Phone Number

We now have a phone for members to use if they are going to be late arriving for an evening's bridge. It will be available from about 7.00 - 7.30pm on the night only.

The number is 07772758624

St Albans Bridge Club

In light of the increase in the number of Teams the Committee have decided to run a three month trial.  For October-December the Multiple Teams format will be replaced by Swiss Teams with an external, non-playing Director.  Swiss Teams is the primary format used at major congresses for large numbers of teams and we hope all members will enjoy a competition rarely available in midweek club sessions.  Results will count towards the annual club Teams Ladder and other competitions. To cover the significantly higher expenses, members' fees, for Swiss Teams nights only, will be £3.50 per person and non-members £5.  We will review member feedback on the new format early in the New Year ahead of the AGM.

HBA Team representatives

We are delighted to announce the following representative club teams in the forthcoming HBA events:

Desmond Flockhart Trophy: John Mathews & Susan Dow, Stan & Tara Harding, Harry Silverman & Sara Barnett, Denis King & James Rogers

Enteries for the Cadet Pairs & Teams will be finalised after the qualifying heats.

Good luck to all.

Starting Times

It is difficult for directors and scorers to set the movement and to arrange the room if members turn up on the dot of 7.30. So can I ask you all to be there and seated by 7.20 (at least one player per pair) please? It might be that in the long run we will have to have a cut off time of 7.25/7.20 for participation in an evening's session.

I would also like to remind you that we do not have mobile phones on and in use in the hall during the evening, so please turn them off / on silent during the evening.

Thank you for your cooperation in this.

Welcome - no partner needed
Welcome - no partner needed

Welcome to the website of The St Albans Duplicate Bridge Club where we play competitive bridge to a good standard in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

You can come along either as a pair or without a partner as we operate a highly successful duty officer scheme. This scheme runs every week except for the regular teams competition which is held on the second Monday of every month - but please do bring your own team for these events if you wish!

There is ample parking and free tea, coffee and biscuits!

We look forward to meeting you and you don't need to contact us first - just turn up! (Before 7.20 pm please!)
