We are now a mature Bridge Club and, as with all other clubs, you are expected to play with your own partner. For many years, while we were a teaching club, we provided a partnership service on the day. However, we cannot continue this practice and if your regular partner is away please contact Philippa who will try to pre-arrange a partner for you. Thank you all for your understanding in this matter.
