Welcome to the web site of Taverham Bridge Club. We play duplicate bridge on Monday evenings at the Hellesdon Community Centre. We start at 7.00 and request that pairs are at their tables just after 6.45. We welcome guests and new members at any time, but ask that guests play with a member if the evening is a "Sim Pairs". There are six of these events throughout the year.
There is good parking at the venue..
We strive to provide a friendly atmosphere and to cater for novices as well as more experienced players.
Please note that from now on we will playing at the Hellesdon Community Centre, meeting at 6.45 for a start time of 7pm.
The postcode is NR6 5SR
Directions to Hellesdon Community Centre NR6 5SR
Although the address of the Centre is Middletons Lane, you cannot access it from Middletons Lane (although, via the one way system you do exit on to it). From Middleton’s Lane, when you get to the roundabout with The Chestnut Tree pub, turn on to the Reepham Rd in the direction away from Norwich. Take the first turning to the left, Wood View Road. Then look for a sign post on your left to Hellesdon Community Centre, down a narrow drive which leads to the Centre and car park.
There is no bridge next week as the centre is closed for Bank Holiday.
We look forward to a good turn out on 3 June, which is the Dereham/Swaffham Trophy which we are hosting for Norfolk Bridge

Here, for anyone interested, is an article about probabilities of card distribution.
When you are missing 4 trumps, how likely is it that they will be split 2 - 2?
When did you last get dealt a hand with 13 cards in one suit? How long might you have to wait until it happens again?
Normal Club Pairs except as shown below.
Please note that it was agreed at the AGM that table money for SIM pairs events will now be £6.
