Welcome to Berkhamsted Bowls Bridge Club.
BBBC prides itself on being a friendly and welcoming club. It is a Members' Club, but visiting pairs are most welcome - you do not need to be a Bowls player, but you will need a partner as we do not operate a host system.
The Club is not affiliated to the EBU and is not suitable for beginners.
Further information can be obtained from the Bridge Managers (Lesley Brown 07850 123441 and Liz Temple 07956 540781).
|BBBC Goes Cashless!
The new paying system came into effect on 9 January – you do not need to bring any money! Just turn up and play, the system will deduct your table money from what you have pre-paid the club.
The account details to pre-pay your table money are:
- Sort code: 07-09-76
- Account no: 03959699
- Account name: Lesley Brown OR Elizabeth Temple
- Payment Reference: BBBC XXxxxx - click HERE to view your Payment Reference.
For those who not do online banking, perhaps consider making arrangements with your Bridge partner or friend to make the payments on your behalf (using your Payment Reference) and then reimburse them independently. If necessary, we would accept a cheque made payable to "Mrs L M Brown" or "Mrs E Temple" but this would then necessitate us going to the bank to pay it in. Please speak to Lesley or Liz if you have further issues/concerns.
Each month you will be sent a statement of your Online Account - similar to a bank statement - and between times you can check your online balance at any time via the website – ask Steve for your login details.
