Please note that late finishes spoil some players' enjoyment of their bridge. Please try to arrive at 19:15 for a prompt 19:30 start, thank you.
Welcome to the new EBU bridge club in the Upminster area offering a friendly and social regular bridge session on Friday evenings, a daytime competition, lessons, social activities and club holidays.
Play with Upminster & Cranham - We play with finesse
Club competitions include annual ladders for pairs and individuals (Gents and Ladies), a Summer and Winter Championship and a 'World Championship'.
The 'World Championship' will be the highest ranked pair (or individual) from at least 3 of 4 'World of Bridge' events, these will be quarterly daytime sessions in local restaurants that include lunch - each event will feature a different country's cuisine.
Only club members will be eligible to win competitions (although non-members may play), there will be entry fees to the 'World Championship/World of Bridge' but these are be discounted for members.
Hello? I miss you. I have your glasses to remind me of you but I'd imagine you're having a hard time reading this and I’m having a hard time writing it – I can’t believe you left me.
If you’ve reconsidered the abandonment and now miss me as much as I miss you I'll be waiting for you next Friday night, anxiously.
I’ll keep your glasses safe until then but if you reject me the glasses get it!
Failing that contacting the club may put my mind at rest.
We will keep you up to date with what's going on here and first up will be an evening with yet more food & drink, plus some festive jumpers!
Our Xmas party night will be on 14th December, this evening will not count to ladder competitions but will include some spot prizes and fun games during the bridge. Of course the evening is free for our members - thank you Santa!
We have had some enquiries regarding lessons - beginners lessons will be on Friday afternoons and start in January with a free 'taster' lesson. Please let us know if you are interested, more information including contact details can be found under the ‘Bridge Tuition’ section on the menu to the left .
We were very pleased with the visit of last week's winners Ann & Nobby Clark.
For those of you who have read the little piece of history on our news pages Ann and Nobby were responsible for running the old Upminster club for many years and in fact still run another successful local club.
Ann was also a highly regarded teacher of bridge who introduced many local people into the game, including our own Sue & Tony.
Last week showed us the lovely couple haven't lost any of their skill over the preceeding years!
