Two Events Left in 2016
Two Events Left in 2016

Your committee welcomes you to the Christmas & New Year period and invite you to events running up to the festive season

We have the traditional Christmas Party with bridge and a really easy (sic) quiz  which this year is an individual event on Thursday 15th December. Players are asked to bring a contribution of food for the shared table, no table money will be charged, simple system including transfers will be the order of play.

We have to admit to struggling to attact entries to our Friday Swiss Teams Event in 2016 but Friday 16th December is the last session this year. Please come along and support this initiative. We have relaxed the rules such that  the best six scores in 2016 count, to give players an incentive to come along.

The Calendar of Events for 2017 is in its final publication phase, please watch out on the Website and/or in the Club for a new programme of events to participate in in 2017.

Book Table Always Open to New Titles
Book Table Always Open to New Titles

We are always seeking new stock to rejuvenate the book table, so if you have any items on your bookshelves gathering dust, did you know that you can donate your no longer wanted books to a good cause.  

Funds raised by the recycling book table help towards buying new equipment for the Club.

Books are eventually recycled to local Charity Shops so no donation is wasted.

If you are an avid reader you may be lucky enough to pick up a bestseller or first edition for a mere 50p.

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

Your committee are still noticing that a small group of people are consistently ignoring our request that players should make every effort to arrive in the Club Room at least 10 minutes before the advertised start time. 

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

Complaints have been made about late finishes and incomplete unfair movements which a prompt start would 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.

Pairs who arrive after the movement has been set up without prior notification may unfortunately not get a game!!!

The Clubhouse
The Clubhouse

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

We have a bar, kitchen and plenty of parking spaces.

Pre-dealt boards with available hand records are used for all main bridge sessions along with PairsScorer,  BridgeMates and BridgeWebs technology enabling a fast end of session results service.

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