Forthcoming events

The Kirk-Greene Cup will be contested on 12 successive Friday evenings commencing 12th September.  The aim is to achieve high percentage scores with four different partners.

Rubber bridge players will be contesting the Lushington Cup and Plate on the afternoon of Thursday 25th September.  All members are welcome to come and challenge the rubber experts, but only the 'regulars' will be eligible to win the cup.

Finally, we are adding some spice to the September fifth Tuesday teams (Sept. 30th), by putting up the Tatlow & White Salver  as an incentive.

National and County teams competitions

The KCBA is now inviting entries to its premier knockout competition, the Arnold Cup.  Details of how to enter can be found in the entrance lobby.  For information about the SW Kent league, the Pearson Cup, please contact Mike Griffiths.

Team captains may apply to play any match in the club for a fee of £28 (i.e. 8 x normal table money), which includes tea/coffee and biscuits and use of bridge equipment.  It is common for the host to provide more substantial fare to share with their opponents.  All the club requires is that one club member, or member of staff, should be present.

Car Parking Guidelines

The updated car parking guidelines have been posted on the notice board. It is important that these guidelines are followed especially at the changeover between the morning and afternoon sessions.

'Bridge with Angela' 5th edition

Angela Tompson has updated her popular bridge guide for students and improvers;  this is the fifth edition following upon the success of the earlier versions. The basics are unchanged but Angela has taken the opportunity to include further conventions currently and commonly played, including Benjaminised Acol.

This book commences with the very basics of bridge and goes on to describe the essential elements of bidding. Guidance on play of the cards and defence is included followed by explanations of conventions commonly played.


The Price is £7.95 and can be purchased at the club bar or phone Angela on 01892 526716.
