Thank you for visiting the web site of the Chester-le-Street Duplicate Bridge Club. If you are resident in the North East or are visiting the area and are looking for a friendly evening of duplicate bridge then we look forward to welcoming you.
The club (founded in May 1999) is located a short distance from the historic Roman town of Chester-le-Street. Indeed the "le-Street" refers to the Roman road passing through and linking York to Hadrians Wall and the "wilds beyond the wall". In those times Chester-le-Street was the base for Roman cavalry.
Later the town became the resting place for St.Cuthbert and was the centre for pilgrimage before invading hordes obliged the monks to carry the saints remains to their final resting place in Durham. Today Chester-le-Street is a thriving market town and the home of Durham's County Cricket team.
The Chester-le-Street Duplicate Bridge Club is affiliated to the English Bridge Union and awards master points. We meet every Thursday evening with play commencing at 6.45pm, finishing comfortably before 10.00pm. Visitors are made very welcome and, provided we know in advance, a partner can usually be found for single players.
Our home for several years now has been the superb modern St. Barnabas Church Hall located in the village of Burnmoor. Directions on how to find us can be found in the "Information" section of this web site. There is plenty of car parking space.
TABLE MONEY INCREASE
Members are reminded that at our AGM on 9th May 2019, it was decided that members table money would be increased to £3 with effect from 16th May 2019.
Our annual membership fee remains at £5 and is now due.
With so many members away on holiday at the moment, the committee have decided to postpone our annual competition for the Audrey Lightley Trophy (normally held in June) to later in the year.
