David Clarke

Sandy, David's wife, made the Club aware of the very sad news that David died on Tuesday 7 May in Cornwall from a heart attack in the night, whilst visiting family.

Everyone is shocked and very upset to hear the sad news. 

Our thoughts are with his wife Sandy and the rest of the family at this difficult time.

Road works in Ashley Green

Players attending the Ashley Green Memorial Hall on Thursdays are reminded to allow some extra travel time to get through the ongoing road work disruption, caused by the installation of new water pipes.

The Club

AGBC is a Duplicate Bridge Club based at the Memorial Hall in Ashley Green, Buckinghamshire and has 130+ members, plus another 200+ players registered to play at AGBC facilitated events.

We take pride in being a friendly-first club with our Bridge played in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere; our ethos is that the first rule of Bridge is to enjoy it and the second rule is to ensure everyone at your table enjoys the game too! We welcome Bridge players who value Bridge as an enjoyable and sociable game - be it online or face-to-face. Friends and guests are more than welcome to join any of the advertised events.

AGBC facilitate on-line events each Tuesday and Thursday evening from 19:15 to 21:30 pm.

Additionally we play face-to-face at the Ashley Green Memorial Hall each Thursday evening from 19:15 to around 22:00’ish. There is ample parking at the Memorial Hall, with good access for all. We can accommodate 20 tables. Please arrive and be seated by 19:05 pm to give the Scorer time to complete the setup of the ArcScorer scoring system and distribute the pre-dealt hands. ArcScorer allows for the electronic capture of the individual board scores, the hands played and provides an instant display of the event's end result on each tablet.

If you know you are coming but are struggling time wise, but will be there to start at 19:15 pm, just call the Club on 07856 367236.
