Bray Bridge Club
Release 2.19o
Welcome to Bray Bridge Club
Latest News

The committee has met regularly (by zoom) and have decided that in the current Covid-19 era it would be prudent not to return to physical bridge in the near future.

However!  We will continue to be hopeful to retutn to real bridge as soon as the government guidelines allow.

In anticipation of this the club has purchased 12 sets of screens, and we can confirm that the new 'home' of Bray BC is upstairs in The Martello.

As we are still unable to play bridge 'live' for the next while, the committee have agreed that members will only pay CBAI affiliation fees for the present.  CBAI have advised a reduced fee until the end of November, we need only pay €10, as opposed to €12.50 after 1 December.  Details below:


We would appreciate if you could settle this by bank transfer/EFT to:

IBAN:                      IE68BOFI90103614131589
Bank Name:          Bank of Ireland
Bank Address:       Bank of Ireland, Main Street, Bray, Co. Wicklow

Please note: it is important that you INCLUDE YOUR NAME in the information/ details/ message fields with your payment. 

At this time, bank transfer/EFT is the preferred means of payment.  If, for whatever reason, this is not possible for you, please post cheques payable to Bray Bridge Club to Brendan Martin, Ailsa, 56 Raheen Park, Bray, Co, Wicklow.
