Welcome to Buckingham Bridge Club
Buckingham Bridge Club - Face-to-Face

We started playing duplicate pairs events online in our virtual club in June 2020. The results were sent to the EBU and posted to this website. This has served both members and guests very well while we have been unable to play face-to-face. This time is now drawing to a close.

On Monday 6th September we resumed playing bridge face-to-face in The Centre, Verney Close, starting gently with a Chicago evening. The following week we introduced scoring and hosted a gently paced duplicate pairs event. We have been playing face-to face since then with results posted to this web-site and sent to the EBU.

Because of prior bookings, The Centre is not available on Monday 11th October and Monday 18th October. On these dates we will play online as we have done for most of the the last 14-15 months.

 

 

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.

Please Note

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.
