Our table money is 1.50 for RealBridge sessions and £2.00 for Face to Face bridge. Our preference is for this to be paid online following an invoice but we are happy to accommodate other payment methods if you prefer.

Ukraine Appeal

 

With our members approval the club has decided to kick start a donation to the Ukraine Appeal via the Disasters Emeregncy Committee with a donation of £200 from club funds. This has now been added to quite significantly through the warmth and generosity of our members. And, WOW, our brilliant members have raised £700 which will now be sent to the Disasters Emergency Fund. This is amazing from a little club with approximately 40 members. We believe it's enough to make a genuine difference.

The club will also offer free participation in our Thursday Face to Face Bridge sessions for any Ukrainian Refugees living in proximity to the Bagworth area. In addition we shall also offer free tuition to any Ukrainian refugee to get them started in playing this great game

It is reassuring to see that the English Bridge Union, The European Bridge League and the World Bridge Federation have issued statements condemning Russia's action and like most business, cultural and sporting organisations, ties have been severed with Russia but with no animosity to individual Russian Bridge Players.

Bagworth Community Centre

We are a small and recently formed bridge group playing relaxed duplicate every Thursday afternoon and regularly have 6 tables.  We shall be returning to the Bagworth Community Centre for Face to Face Bridge on Thursday February 17th and will continue our online bridge facility using RealBridge on a  Monday and Wednesday evening. 

Our Mission is to share and spread the game of bridge to local people for their enjoyment, health and well being in a safe and comfortable environment.

We aim to create friendly and informal bridge play and whilst currently not affiliated to the English Bridge Union, we arrange matters and expect play to conform to their standards and procedures.

RealBridge at Bagworth

We are pleased to announce that RealBridge is now available via BBVA and your Bagworth Bridge Club on a Monday evening. This is an exciting extension to your bridge playing experience and will be used in addition to your current games on BBO. For those who are not aware of RealBridge it is more akin to playing face to face and is a great substitute for meeting at the club. If you wish to parcipate the fill in the form below and click submit and we will know of your interest

Our Real Bridge Today is now on Monday evening 7.00-9.15. Please click the link below for our next session on Monday 16th  May

Children in Need Simultaneous Pairs : Our group is not big enough to run a simultaneous pairs (SIMs) events but our members enjoy playing at other clubs as well. A SIMs pairs event is where players across the country play the same hands so they are equally matched.  Let's give them a round of applause. 

Simon Learoyd playing with his partner Anthony at the County Bridge club came 26th out of 500 on the Friday session. Belinda Chantler playing with her partner Bob at the Ashby club came 26th out of 1100+ on the Monday session.  WOW!                        

Funnily enough Simon and Nigel joined our 70% club in November. Congratulations!

Congratulations to John and Josie who had a challenging session on December 30th, the last of the year and rightly claim a place in our 70%+ roll of honour. Returning members to the 70% are Carol and Averil who managed an astonishing score of 77.08% on January 6th!
