The Walton & Hersham Bridge Club was originally formed by 'Mr Bridge', then taken over by Dennis Cook in 1989 and has since gone from strength to strength with over 250 members. In August 2006, Dennis handed over to Marietta Andree. And now in 2014, with Marietta's retirement, the club has been delivered into the capable hands of Steve Foster. The Club's motto is "Deal as you would be Dealt".
We meet on Tuesday & Thursday evenings at Hersham Centre, which is a bright modern building that can comfortably fit up to 24 tables. Please be punctual and take your seats by 7.25pm so that play can start at 7.30pm.
"Bridgemate IIs" are used so that results are updated as you play and hand copies for each session are available after play. We operate a host system, so a partner is always guaranteed. Free tea, coffee, soft drinks and water are available throughout the evening.
The club strives to provide friendly, relaxed evenings where players compete fairly with courtesy and good grace. We strongly support the "Best Behaviour at Bridge" programme sponsored by the EBU.
Please come and join us!
We have noticed that a substantial portion of our members only attend club sessions with their existing regular partners, and seem reluctant to come and play with other members.
Therefore, starting in May, we are introducing two special promotions to attempt to encourage and nurture new partnerships among our members called Solo Saver and Partnership Promoter.
Members coming along to the Club without a partner ("solo") receive a £2 discount off the table money (50% discount for standard sessions).
Newly-formed member partnerships may pay half-price regular table money for up to 3 sessions (applies to both members; surcharges for Sims, etc., will not be discounted). This offer is open to nascent partnerships where the members have recently begun playing together, and have played between 3-6 sessions to date, and is limited to 3 new partnerships per member per year.
In association with Meena's Fun2Play teaching group, we are running a Gentle Duplicate session on Tuesday evenings, to run alongside the main session.
It is on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays in the month, and if the numbers start to rise, we hope it will prove popular enough to grow to run every Tuesday.
The session will aim to play 18-20 boards in the evening, and will be Level 2 for systems (ie no complicated or obscure conventions). Ideal for duplicate newcomers, and players who would prefer a more relaxed pace than the main session.
Please help us by recommending these new sessions to your Bridge playing friends.
Play is scheduled to start at 7.30pm, so players should be seated by 7.25pm. Arriving late without warning is rude, and should be avoided if at all possible.
If you are delayed en-route to a session, please be sure to call and tell us so that we may reserve space for you in the movement (or inform your waiting partner), otherwise you risk a wasted journey.
Please congratulate Graham Sadie and Richard Granville who have won the Club's Pairs Championship ladder for 2018/19.
The Club Teams Championship on 30th April was won by David Burn, Graham Sadie, George Solarski & Richard Granville. They will be representing the Club in the Wanborough Cup (23rd June at Oxshott).
