Buckingham Bridge Club is affiliated to the English Bridge Union (EBU) and meets weekly on Monday evenings to play duplicate bridge at The Centre in Verney Close (opposite the library). There is limited parking in Verney Close and ample parking in the car park at the back of Waitrose (which is free in the evenings). We pride ourselves on providing our members and their guests with competitive bridge in a very friendly environment.
Play starts at 7.00 p.m. so players should aim to arrive and be seated by 6.50 p.m. Play is normally concluded by 10.00 p.m.
If you are in any doubt about the club opening due to inclement weather or any other reason, please check the web site before leaving home. A notice will be posted on this web site as soon as any decision is made.
Annual subscription £15 - Joining Fee £15
Table charge per player: £2.50 members, £4 guests
Membership runs from 1st February to 31st January and membership is currently available
It takes a few minutes after everyone has arrived to decide on the movement and finalise setting up the system for scoring. Please try to arrive and be seated 10 minutes before play starts at 7.00 pm.
When its your turn to bid please try to avoid a long delay or fingering the bidding cards - and then PASSING. It conveys illicit information to your partner who will know that you can almost make a bid.
Remember - slow play can spoil it for others.
Buckingham Bridge Club is planning to give an evening bridge course for beginners starting Tuesday 10th September at The Centre in Verney Close, Buckingham. It is intended for people who have little or no experience of bridge but who want to learn.
The course is approved by the English Bridge Union and will be given by appropriately qualified tutors.
More details will follow. For any early enquiries please contact Mick Ellis on (01280) 812592 or Peter Holman on (01280) 822611.
