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'.
Our 'World Champion' will be the highest ranked individual/s 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 'World of Bridge' but these are discounted for members.
We will keep you up to date with what's going on here - next up will be our first 'World of Bridge' event followed by a charity evening and an exciting new summer event.
Guests, visitors or friends are always very welcome to attend any evening or event but only members may win competitions.
Event 1 of our weekday 'World of Bridge' lunch inclusive competition will be on Monday 25th March and it's proving to be very popular!
This first event of the series will take place at the lovely Osteria Due Amici in Upminster. Booking is required, space is limited and filling fast - full details here.
Lessons for beginners got underway at the club at the start of February.
The 'Class of 19' comprises of 14 newcomers and they are shown on the right getting to grips with the finer points of Minibridge. One or two already show early promise so the rest of us will have to brush up our skills when they start to filter into the club in the coming months.
We wish each and every one of them every success and much fun as they begin to enjoy our wonderful game mind sport.
It's not too late to join the course especially if you have a little experience or want to refresh your knowledge, see the 'Bridge Tuition' menu option to the left.
Although a short season last year's Pairs Ladder was won by Geoff Wootton & Jon Ward with an impressive 65.80% average.

Many thanks all those taking part, we look forward to a fun and fiercely contested full program next year.
