Welcome to the Wells City Bridge Club website. We hope you find it interesting and informative. We welcome players of all standards to the Club Evenings on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Improvers may prefer Thursday evenings, however, where bridge is played in a more 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 Contract Bridge Assosciation (SCBA). On Tuesdays hands are computer dealt, Bridgemates are used for scoring and Masterpoints are awarded. On Thursdays we deal the hands ourselves and Masterpoints are not awarded..
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.
