If you are a bridge player, free on a Thursday evening and living in North East Somerset or in surrounding areas, we would love to see you. Why not give us a try?

Welcome to Chew Valley Bridge Club

Information

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 affiliated to the English Bridge Union (EBU) and the Somerset Contract Bridge Association (SCBA). From 2024 the membership subscription, will be £5 per annum with a table fee of £3.00 (£4.00 for non members). 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 7:00 p.m.

Table Fee: £3.00 for members which includes tea or coffee and biscuits

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

Further Information

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 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. 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.

Masterpoint Promotions

Congratulations to Jane Hall who has just been promoted to the rank of Master, joining  Peter Dawes, Jackie Banks and Stephen Banks. All four have a long way to go to catch up the club's Premier Master, Paul Burgess and even further to overtake 5* Master, Faith Stinchcombe.

Christmas Competition

  A surprise clean sweep for Alan and Mary who were first and second in the Christmas Caption Competition for 2023. So a bottle of wine for Alan and a box of chocolates for Mary completed a good evening for them.
