_______________________

AU REVOIR TO LOU


Lou Badcock is shortly to leave us as she is moving to warmer climes in the East Midlands. I’m sure you will all join me in wishing her and Ernie bon voyage and sending her all our best wishes for a happy and successful move. No doubt we will still meet her regularly via the auspices of “online bridge”. Lou has been a mainstay of Bishop Auckland Bridge Club for many years. She has loyally supported the club in many capacities, having served as Secretary from 2008 to 2013 and then as Chairman from 2015 to 2020. Her considerable successes at the bridge table include her winning the Walker Bowl twice, as well as the Anniversary Trophy. The fact that this was achieved with three different partners illustrates her versatility in being able to adapt to play with different partners. She was always a pleasure to play with and against and she will be much missed both as a bridge player and a friend. In recognition of her outstanding service the club is pleased to make Lou an Honorary Life Member. Lou, you will always be welcome at the Bridge Club whenever you visit the area.

Welcome and thank you for visiting the website of Bishop Auckland Bridge Club.

The Club, located in the beautiful and historic Wear Valley market town is registered with the English Bridge Union and meets weekly for duplicate bridge on
Thursdays at 6.55 pm.

*   *   *   *   *   *   *

The venue for many years was the attractively renovated Bishop Auckland Town Hall.

However, the Club now meets at the

Bishop Auckland Golf Club,
the entrance to which is located a half a mile east of the market place on the A689.

There is ample free parking and this venue affords a comfortable base for the Club.

Visiting pairs are always welcome and partners can often be found for single players. 

Visitors should note that the Golf Club operates a Dress Code of 'Smart Casual Clothing' and that denim garments are not recommended in the bridge room.
