We are part of the Victoria Park Club which was established circa 1880. Like other clubs of this vintage Victoria Park Club originally catered for croquet and lawn tennis. The former has long since been abandoned and for many years the tennis has used hard courts. The Club has had a bridge section for many decades. For more tennis information see www.vptennis.net .
We are a small friendly club, offering duplicate bridge sessions on Monday (Duplicate Bridge) & Thursday (Gentle Duplicate Bridge) to members. Play commences at 7.00pm, and normally finishes around 10.00pm, with a short mid-session break for refreshments. Play is to English Bridge Union standards, although the club is not affiliated to the EBU. The maximum number of tables is 12.
We currently have some places for new members - please click the prospective members menu item on the left of this page to find out more. Guests are welcome by prior arrangement with either the Chair or the Secretary whose contact details are on the Information menu, to the left of this page.
Players on Monday nights are required to arrive with a partner for the evening.
Players on Thursday night may arrive without a partner; should this result in an odd number of players, a 'hosting' rota is employed to select a player to leave.
The hosting rota comprises Members who play on a Thursday and live within Exeter City Council boundaries. Members act as hosts around once a year.
There is very limited parking at the club, but there is ample street parking close at hand.
