Congratulations again to Sheena and Andy who won the club heat of the Children in Need Simultaneous Pairs which raised £141 for this worthy cause.
Welcome to the Wells City Bridge Club website. We hope you find it interesting and informative. The Club plays duplicate bridge on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. We welcome players of all standards to The Main Club Evening on Tuesdays where we aim to play 24 to 27 boards per evening. Thursday Evening Sessions, however, are intended for players who have some knowledge of bridge but wish to improve their game. Bridge is played in a friendly relaxed atmosphere by playing fewer boards which then leaves time for a refreshment break and even a little social interaction!
The Club is affiliated to the EBU via the Somerset CBA, Hands are computer dealt and Bridgemates are used for scoring. Masterpoints are awarded on Tuesdays but not on Thursdays.
We regularly take part in SCBA and EBU events. Several of our players do well in County events, and occasionally at national level. For example, we have been the Somerset inter-club champions twice in the last few years. We have also represented Somerset in regional rounds of the Garden Cities Trophy. It would be true to say, however, that the main objective of the majority of Club players is a pleasant evening of bridge of a reasonable standard. We are most certainly not all experts!
Guests and new members are always welcome. See 'Where and When' under the 'Information' item in the blue menu on the left for full details of how to find or contact us.
