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.
