CLUB CLOSED DEC 11th

Unfortunately we have decided to cancel tonight's event.  Whilst the major roads in St.Albans are drivable the minor ones are much more variable and the weather is forecast to freeze hard tonight.  Time to enjoy some mulled wine and a mince pie in front of the TV !  See you all next week.

Inaugural Butler Pairs Trophy July 2nd 2018

We are delighted to announced the addition of a new annual Trophy event to the club calendar with the launch of a Butler Pairs Tournament on Monday July 2nd 2018.  For those unfamiliar with the format, which is common in much of mainland Europe, the evening will look and feel like a normal Pairs night with a series of two board rounds played with one set of duplicated boards against different sets of opponents.  The key difference is that the scoring is effectively on a Teams basis with the size of the score achieved being important as opposed to the usual Matchpoint format where the aim is simply to do better than the other pairs holding your cards.  Games and Slams become more important, over tricks less important. A further explanation can be found on the link below.

We look forward to welcoming you to this new event.

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 7.25 pm please!)
