this page to find out more.

Wednesday Night Bridge in Holland Park

While Friday remains the main night at the Ruff Club we are also now running a secondary game on Wednesday evenings.  This is at a pub called The Academy.  This is in Holland Park (57 Princedale Road, W11 4NP), a short(ish) walk from the Central Line tube station. We play duplicate bridge starting at 7.30pm but play only until approx 10pm, playing 15-18 boards at a fairly relaxed pace. Kit Jackson is the host and is available as a fount of wisdom that can be tapped for impartial advice.  Food is available at the pub so you can have supper during the evening as well.

Single players are always welcome and we especially like to include players who may not have played much (or any!) duplicate before. All necessary support will be available.  Bridge fee is £8.  No need to pre-book - everyone is guaranteed a game.

Scores from 2013 have been rolled forward to 2014 in full, but new handicaps have been applied to those who have already won. This makes it more challenging to win again. For your first wi your 'Victory Handicap' is 100pts for the first win and for each subsequent win a further 200pts handicap will apply.
