Welcome to the West Sussex Bridge Club web site. The Club meets for duplicate pairs each Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evening and Thursday afternoons (see Calendar). There is also a Basic Bridge (Level 2) session on Thursday evenings. Many Sussex and EBU events (e.g. simultaneous pairs) are also held here. The Club is situated in Cuckfield, near Haywards Heath in Mid Sussex (see "How to find us" in the "Information" section). The clubhouse is in the grounds of Warden Park school.

Whilst many who play in the club are very good players and the overall standard is quite high, the main objective is that everyone should enjoy playing bridge at West Sussex and that the atmosphere remains friendly throughout all sessions.

22 pairs of experienced and less experienced players took part in this inaugural event in Jackie's memory and a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon was had by all.

Many thanks are due to Jackie's husband Bill who provided all the prizes and to Suzy Gray for baking all the cakes and biscuits.

A magnificent £420 was raised in aid of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

Convention Cards and Partnership Agreements

Whilst not making it compulsory, the Committee would like to encourage all partnerships to have an agreed convention card. You can use your own layout, fill in one of the blank formats to be found on the EBU website or use the simple form on the front page of the score card. The EBU website has some suggested convention cards for basic systems. Having a written partnership agreement obviously helps consistency in bidding and playing and also improving your bridge.

Thursday Evenings

The Thursday evening session is primarily intended for less experienced players and only Level 2 systems may be used. Full details of which conventions are not accepted can be viewed in the menu item called “Thursday Evening Guidelines”.

Parking Problems

The school is holding events on Tuesday 18 November and Thursday 11 December (afternoon and evening) so please allow extra time in case there are parking difficulties.

Teams in December
The session on Monday 15th December will be a Teams format. You may come as a team or be paired
off on the night. A Notice will be displayed at the club for those wishing to establish a team before the
evening. A Standby pair (Chris Jago & David Spencer) will be on hand so any pair turning up for the
session will be guaranteed a game. Please try to arrive by 7.20 to ensure a prompt start.
Standby Tuesdays Wednesdays & Thursdays

For a trial 6 month period, we are extending the standby arrangement to include Wednesdays. This means that players without partners (whether or not they are a member) can now turn up on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursday evenings and be guaranteed a game. Everyone is welcome to make use of this facility but please arrive at the club by 7.15pm.

Thursday Afternoon Sessions

Thursday afternoons start at 1.30 pm. Table money is now £1.50 for members and £2.50 for visitors.
