This year, Wallingford Bridge Club celebrates its 50th anniversary. We shall be holding an additional Swiss Pairs event this year, on Sunday, 30th June 2019, 11am for a 11:30 start. There will be 24 boards, with a break after 12 boards for a celebratory lunch. Price: £6 per person for the bridge play, lunch, and refreshments.
All members are encouraged to attend from all sessions, but we can only accommodate the first 46 pairs who enter. If a lot more members would like to attend, we will organise a second event later in the Summer. It will not just be the top players on the day who will be rewarded with prizes.
As at 20 April, we have 43 pairs who have enrolled. If we receive entries from more than 46 pairs, we will form a waiting list in case any members need to withdraw their entry. Although an automatic email may still be generated to confirm the on-line entry, those who are on the waiting list will be notified within the following 24 hours.
Please click here to register.
This will not be Blue pointed, but Master Points will apply. If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact Graham Rayner, Joan Bennett, Julie Bird or Peter Dyer.

Stuart has agreed to run these on Thursdays from 11.30-1.00.p.m. throughout June. There will then be a break for lunch, following which members may choose to play in the regular Thursday afternoon sessions which now start at 1.45.p.m. Stuart is open to suggestion as to the content and style of these, and is prepared to tailor them to demand. As this is a new venture, June will be a trial. If successful, then they will continue through July and August. The cost will be £5 which will be donated to charity.
