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.
Guests are welcome by prior arrangement with either Alan or Christine whose contact details may be found by clicking the Information menu iten on the left of this page. Applications for membership should also be agreed with Christine.
The maximum number of tables is 12.
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 results in an odd number of players, a hosting rota is employed to select a player to leave.
The hosting rota is comprised of Members who intend to play on a Thursday and live within a reasonable distance of the club.
Should a guest be present who has attended more than once, they will be asked to stand down instead of someone from the rota.
There is very limited parking at the club, but there is ample street parking close at hand.
