Welcome to Broadstairs Bridge Club
Broadstairs Bridge Club
Broadstairs Bridge Club

Welcome to Broadstairs Bridge Club. The club is a member of the English Bridge Union. We play at the Portland Centre, St Peter's Church Hall, Hopeville Avenue, Broadstairs CT10 2TR on Wednesday evenings at 6:50pm, on and Monday afternoons at 1.50pm. 

 -----------------------------------

We aim for a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, playing about 22/24 boards and stopping for a tea/coffee break with biscuits, however the Monday session is half an hour shorter, so will be slightly less boards. Visitors are welcome but please come as a pair (or use our partner finding service, see below), and please note that space could be limited so please telephone ahead (for further details please click on 'Information' then 'Where and When').  Facilities for the disabled are excellent.

Membership is currently open and if you would like to become a member please obtain a Membership Form from one of the Committee or download one from the website.  Hopefully you will find any other details you are looking for on this web site. For a bit more information about the club click on 'information' then 'general'.

HOST AND PARTNER FINDING

We want to ensure that everyone who wants to get a game at Broadstairs can do so. The Message Board has always been available for anyone wishing to leave requests for partners and continues to be so. Also in the in the Members Area of the web site requests for partners can be placed against specific events in the calendar and this also continues.

However there are two services which are being run by Rosemary English. The first is a Partner Finding Service.

 If you know you will need a partner call and leave a message, or text Rosemary English on 07948185033, or email her on g-r.english@tiscali.co.ukPlease leave contact details, dates, and any preferences.  Rosemary will co-ordinate the service, keeping a list for all partner requests for upcoming sessions, and notify you if a suitable partner is available.

Please try to register your partner requests at least 24 hours in advance, as on-the-day requests may be difficult to match.

If anybody does not regularly play a particular session, but is happy to consider occasional games with those seeking a partner at short notice, please register an interest.

On Wednesdays we are able to guarantee a partner for single players (apart from special events such as Sim pairs) through our Host System.

To get a game please telephone Rosemary on 07948185033 as far in advance as possible and in any event no later than 12.00 noon on the day. Leave a message including your name and that you want to play on the Wednesday and turn up at the club by 6:40pm. If there are an even number of such requests you will be paired up on arrival. If there are an odd number the host will play to make up the numbers. The host will be contacted either way by 1:00pm to be told whether or not they are needed.

Regular Wednesday players are expected to act as host no more than once a year. Please look on the calendar to see on which night you are needed. If you cannot make that date please swap with another member and let Rosemary know so that the records can be updated. Please make sure you are available to receive the call from Rosemary between 12 noon and 1:00pm.

This service is meant to be a facility for visitors and members whose regular partner is not available. It is not intended to be used on a long-term basis as a substitute for establishing a regular partnership.
