Welcome to the Wells City Bridge Club Website. We hope you find it interesting and informative. The Club plays duplicate bridge on two evenings a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays: The Main Club Evening is on Tuesdays, and welcomes players of all standards. The Thursday Evening Session is "no fear" bridge and is aimed at improvers.

Tuesday Bridge

Wells Bridge Club is affiliated to the EBU via the Somerset CBA, so master points are awarded for all events. Hands are computer dealt and Bridgemates are used for scoring. While we cater for all standards, some inexperienced players may feel more comfortable playing on Thursday evenings, but are, of course, very welcome to transfer to the main Tuesday session whenever they feel ready to do so.

The Club regularly takes part in SCBA and EBU  events. Some of our players frequently 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.

However, it would be true to say 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! We regularly have between 9 and 11 tables in play: occasionally more.

Guests and new members are always welcome. Guests may turn up without notice, but must arrive as pairs. Guests without partners are also welcome, but must give sufficient notice for a partner to be arranged, if possible. All guests are advised to check the website beforehand, just in case a special event is taking place which only caters for regular members.

Prospective new members are also most welcome, and are encouraged to contact one of the Committee (see links on this page), before playing for the first time. This is particularly important if the new member does not have a partner:  every effort will be made to find  one for them (even if only on a temporary basis) in these cases.

Play starts promptly at 7.00.       

All Tuesday sessions take place in the Seager Hall, Union Street Wells. BA5 2PU. There is a large public car park (free in the evening) just around the corner.

Thursday Bridge

Wells City Bridge Club Thursday sessions are open to anyone who has some experience of bridge. It is intended for players who have some knowledge of bridge but wish to improve their playing skills. Bridge is played in a friendly relaxed atmosphere and we aim to play 20+ boards in an evening, although we always find time for a refreshment break!
Guests and new members are always welcome. You can come along and try us out for 2 or 3 weeks before deciding if you wish to join. Please contact the Thursday Group Membership Secretary, Mary Loakes, email: mcloakes@hotmail.com
We play at St Thomas’ Church Hall, St Thomas Street, Wells, BA5 2UZ with play starting at 7.00pm. Please arrive at 6.45pm for the director to organise the session so play can begin at 7.00. St Thomas’ Hall has its own car park. There is a table fee of £2, which covers the bridge and refreshments.

The Chairman, Charlie Sutton said it was a great evening. The duplicate bridge hands played  were prepared by Roy Rowe to test the learning of members, from teachings given on other evenings this year. Charlie thanked everyone for their generosity and support
