Book Table is Always There
Book Table is Always There

The SCBC book table is always a welcome home for your books that are ready for pastures new; so if you have any titles on your bookshelves gathering dust, did you know that you can donate your surplus books to a good cause.  

Funds raised by the recycling book table help towards buying new equipment for the Club, e.g. just before Xmas we matched Alka Handa's extremly kind offer in memory of Sunil with funds raised last year through the book table to fund new bidding boxes.

Books are eventually recycled to local Charity Shops so no book donation is ever really 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.

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.
