Welcome to Buckingham Bridge Club
Bank Holiday Monday - 31st May

Please note: we WILL be playing bridge as usual on Monday 31st May

Special General Meeting

A Special General Meeting of the Club was held on Thursday 21st January 2021 at 7.00pm on Zoom.

There were two proposals to be voted on:

1.   To defer the AGM to the end of June;

2    To accept the current Committee to manage the club in a custodial capacity

The meeting was quorate and both proposals were agreed.

Buckingham Bridge Club On-line

We do not expect to be able to hold our regular Monday club nights at The Centre in Buckingham for some considerable time and it is likely that the only way many of us will be able to play bridge will be on-line. That is why, with support from the EBU, we have established a virtual Buckingham Bridge Club.

We can now offer to our members and guests a virtual club night every Monday evening at which we play a duplicate pairs event on-line. Play starts at 7.00pm and lasts just over two hours. Results are sent to the EBU and posted to this website.

General Information
General Information

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.

Membership & Charges

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

Please Note

 

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.

 

Requests

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.

Bridge for Beginners

The bridge course for beginners that started in September 2019 was suspended in March.

Lessons resumed weekly on-line  and the 1st Year Course has now concluded

The course was approved by the English Bridge Union and given by appropriately qualified tutors.

For any enquiries about possible future courses please contact  Mick Ellis on (01280) 812592.
