Tring Bowls Bridge Club (TBBC) is a Duplicate Bridge Club. There is ample parking with good access for all and we can accommodate a maximum of 14 tables; Wednesdays regularly exceed 10 playing tables and the Friday Improvers average 9 playing tables.
We play from 9:30 until 12:15 on both Wednesday and Friday mornings. Please arrive and be seated by 9:20 as play will commence at 9:30 promptly.
Refreshments are provided on a "help yourself" basis from the kitchen to enhance the morning's experience.
TBBC is not affiliated to the EBU.
For further information, not related to partners, please contact the Club Director, Derek Connelly, by email at email@example.com or phone (01442 890322).
Lessons in Bridge, following the English Bridge Union (EBU) “Bridge for All” national learning programme, will commence on 8 October 2018. The programme will be in two parts; the first half between October and December 2018 and the second half between January and March 2019. At the end of the course participants should have the confidence and ability to enter a friendly duplicate bridge competition at a bridge club.
Lessons will be enjoyable and inter-active concentrating upon getting attendees playing cards right from the start. In addition to attendance at weekly lessons participants will be encouraged to "self-teach" by utilising materials and books recommended by the EBU.
The lessons will be given by Derek Connelly (EBU accredited teacher) and Pete Rowling and have the support of local bridge clubs and their members. Local experienced players will be encouraged to attend, to assist/help the participants in the learning programme.
The lessons will be held at Berkhamsted Bowls Club, Broadwater HP4 2AL in central Berkhamsted. The Bowls Club has a thriving bridge section and excellent comfortable warm facilities in well-lit, ideal card playing conditions. There is ample free parking in Canal Fields. The lessons will take place on Monday mornings between 09.30 - 12.15 (commencing 8 October 2018). Additionally there will be an initial informal “get-together” at the end of September. At each session there will be a short break for tea/coffee and biscuits.

An open invitation has been made by senior members of Hemel Hempstead Bridge Club to local club players who wish to improve their game by adding new bidding techniques and by helping them to improve their card play. It is aimed at competent players who already know the basics but are seeking to improve their game. Help and advice is provided during the play of pre-selected hands. The winter 2018 sessions start on 6 September; full details of the schedule and topics to be covered are shown via the Tuition tab on the menu listing to the left.
If you need a partner for a Wednesday Duplicate Bridge session, please contact Dee Harrington on 01525 220625 or email 'email@example.com'.
Guest players in need of a partner should also contact Dee as above to see if there is a partner available as we do not operate a "host system".
Tring Bowls Bridge Club host a "Friday Improvers" section. These duplicate bridge sessions run each Friday morning from 09:30 to 12:15 at Tring Bowls Club. A short tuition session on key topics is provided.
The sessions are aimed at Bridge players who have Bridge knowledge but are seeking to improve their skills through assisted play with some instruction in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Partners are not necessary as a host system exists.

The Kitchen Steward for the day sets up for refreshments, turns on the immersion heater and checks stocks of tea, coffee, biscuits etc. At the end of the Bridge event, the Steward ensures the immersion heater is switched off, everything is stored away in the back cupboard and the kitchen is left clean and tidy. The next event's Steward is always shown to the right and on the main Calendar available off the Main Menu to the left. Please support your club by adding your name to the list which is available in the kitchen. Thank you.
