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) and a 'World of Bridge - 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 next 'World of Bridge' event and we're working on a charity evening event.
Guests, visitors or friends are always very welcome to attend any evening or event but only members may win competitions.
The results for the recent MiniBridge Sims are now finalised and our students Vee & Dave Brand are to be especially congratulated on an excellent 60.13% and 9th place nationally!
All our students aquitted themselves well but Vee & Dave were chased home by another UCBC pair; Jennifer Spearman & Pauline Collier who with 55.48% finished 14th.
Very well done guys!
A hugely enjoyable first World of Bridge event in the lovely Osteria Due Amici in Upminster was won by Carol McCue and Paul Stevens.
The full results can be seen from the menu option to the left and a brief report is here.
Event 2 will take place in June, please check back soon or watch the club noticeboard for updates.
Our club night on Fridays will include a relaxed supervised play section subject to demand, we're expecting a couple of tables from our tuition group but others are most welcome. Please contact us for details.
Although a short season last year's Pairs Ladder was won by Geoff Wootton & Jon Ward with an impressive 65.80% average.
Jon Ward also scooped the Individual Ladder for Gents with 65.42% while Mary Putt took the Ladies title with 58.55%.
Many thanks all those taking part, we look forward to a fun and fiercely contested full program next year.
