Wallingford Bridge Club
WELCOME
WELCOME

The Wallingford Duplicate Bridge Club is a thriving and very active club with over 300 members, based at Berrick and Roke Village Hall, OX10 6JJ.

We are delighted to welcome new members – please click here for more information. 

Players come from all over Oxfordshire including Wallingford, Oxford, Thame, Henley, Abingdon, Benson and surrounding villages. We have playing sessions to suit players of all abilities.  Our Bridge Programme can be found in the left hand menu.  Visitors are very welcome at all sessions. 

If you are interested in learning how to play bridge, details of bridge classes can be found in the menu. We look forward to welcoming you at the Club.
 

Please be seated 10 minutes before the session starts.

Car Parking Arrangements at WBC

The overflow car park is usable but inevitably slippery on the grass due to the wet conditions. Can we encourage 4-wheel drive owners to use it if possible (or larger 2-wheel drive cars with wider tyres). Small cars with narrow tyre profiles will tend to chew up the ground more. Also, please drive slowly and go round the track before parking. Please share lifts wherever possible to reduce the amount of cars. Thanks.

The committee will be considering our options for a permanent solution to the parking issue, in the meantime thank you for your patience.

                                                           5th Friday    OBA Teams

HANDICAP INDIVIDUAL

This competition should interest all those improving players. A bit like a golf handicap, your combined bridge handicaps (with that of your partner) should level the playing field. So if you have a good evening, after applying your combined handicap you should finish high in the field. Obviously, if you play with a pro you may get a better score, but your handicap will be less helpful.So you may choose someone of your own level, to benefit from their lower handicap.

To be in contention to win you need to play with at least 6 different partners and your best 6 scores (all with different partners), will count towards your final score. So, why not organise your diary to play with a few different people and compete in 2017?
