Our Building  Chairman's Message  

Welcome to the Cheltenham Bridge Club website where we have now been playing under lockdown conditions for just under a year.  Most players are playing online with 'BBO' but the Club are utilising the 'Real Bridge' platform that has been developed by an English Team.  Do join us for our 'Real Bridge' on Thursday evenings (7pm) at the Club.  This platform allows you to see and speak to the  other members of the Club and NO robots allowed!! 
We are still hoping to become a CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation) and we will be holding our AGM online - date to be announced shortly.  We do hope that you will join us for the AGM so that we can implement this important change..
Finally it is hoped to hold the Congress with GCBA online between Friday 29th April and Sunday 1st May, including sessions for less experienced players. Further details are on this page. Stay safe - keep finessing!
Best wishes, Hugh Wilkinson (Chairman)
