Welcome to Colinton Castle Bridge Club
The Club is closed till further notice for normal Clubnights in line with Government and SBU Guidance.

Many Club Members have been playing in Club BBO Sessions every Tuesday evening during Lockdown.

During August, we ran 4 Trial events on the SBU BBO Pairs Platform.  The Trials went well so from the start of the 2020-21 season on Tuesday 1 September, we are running Club Pairs events every Tuesday, alternating between Cross IMPs and Match Point Scoring.  Each player is charged $2BB for each session played.

Members should register on BBO with their partner for the event between 5pm and 6.50pm and then be back online by 6.50.  If a Member does not have a partner for a Clubnight event, please use the Find a Partner page on the website or the BBO Partnership Desk.  If a Member has arranged to play with a Guest, please supply the Guest's BBO ID and SBU number to David Nisbet.

Here is a link to the video prepared before the Trial events which covers how to Register, how to load $BB to your BBO account and how to use the Partnership Desk.  Members have been advised of the password to view the video.

You will also find a document in the Information page of the website that gives useful information on BBO Etiquette and other practical issues.

The results from each Clubnight scored on Cross-IMPs will count towards the BBO Cross-IMPs Competition with the scores from the Clubnights scored on a Match Point basis will count towards the BBO Match Point Accumulator Competition - details of these Competitions and the results to date can be found on the respective pages in the Competitions section of the website.

In addition, on Saturday 3 October we ran a Pairs Competition open to CCBC members, friends and visitors who are SBU members and had expressed an interest in playing with us.  This proved successful so we will be holding further Pairs Tournaments on most Saturday afternoons from 17 October and these will appear in the Calendar on the Club Website.  They will be run on BBO and will start at 2.30. 

If you or your partner has not played in a Club BBO event before, please send your BBO names and SBU number to David Nisbet - email <> by the Friday afternoon before the event so he can add the details to our 'Include List' on BBO to enable you to play in the event.  Registration will open for each SBU_E_COC event at 12.30 on the Saturday for Pairs to register between then and 2.20.  There will be a charge of $2BB per player and we play about 20 Boards.

If any Member who has not yet played on BBO would like to join our on-line events, please contact Kay Robertson or Ian Thomson who will be very happy to introduce you to what is involved.


Colinton Castle Bridge Club in Normal Times

We extend a warm welcome to all bridge players.

Under normal circumstances, we play duplicate bridge every Tuesday evening from the start of September to the end of June in the Buckstone Suite at the Braid Hills Hotel, 134 Braid Road on the South Side of Edinburgh.  The club is a very friendly one, but the bridge is taken seriously.

Colinton Castle has had a team in the SBU East District Leagues for many years.  We played in the First Division in Season 2018/19 for the first time in the Club's history and finished in 9th place.  We are playing in the First Division this 2019/20 Season (now extended into 2021).  We now have a team called Braid Castle playing in the Fifth Division in Season 2019/20 (extended to 2021).

Members are welcome to bring along a visitor to play with them if their normal partner is occasionally unable to play on any given evening.

Any Non-Members wishing to come along with a partner to try out the Club should first contact the Secretary to check there is likely to be capacity for visitors to play on the intended Clubnight.

Applications for Membership can be made through the Secretary.
