Mendip Online is taking a summer vacation. Chew Valley hopes to return to live bridge in the autumn and we will update the website as soon as a date is arranged. 

Welcome to Chew Valley Bridge Club
Mendip Online Bridge Club

Chew Valley Bridge Club in conjunction with Compton Martin and West Harptree Bridge Clubs has formed Mendip Online Bridge Club to play on Bridge Base Online (BBO)

 Please note: Mendip Online Bridge Club is currently on a summer break.

Somerset CBA has a variety of games scehduled over the summer - please refer to their website for details.


Chew Valley Bridge Club was founded as a members' club in 1987. It is a friendly duplicate club situated in the Chew Valley in North East Somerset, nine miles south west of Bristol. The club started off life playing in various venues in Chew Magna but since 2007 the club has been based in Chew Stoke. We always welcome visitors and potential new members and try to make them feel at home. The club is not affiliated to the English Bridge Union (EBU) and is listed on the Somerset Contract Bridge Association (SCBA) website as an unaffiliated club. There is no membership subscription, only a table fee. The club strongly supports the EBU’s 'Best Behaviour at Bridge' policy, details of which can be found under 'EBU Information'.

Venue: Chew Stoke Methodist Church Hall,
             Chapel Lane,
             Chew Stoke,

             BS40 8XD

Day: Thursday evening with play starting promptly at 7:15 p.m.

Table Fee: £2.50 which includes tea or coffee and biscuits

If you don't have a partner the club can often find one for you.

Further information is available from the Chairman, Paul Burgess, on (01761) 221818.

The Club meets on a weekly basis around 43 times a year playing duplicate pairs, except for three occasions when we have our Spring Teams, Summer Teams, and Autumn Teams evenings. The playing season runs from late September through to the end of July. Every year we have a Summer Drinks Party and a Christmas Party. At the Christmas Party presentations are made to the Club's 'Player of the Year' and to the Club's 'Most Improved Player'. The winner of the 'Christmas Competition' is also awarded their prize.

If you can play bridge but haven't yet ventured into a club then give us a try at one of our regular meetings. Alternatively come to one of the occasional evenings we have for new or inexperienced players. This may well encourage you to become a member. We have players of differing standards but what unites us all is enjoying a fascinating game in a friendly atmosphere in a very comfortable venue.

Somerset Inter Club Competition 2019/20

An excellent showing by Chew Valley teams in the SCBA Inter-club competition resulted in the retention of the trophy. The winning team of Alan and Mary Rodgman and Stephen and Jackie Banks amassed 67 VPs winning all four matches. In conjunction with the performance in the pairs section the club won the overall competition too. Well done to all who competed on the club's behalf.
