Burnham on Crouch Bridge Club

Originally formed on 1st May 1986 at the Crouch Yacht Club and known as the Crouch Bridge Club the original committee was made up by Harry Tribe as Chairman, John Staniforth as Treasurer and Sue Hunter Blair as Secretary.

The club regularly had 5 tables playing duplicate pairs every Thursday evening and only decided in 1990 to introduce a trophy for the highest ranked pair. The inaugural winners of the Crouch Bridge League were Harry and Laurie Tribe.

Except when yachting matters and Christmas have taken precedence the club has met continuously ever since.

In 2011 the club moved to the Royal Burnham Yacht Club and following this move changed its name to Burnham on Crouch Bridge Club.

The club moved again in January 2015 meeting at the Carnival Hall until the Covid19 pandemic.

In November 2021 the club recommenced face to face afternoon play, now on a Wednesday, following Coronavirus restrictions and moved to the Kings Hall, Chapel Road.

In November 2022 the club has found a new home at St Cuthbert's Catholic Church Hall, playing once again in the evening.
