Welcome to Clevedon & Portishead Bridge Club

Clevedon and Portishead Bridge Clubs were established by Colin and Lesley Floyd in 1992 and 1997 respectively. The two clubs later moved to the same premises in Portishead but continued to maintain separate identities.

On 1st August 2017 it became a single member owned club affiliated to the EBU and plays duplicate events every Wednesday evening beginning at 7pm.  EBU masterpoints are issued. 

We generally have 7-8 tables and aim to play 27 boards.  If you haven't got a partner you should contact David Serle, who will help you find one.

We play for the Floyd Memorial Trophy on the first Wednesday of the month, points being awarded for position after the application of handicaps, which are determined by NGS grade, also that we play for the Percentage Trophy on the third Wednesday of the month.  Each player's best 8 scores over the year determine the final ranking for both events, and players have to compete in at least 8 sessions to qualify. Current standings can be found in the Competitions section of this website.

Friday sessions have been replaced by Woodspring Online (see below).
