Welcome to Cheltenham Bridge Club

Our Building  Chairman's Message  

Dear members, students and visitors,

We are currently unable to welcome you to our lovely club house. Until we can, we hope to meet with you remotely at some of the wide range of club games, operating within the Bridge Base Online website. The club’s team of volunteers is working hard to expand the services we offer but we hope that you can find at least one session to suit you.

This is a new situation for all of us and we welcome any suggestions you might have. If you are a visitor and would like to receive our fortnightly newsletter please email me at

Take care of yourself and be alert, particularly at the bridge table! I hope to meet you all face to face before too long.

Ro Kaye, Chairman

 How do I play in CBC online tournaments?

Help, I want to play online but it seems so complicated!

It's much easier than you may think. If you have a computer or an iPad or a tablet, and an internet connection, then you have all you need to play Bridge online.

But if it seems too complicated and difficult, or if you don't understand how to get started, or if you have questions, then please ask for help. Get in touch with one of our BBO Buddy volunteers (click here) who will be pleased to talk you through it. You'll be up and running in no time!
