Bridge for all players
Basingstoke Bridge Club is the largest club in Hampshire and 48th in England (by player sessions) and welcomes all bridge players, from complete beginner to expert. We have our own premises and licensed bar.
We play duplicate pairs on Monday, Thursday and Friday evenings starting at 7.30pm. Please be seated at 7.20pm to ensure a prompt start. Alternately the first Monday or Friday of each month is scheduled for teams of four. There is also duplicate bridge on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons starting at 1.00 pm.
If you think you may be late, phone the club on 01256 541988.
Mondays and Fridays are our main evenings with Thursdays being more relaxed with less experienced players and playing fewer boards.
Table money is £2.00 for members. Visitors and prospective new members are always welcome, (table money £3.00). On most Monday and Friday evenings and Tuesday afternoons there is a host, so any player arriving without a partner can always get a game. However please check the calendar to make sure there is a host on the relevant day. There is always a host on Thursday. There is no host on Wednesday, but please telephone Viv Morris (01256 889946) and she will try to arrange partners.
All sessions are scored electronically by Bridgemate and printed hand records are available.
A beginners' course (running from September to July) takes place on Tuesday evenings, 7.00 - 10.00. Please contact Chris Kinloch (01264 333175. email firstname.lastname@example.org ) for more information.
Improvers' sessions with a teaching topic and hands to play simultaneously (1.00pm - 4.30pm) are planned for occasional Friday afternoons and are posted on the web site. Members intending to attend these sessions should contact Chris Kinloch (as above).
Supervised play sessions occur twice a month on Friday mornings from 10.30am- 12.30pm. Please check the web site calendar for the booking form.
The chess club meets on Wednesday evenings. For information please phone John Shaddick on 01256 469749. There is also a link to their web site - www.basingstokechessclub.co.uk
