25-year partnership
25-year partnership

In September Robin Schlick surprised bridge partner Jasmine Knew by bringing bottles of bubbly to the club so that members could celebrate their 25-year bridge partnership.  Chairman Ruth Bray had made a celebratory cake too.  Congratulations to Jasmine and Robin!

Welcome to the website of Rutland Duplicate Bridge Club. We are a small (but growing!) and friendly club meeting every Thursday evening at the Oakham C of E Primary School in Burley Road, Oakham, Rutland. Our usual attendance is now about 7 to 9 tables. We play duplicate pairs,  and  every so often we participate in Simultaneous Pairs competitions. We are affiliated to the English Bridge Union and the Leicestershire CBA
