The new BridgeWebs website

Following the trial of the BridgeWebs website the Club Committee have now decided to move over to BridgeWebs as the Club's website host on a permanent basis. This is primarily because it is easier to update and maintain by people with limited IT expertise and has Bridge Solver On-Line integrated into the host service. BridgeWebs also seems to be very widely used within the broader bridge community and we are hoping the familiarity with BridgeWebs will help us attract new members. If any member has difficulty getting into the members area on the new website please email From the end of August the old Club website hosted by Deep Vault will no longer function. The Club is very grateful for the hosting of the website and the support received from Deep Vault over many years.
