This is the website for inter-club duplicate tournaments, generally held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at the Athenaeum Club in London's Pall Mall. The Athenaeum is a private members club.
Inter-club duplicate pairs tournaments in person and the Sir Basil Hall Challenge Trophy are currently suspended due to public health advice re minimising the spread of COVID-19.
However online duplicate pairs evenings have now started in partnership with the Lansdowne Bridge Club, with sessions running weekly on Wednesdays from 7.30 pm on RealBridge. Athenaeum players and their guests are asked to be online by 7.15pm.
