Recent research has found that playing bridge has a statistically significant positive effect on wellbeing. Researchers at Stirling University, in conjunction with the English Bridge Education and Development, undertook a survey of over 7000 people, most of whom were bridge players. A majority of respondents indicated that playing bridge brought benefits to them personally in the form of the game having a competitive element, facilitating socialising with friends and most commonly being mentally stimulating and deriving enjoyment from the activity. This contributed to a greater sense of wellbeing than average. (taken from EBU website). Playing in our lovely Georgian Building is an added bonus for us.
A relaxed duplicate practice session is held on Monday afternoon. More time is given to play each hand than during a normal club session. This session is open to non-members, no partner needed 13:45 to 16:45.

The Bognor Club welcomes all bridge players, beginners or experienced club players. We have our own premises with both a bridge room and a dedicated snooker room. We play bridge most days with both afternoon and evening sessions, with Gentle Bridge on Thursday evenings (see the calendar for details).
It is easy to get to the afternoon sessions by public transport. The train station is only a few minutes walk away from the Club, apart from all the local buses the Coastliner Bus connects Bognor with Chichester and Littlehampton. For those using their own transport the Lyon Street and Regis Centre car parks are just a few minutes walk away. For the evening sessions there is ample parking outside the club.
New members and visitors are always given a warm welcome.
