Welcome to Ashford and District Bridge Club, reputedly the oldest bridge club in Britain.

The aim of the club is to play and promote competitive duplicate bridge in a friendly environment in accordance with the rules of the EBU.

We play Duplicate Bridge every Tuesday and Friday evening at 7.30 pm and 'No Fear' evenings on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month (see box below for further detail)

Our venue is the Fordbridge Centre, Fordbridge Road, Ashford, Middlesex, TW15 2PU.

We welcome new players, so feel free to come along!

Starting Play on Time

As you are aware, the Club now uses the Bridgemate system for "live" scoring.

 To allow for the right movement to be set up and a prompt start by 19.30, players should be seated by no later than 19.20

Late arrivals after that may have to be turned away.

Thank you for your consideration


No Fear Evenings
No Fear Evenings

"No Fear" bridge evenings are held on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month starting at 19.30

Beginners and "Returners" are very welcome, with help and advice on the bidding and play readily available.

Partners are not needed as there are always "helpers" at hand who are happy to play bridge with you.

Please feel free to come along and give it a try - bridge is a great game for all.
