Coronavirus - Face to Face Bridge - update

In March 2020 the AGBC Committee suspended Thursday night Bridge at the Memorial Hall; that position was reviewed regularly in conjunction with Government guidance and Members' preferences to decide when it would be safe to re-commence AGBC’s Thursday Bridge face-to-face nights at the Memorial Hall. The AGBC Committee agreed that face-to-face Bridge resumed at the Memorial Hall on Thursday, 7 October. However, over the past three weeks attendances dropped from 9 to 6 to 4 tables, COVID cases are increasing once again, plus the Memorial Hall environment is not conducive to a pleasant relaxed evening (windows and doors need to be open); therefore the AGBC Committee has decided to suspend face-to-face Bridge for the winter period.

The Committee has agreed that the three current online Bridge games will continue, as long as there is sufficient demand to make them viable from a cost and numbers perspective. 

We are investigating the possibility of facilitating other online Bridge events on the RealBridge platform.

The Club

With 120 members (plus another 124 playing online at AGBC facilitated events) AGBC is a very friendly and sociable Duplicate Bridge Club based at the Memorial Hall in Ashley Green, Buckinghamshire. There is ample parking with good access for all and we can accommodate a maximum of 20 tables.

We play Thursday evenings from 7:15 to 10:15 pm. Please arrive and be seated by 7:05 pm to give the Scorer time to complete the setup of the ArcScorer scoring system which allows for the electronical capture of the individual board scores and provides an instant display of the event's result.

If you know you are coming but are struggling timewise, but will be there to start at 7:15 pm, just call the Club on 07856 367236. Play will commence at 7:15 pm promptly after any announcements.
