Welcome to Bradshaw Bridge Club
Club Overview
Club Overview


Welcome to the Bradshaw Bridge Club web site


The Bradshaw Bridge Club is a very friendly bridge club that meets on most Tuesday evenings and most Wednesday afternoons for duplicate pairs bridge, though very occasionally we play teams.

Tuesday evenings: We play on RealBridge, starting at 7.30 p.m. on. Please log in as soon after 7.15 as possible. You can find the link in the online bridge menu item.

On Wednesday afternoons, we meet at the Maiden Place Community Centre, Lower Earley, Reading, RG6 3HE @ 1.30 start until 4.30 p.m.  

On Wednesday, the club uses Bridgemates and so the movement is fixed at 1.30 pm. Directors will normally not allow players to take part if both members of the pair are not seated by 1.30 pm. However, if a player knows that they are going to be inadvertently delayed in their journey to the club, please telephone their partner to advise them of the situation and the Director will attempt to make allowances.

Bridge playing visitors are welcome (but there is no host system) and membership of the club is available.

Visitors: please note that if we reach our maxium table capacity members have priority.

The Club is affiliated to the English Bridge Union. EBU Masterpoints are awarded at most Club evenings and will be credited directly.

The Club is also a member of the Berks & Bucks Contract Bridge Association. We enter 1 team into the Berks & Bucks League of 8, and a team of 4 in the Bracknell league.
