Welcome to The Thursday Bridge Club


We meet at the WestCliff Hotel, Durley Chine Road, Bournemouth BH2 5JS every Thursday from 22nd July. Play starts at 7.00pm. Members and visitors must be seated by 6.50pm.

The club also works in partnership with St Luke's Bridge Club to provide 3 online bridge sessions on Monday, Tuesday and Friday and supports a private session on Sunday evenings. See below for details.

Members and visitors wishing to play at the club must have received two doses of Covid vaccines and everyone is required to show their vaccine card/certificate before being permitted to enter the bridge room. There is no requirement to wear a face mask in the bridge room but everyone must bring a face mask as the hotel may require one to be worn in communal areas.

Payment of £3 per session (£2 for online sessions see below) should be made by bank transfer to: The Thursday Bridge Club Sort code 09 01 29 Acc No. 25168549 using your surname(s) as the reference.


The club welcomes visitors but is unable to consider new memberships until we have been able to review how many of our existing members will not be returning to play face to face bridge. As we have been playing online bridge in partnership with St Luke's BC since April 2020 we also have a commitment to offer its members the opportunity to join our club

Charity Evenings

Three times a year the club donates our table money and anything extra which members and visitors wish to give to charity. This is usually a local charity but the club also responds to emergency appeals when a major disaster occurs.

On 6th June 2019 the club raised £417.50 for the South West Ambulance Charity which provides, among other things, extra equipment for the Ambulance Service

On 2nd July the club raised £190 for Winchelsea School's charity which will be used to buy special equipment for children with disabilities at the school to undertake their Duke of Edinburgh awards.

On 21st November we raised £281 and several bags of food for Bournemouth and Poole Food Banks 

The club has donated over £5083 to various charities since 2013.

Thank you to everyone who supports our charity evenings.

David Berwitz Defence Course

      "How to Defend a Bridge Hand"

 I am currently preparing an 8-week course, which, as the name suggests, concentrates on the art of DEFENCE at the bridge table.

Providing the Government COVID-19 rules allow, I plan to run the course at my home starting in mid-September. Please watch this space for full details.

If you are on my database, you will receive details of the course 2 weeks before I advertise generally.

You will be on my database if you have attended any of my previous courses, or attended any of my online classes.

Places will be strictly limited, and I expect the take-up to be high, as I have been asked by many students to run this course on Defence.

If you would like your name to be added to my database, please contact me on 07974-177636.

Thank you     David Berwitz
