Want to play but don't have a partner?

BBO provides a Partnership Desk through which you can find other members looking for a partner.

It's a good idea to visit the tournament two hours before it starts and then immediately register that you're looking for a partner.

If you let Stuart know in advance by emailing here then he can let people know in the tournament email.

Pru Hart

We are sad to report that Pru Hart passed away on Sat 8th Mat.

Pru was a long-standing member who continued to play at the Club despite her illness and mobility challenges until we had to suspend face-to-face play last year. She was exceptionally stoic in her approach and the way in which she bore her diminishing abilities.

The Club would also like to thank everybody to helped Pru play with us. 

Regards, Stuart

Competition latest...

David, Peter and Yves, having beaten the favourites in the Sussex Championship teams quarter final, had in many people's eyes, taken on the mantle of favourites for the tournament.   However, in the semi final against the Langston team despite building a lead of 23 imps going into the final quarter, they lost by the torturously close margin of one imp.   The good fortune that had been prevalent in their quarter final deserted them but no one on the team played up to expectations in the match and they must now observe, rather than compete, in the final.

The only consolation for David and Peter is that they were part of the Sussex team of eight that comprehensively beat Middlesex by 39 imps in their first Counties Southern League fixture in April.  They await further fixtures with optimism.

2021 AGM

We held our AGM on Zoom on Tuesday 23rd March at 7.00 pm.  It was great to see more than 40 members attend. All the proposals were approved, and the relevant documents can be found on the website in the 2021 AGM section of the left hand menu. 

Minutes will be available in due course.
