The Bridge Clubs of Thanet Knock-Out Pairs is being played at 11am on Sunday 2nd June 2019 at Northdown House, Northdown Park Road, Cliftonville, Margate, Kent CT9 3TP.
Come and have fun and get your names on the Thanet Cup or Broadstairs Bowl. There will also be other prizes for best non-expert and the biggest winning margin in any match.
This event is targeted at the ordinary club player. The format is one that means that there can be giant-killings. Could you be this year's David slaying Goliath?
Whilst this will be a properly run event with EBU Blue Master Points, we want to give you a gentle and fun introduction to Tournament Bridge, and is ideal for any club member of any ability. The cost is just £9 per player including free tea, coffee and soft drinks. Cakes are available to purchase. Bring your own refreshments, there will be a number of intervals between the rounds to enjoy them.

The club has been established over 25 years and over that time we have moved from The Royal Temple Yacht Club in Ramsgate to Northdown House in Cliftonville, then to Margate Football Club and we have now returned to Northdown House. The venue is large enough for all of our tables in the Red and Gold rooms, both of which are on the ground floor. Ample car parking is also available.
The club, which is EBU registered, meets at 6.45pm on Mondays and Thursdays every week for regular pairs competitions. Our Wednesday and Friday afternoon sessions start at 1.30pm. We hold social events including two dinners each year.
