Book Table Accepting New Items
Book Table Accepting New Items

Please remember that if you are having a Spring Clean you can donate your no longer wanted books to the Club's Book Table.  

Funds raised go towards helping to buy new equipment and Special Projects within the Club, with books eventually being recycled to local Charity Shops.


Please arrive at least 10 minutes before start time
Please arrive at least 10 minutes before start time

The TDs request that players should make every effort to arrive at the Club at least 10 minutes before the advertised start time. 

As BridgeMates are in use for nearly all sessions it is time consuming and tiresome to reset everything to ensure a prompt start if players are arriving late. This is particularly so on busy nights such as Monday and Thursday when adequate time should be allowed by players for car parking.

Complaints are received about late evening finishes and incomplete hence unfair movements which a prompt start would somewhat alleviate.

The club's mobile telephone number 07749 410 362 is always switched on about half an hour before play is due to start if you want to notify late arrival.

Players who arrive after the movement has been set up without prior notification in most cases will not get a game!!!

 


The Clubhouse
The Clubhouse

We have two large recently refurbished well-lit playing areas, one of which is equipped for teaching, the rooms both enjoy views across playing fields.

Our club is located at 160 Walmley Road, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, B76 2QA.
