Claygate now uses a wireless scoring system called BridgePal, which runs on smartphones and tablets.  The implementation team today consists of Gavin Wilson and Carol Wildig, but more volunteers are very welcome.  We will provide as much help and training as each North needs to enter the scores into the handset.

Further information about BridgePal can be found here.

Welcome to Claygate Bridge Club

  The Club Championship will return in August...

After two years' absence, the Club Championship will return in August. For seven months, the results that pairs achieve on the second Monday of each month will contribute to their overall ranking in the Club Championship. You will have to play in the same pair on at least four of those seven occasions in order to qualify.

In order to maximise your oppportunities to participate, there will be no host on these evenings.

  The Claygate Difference: Our Commitment to You

We will always:

  • Run a session every Monday evening[1].
  • Use movements which work, so long as all participants arrive on time and make it through to the end.
  • Provide a host for each session so that you know you can turn up without a partner[2].
  • Publish the results of each session on the club website later the same evening.
  • Include the contracts as well as the scores in those results.
  • Include details of all the hands in those results.
  • Submit the results to the EBU within 24 hours, to enable Masterpoints to be accumulated.
  • Explain promptly on this home page if there has been a problem.
  • Run all sessions from the same location: the Claygate Community Centre[3].

The small print:

  1. Except on public holidays.
  2. Except on Club Championship evenings.
  3. The Elmbridge Draft Local Plan, published 16th March 2022, states that the Community Centre will be rebuilt to add 14 residential units during the period 2028-2032.
  The Club is now operating as normal.

Claygate has resumed weekly face-to-face play.

Here is the small print:

  1. To play, you must be double-jabbed and not have any COVID symptoms on the day.
  2. We will be delighted to welcome both members and non-members.
  3. The table money for members is now £2.50 per session, so that pairs can present the treasurer with a £5 note when she collects it. Change will not be given.
  4. The usual soft drinks will be provided. If you decide to use the Centre's cups, you must wash and dry them yourself. Of course you can still bring your own drinking vessel.
  5. Do not expect biscuits.
The Club is now operating as normal.
  Information for Visitors about the Club

We play Duplicate Pairs each Monday, except on Bank Holidays.

The club is affiliated to the EBU, so every session attracts Masterpoints for the highest-ranked players on the night.

Play starts at 7.30 pm, but all players must arrive by 7.20 pm.

A session normally consists of 24 boards, and it should be over by 10.30 pm.

Visitors are very welcome.

We always play at Claygate Centre for the Community, Elm Road, Claygate KT10 0EH.

Commonly called the 'Day Centre', its phone number is: 01372 463476    Map  

The cost per player, which covers both play and refreshments, is:

£2.50 for members, and £5.00 for no-members.
