Welcome to Basingstoke Bridge Club
Welcome to Basingstoke Bridge Club

Basingstoke Bridge club was founded in 1966 by Harold Foster and is the largest bridge club in Hampshire with a thriving membership of over 200.  We are located in our own premises at Maydene, Sherborne Rd, Basingstoke. 

We have members of all ages and abilities.  We play duplicate bridge to cover all abilities Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings, Wednesday afternoons and Friday mornings with a mixture of face to face at the club and online using RealBridge. In addition we have an ongoing teaching programme to suit all abilities.    We also run regular 'social events' including Bridge and Chips held in local pubs or at golf courses and a weekend away in Bournemouth.

The club has all the facilities you would expect from a thriving club including parking, easy access to the building, facilities for the disabled and kitchen and refreshments.  

Visitors are always welcome but please let us know if you wish to attend. (See how to contact us.)

Interhemispheric Challenge on Realbridge

You and your partner have been invited to take part in a contest spanning vast expanses of land and sea.  It takes place on Tuesday 4th July starting at 9am. 

There will be three pools of players. The top 20 tables will comprise the expert pool. Club players will be in the middle pool. Newcomers to the game and learners (having played more than six months but up tp 2 years) will be in their own pool. In the newcomers pool, we will play two fewer boards, so that we will all end at the same time. 

To register your interest in this event please click here.  You will be contacted again nearer the date.   Entries close Friday 23rd June.
