Cheltenham Bridge Club is now the proud owner of a new hand dealing machine, a Dealer4.

Understanding all its capabilities is still a work in progress, but Teresa and Sue report that it is faster, more accurate and fun than our old machines.

Covid Guidelines at the Club

Cheltenham Bridge Club's policy is to follow the Government's guidelines when running face to face events.

Simply put the updated guidance advises people with symptoms of a respiratory infection, including COVID-19, and a high temperature or who feel unwell, to try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and they no longer have a high temperature. We would also ask that anyone who has been in contact with someone suffering from COVID-19 waits out the incubation time before rejoining play at the club.

Many thanks
