Grishams, Pattersons, Trollopes, Archers Ahoy!

Did you know that you can donate your no longer wanted books to a good cause.  

Funds raised by the recycling book table go towards helping to buy new equipment (you may have noticed some strange black rectangular boxes that have appeared on the walls in the last couple of weeks, these are for a new TV timer, results, forthcoming events service) and other Special Projects within the Club.

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

Licensed to Kill Duo Win August Sim Pairs

Well done to Allan & Margaret Bond who won the August Swiss Pairs at the Club on Monday 3rd August.

The full ranking list can be found in the results section.

Member's successes in external competitions updated 0710

From January 2012 we began recording Members Successes in External Competitions on this Website, so if you did well in an EBU, WCBA or holiday bridge event please email or let Nick Woosnam have the details for inclusion in the roll of honour which can be accessed from the left hand menu or by clicking here.

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 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.

Based at: THE SUTTON COLDFIELD RUGBY CLUB.

Our Club Secretary is Charlene Dyer on 07773905098 or you can email suttoncbc@hotmail.co.uk with your query or you can leave a message on our message board via the left hand menu.
