Bassingham Bridge Club

Bassingham Bridge Club aims to provide a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in which members and guests may enjoy their bridge play.  We are a cheerful group keen to attract players of all levels and have a no pressure philosophy to encourage beginners.

All we ask is that members and guests accept and promote the Club ethos, i.e.  treat each other with tolerance, respect and above all remember the game of bridge is only a game of cards and whilst we all do our best to win we should:-

Never take the game, or ourselves, too seriously!

About our Club

Background

In August 1999 Roy Hughes began bridge tuition sessions in the Heritage Room at Bassingham Village, Lincolnshire.  Basing his instruction on the the “Bridge for All” manuals (a system which teaches the Standard English System of bridge) he encouraged players to adopt a relaxed attitude to the game thus encouraging a friendly atmosphere for a group of mixed abilities.

 

In April 2000 the small group of students led by Roy formed the present Club which today has approximately 120 members and a home now at The Hammond Hall, Bassingham.  The Club's success is in no small measure due to a comfortable atmosphere unlike that found in some Clubs where strict adherence to codes is expected and there may be pressure to play faster than the less accomplished might wish.  Again, in accordance with club ethos players are encouraged to make every effort between themselves to amicably resolve misunderstandings in bidding or play.  A Director is always available to provide helpful advice in accordance with our 'Ethics and Laws' (see sub-heading under menu item 'Club Information').

Fees

Joining fee of £1 (but no annual fee thereafter) and a table fee of £2 (£3 for visitors) which includes a cup of tea or coffee.  

 

Programme

Each week on Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday evening there are sessions for informal tuition and practice  which beginners and improvers may find particularly helpful.  On Thursday evenings we have a more formal session (though still friendly and relaxed) when Club members taking part may have their scores recorded towards winning trophies in the various Club competitions (Individual, Pairs, etc.).

 

Improvers thinking to join Thursday evening sessions should note that whenever there is a 5th Thursday in a month the session will be played in a particulary relaxed manner so that Thursday regular players can offer encouragement and help improvers adjust to the higher standard of play.

 

Many of the Club competition matches are played socially at members'  homes.

 

A Dinner is held each year when Club trophies are presented.
