Welcome to Corsham Bridge Club
Web Site

Welcome to Corsham Bridge Club 
We are a small friendly club with a history of over 40 years in Corsham.
The club is affiliated to the English Bridge Union (EBU)
 

 
We currently meet every Wednesday evening (Christmas excepted) in the Lounge Bar of the Royal British Legion clubhouse for a friendly game of competitive Duplicate Bridge. 

The RBL clubhouse is centrally located in Corsham town
There is ample free car parking in the public car park opposite the clubhouse.

Visitors of any level of experience are very welcome.  Please aim to arrive at the clubhouse at 7pm for a 7.15 pm start of play.  If you do not have a partner, please contact a committee member (click here for details) and we will try to arrange one for you.

Teas, coffees, alcoholic and soft drinks are available from the clubhouse bar.
Up coming events

Six High Swiss Teams - Saturday 19th June

Following the successful Nine High Swiss Teams that was held in March, the Midlands Counties (which Wiltshire is now included in) will be running a Six High Swiss Teams on Saturday 19th June.   

The last event restricted players to being no higher than a 9 in the NGS gradings, but for this one, we have lowered this to a 6 which should give some of the less experienced players a chance to play in - and even win - an inter-county competition.

Once again, the event will be run on RealBridge, giving you the opportunity of seeing and talking with your partner and opponents and there will be pair, team, and also county rankings.

All partnerships need to be an NGS 6 or below (but a 7 partnering a 5 is fine - but there should be no players higher than a 7 playing on the day).  This restriction will ensure that everyone has a comfortable game.   

If you need help with team-mates or if Swiss Teams is new to you, or if you do not know how to check your NGS – just ask! 

Please consider making up a foursome and coming along.  There is no limit to the number of teams entering, so if you are an NGS 6 or below, this is an ideal competition for you.

The competition will consist of around 25 boards, starting at 14.00 hrs on Saturday 19th June 2021.

Entries by email to Gayle Webb –gaylewebb@blueyonder.co.uk

 Including names of all the team members and their email addresses, by Monday 14th June, following which you will be sent payment details.   

The cost is a bargain at only £8 per team.

Have ago as the weather will be terrible, maybe. 

 

Corsham and Malmesbury Bridge Clubs have worked together to create an online virtual club on BBO.  You can now see the details of upcoming tournaments here on our website.  The virtual club meets every Wednesday and Thursday evening at 7 pm.  You have to register your pairing on BBO after 5 pm on the evening of the event. If you are playing with us for the first time on BBO then you need to register your BBO name with the club. Please email Lesley to have it added (prior to the event preferably). We will send you a copy of all the user names of our club of which you can use the BBO names for private games whenever you want to play.

 

Welcome New members
WELCOME TO NEW MEMBERS
 
We have recently welcomed several new members to Corsham Bridge Club. 
If you are one of them – we wish you a very warm welcome.

 
If this is your first club membership, then you will automatically have become a member of the English Bridge Union (EBU) and also will be affiliated to Wiltshire Contract Bridge Association (WCBA).   If you have not already been sent, or handed, a Welcome Letter from the WCBA, please see the copy attached below.
If you were already a member of the EBU but currently have your primary club membership outside Wiltshire, then you should consider making Corsham your primary club – this will automatically affiliate you to the WCBA.
We are privileged to count Richard Gwyer, the current, recently elected, Chairman of the WCBA amongst our members at Corsham Bridge Club.  As Richard says in his attached letter, the WCBA website is the place to look for information on all WCBA events and for links to other Wiltshire clubs.
Those of you who were already members of another EBU-affiliated club in Wiltshire, and who have now joined Corsham Bridge Club are equally welcome.  You will already be part of the WCBA and hopefully are well versed in the activities of the WCBA.
