Welcome to Antrobus Bridge Club
Bridge subs - can't believe I've put to 31.1.21 - should read: to 31.1.2022- Helena

We are intending returning to playing in Antrobus Village Hall on Wednesday evening 22nd September. The timing of the session will be as before (see below), i.e. please arrive by 7:00pm so that we can make a prompt start at 7:15pm.

We are conscious that we need to strike a balance between making the arrangements for playing in the hall safe but without the requirements feeling onerous and impacting on the nature of our club. We have therefore considered a number of factors and we are recommending these guidelines:

  • Only come to the club if you have had the requisite two vaccinations. This is for your own safety.
  • Do not come to the club if you have any of the symptoms of COVID (temperature, cough etc)
  • Do not come to the club if you have been in contact with anyone with COVID symptoms or has had a confirmed positive test for COVID in the preceding 7 days.
  • You do not need to wear a mask but feel free to do so if you prefer.
  • We are intending placing bidding boxes and cards on each table as normal, but the club will provide a bottle of sanitiser and would ask you to use this on entry to the building. If you prefer you can bring your own bottle and use this when moving tables.
  • We believe that the main room is large compared to the number of people playing so we do not intend increasing the level of ventilation. We will, however, space the tables out so that there is the requisite 2m distance between them.
  • A number of members have expressed the wish that they would like us to continue providing tea. To this end, we will institute a one-way system through the kitchen from the hall and out through the back and back into the main room. We would ask members to keep socially distanced from other members while in the queue and to keep the queue moving by minimising any social interaction until back in the main room.

We have unfortunately lost a few members during the period of playing remotely and, in addition, some have indicated that they will not be returning to playing at the club. We therefore ask you to encourage any new friends who might like to join us to come and test us out!

In terms of money, we intend to charge a half year’s membership fee for the remaining part of this current club year (to end of Feb 2022). Anyone who has paid the full subscription for this year (or had the previous year’s subscription rolled over) will be credited with half of this into the 2022/23 year. We also intend to keep the table money as it was when we were previously playing in the hall  (i.e. £1 per session). We will hold onto any credit in member’s remote playing account until the position about possible remote playing is firmer.

We realise that some members have got used to playing remotely using RealBridge and may even wish to continue doing so. In addition, remote playing gives us the opportunity of maintaining links with previous members who have left the area. We have discussed this issue and it was the Committee’s unanimous decision that we should keep to the club previous arrangement of playing at the Village Hall on Wednesday evenings, as this is the traditional evening of the club and avoids clashing with similar arrangements at near-by clubs. However, in order to provide the facility for those members who would prefer to play remotely we are going to continue the Monday afternoon RealBridge sessions for the foreseeable future. We could consider another timeslot (afternoon or evening) if there was a general consensus on a different time. If you have any suggestions, please email David on

Welcome to Antrobus Bridge Club web site.

We meet on Wednesday evenings at Antrobus Village Hall, Cheshire, CW9 6LB - members are asked to arrive  by 7:00pm for a prompt start at 7:15pm. 

In "normal" times we play duplicate bridge. We generally have 10+ tables, and play 24 hands, with a tea/coffee break half way through. The Club always aims for a friendly atmosphere, where less experienced players can enjoy their bridge alongside those of a good standard.

We also have a number of social evenings during the year and a Christmas Party evening.

See the "Information" page for more details including how to find us and costs.
