Welcome to the Collier Row Bridge Club web site.
Collier Row is an EBU affiliated bridge club, however it is also a constituent section of the North Romford Community Association and operates within the terms of the NRCA constitution (please see the information section of this website for a copy of the NRCA constitution and further information about the NRCA). Membership of the club is obtained by becoming a member of the NRCA. Current annual subscriptions are £20 for an individual (£16 if a Senior Citizen) and £35 for a family.
Bridge is played at the North Romford Community Centre, Clockhouse Lane, Collier Row RM5 3QJ, on Thursdays at 7.30pm. We use bridgemate scoring and results are on display at the end of the session.
Visitors are welcome to all club nights except for the the prearranged Teams competition night on the first Thursday of March each year. On any other competition nights, visitors are welcome to play however pairs of visitors will not be eligible to win any prize or trophy - with the possible exception of the Random Teams, where any team with at least 2 members in it will be deemed eligible. (Please see the competitions section of this site for the scheduled competition dates). Table money is £4 for members and £6 for non-members, however individual visitors playing with a member (including those booking the host) can benefit from members rates for the first three visits.
There is free parking on site, and a licensed bar with subsidised prices is available for use by centre users (including Bridge club members and visitors).
A host system is in operation. It can be used by members whose usual partner is unavailable for a particular night, but the main aim is to provide a facility for potential new members to try the club out. You can book the host a maximum of 3 times, after that you would be expected to pair up with a regular partner and join the club. To book the host for a particular Thursday night, please phone Helen on 01708 751074, by NO LATER THAN 4pm on the day. The host is bookable on a first-come, first-served basis, but if already booked Helen will do her best to match you with any other unpaired single if you wish.
Congratulations to Helen Evans and George Tibbo on winning the Ken Collings Memorial Pairs on 5th December (see "Ken Collings MP" tab in Results section for full results). Next competition night: 5th March 2020, Club Teams of 4. Entry is as a team of 4, but the host will be available if 3 players need a 4th.
