Trying to find the Minutes of our Meetings? Who is on the Committee? When and where does play start?

Press the information button above for the answer to all of these.

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.

Sept 22 Before you can play in our online sessions three things are necessary
1)  You must be a BBO member (free and easily arranged if you are not)
2) You must hold $3 in your BBO account ($6 if you are also paying for your partner)
3) You must have informed Stuart that you wish to take part in a session.
Once you fulfil these conditions once, you need never bother Stuart again.

Our new student newsletter will keep you up to date with news of all sessions at the club which may be of interest to learners and less experienced players.  If you’d like to receive the newsletter direct to your inbox please register here

Online Sessions

We run regular club BBO tournaments.

  • Monday evenings, 7pm start. 20-24 boards depending on turnout and movement.
  • Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, 2pm start. 18 boards.
  • Every other Friday afternoon, Gentle Bridge, 2pm start. Check the Calendar for details.

Please register on BBO at least 15 minutes before the start of a tourney. It really helps the director.

Penny Haines

It is with great sadness that we report the death of Penny Haines in the early hours of this morning (October 12) after a long illness.

To more recent members Ken and Penny were players they saw on an occasional Tuesday afternoon but most members will remember the Haines as a great mainstay of the club for many, many years.   Penny was treasurer for a considerable period.  She will be remembered as an astute card player, a great committee member and a wonderful cook who always contributed to our many events even after she struggled with illness.  She was a kind and lovely lady with a mischievous sense of humour, liked by all.  Our thoughts and prayers are all with Ken at this difficult time.   

Whilst mentioning difficult times, you will be aware that funerals now are limited to 30 mourners.  I am sure the bridge club members alone could easily exceed that number so there will be a live webcast of the service which will also be available as a recording after 3 days and for up to 28 days thereafter. The web site is, username: Vogu2582, password: 193723. 

Family flowers only, please but for those who wish to make a memorial donation the chosen charity is Parkinson’s UK, c/o W Wraight & Son, Funeral Directors, The Square, Emsworth, PO10 7EG.
