Welcome to Derek Patterson's Bridge Club!


Emmett's Gardens, scented bluebell walk


Chislehurst Bridge Club is run by Derek Patterson.

  • Derek runs duplicate bridge sessions every Tuesday and Thursday evening on Bridge Base Online, starting at 6.45pm for Red Section and 7.10pm for Green Section.
  • Everybody plays the same hands and the results appear on the website  with full traveller and board display, Play it again, Results Analysis,  BBO bidding and play data. Master points are awarded, but not NGS at present.
  • Everyone is welcome, but registration is necessary. If you are new to the club, tell Derek in advance that you are coming, give him your name, BBO username and email address. On the day, you need to enter yourselves as a pair for the event in the 2 hours before it starts.
  • The cost of entry is $3 (around £2.50), and you have to pre-purchase your $BB on the BBO website. Additional table money of £1 is also payable directly to Derek. See How to Pay.

Prior to Covid 19, before March 2020, the club had face-to-face sessions in the Church Hall, Chislehurst. These sessions have now been replaced by online sessions on BBO.

The installation instructions are at the end of the video above or see here. The hand diagram should be displayed in the history tab on BBO, bottom right of the screen. You have to make sure pictures of cards are off in the History under Account/Settings. Click on the little spade icon to see Bridge Solver and double dummy.

This starts Bridge Solver Online (BSOL) which lets you do this. Full details on using BSOL to "play" a hand in double dummy mode is available in this user guide, which has been written by Rees Mitchell for the website users at Vanderbilt Bridge Club, in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.

Newton’s Principia Lecture

Message from Charles:
"I have, over the past 20 or so years, translated Newton’s famous masterpiece, The Principia Mathematica, from Latin into English. The translation, which is heavily annotated, is supposed to be intelligible to anyone with a basic training in Mathematics or Physics, and might be of interest to those who are simply curious about these things.  I recently gave a public lecture on The Principia at Lincoln, and am flattered that Derek should have arranged for this film of the lecture to be placed on the Chislehurst Bridge Club website. In case anyone wants to purchase a copy at 30% off the usual price, here is the QR code."
