Welcome to Craven Arms Bridge Club

Friendly Duplicate Bridge club based at Culmington Village Hall, just beside the B4365 (SY8 2DA).

But note that the club will be meeting at Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre in Craven Arms until the end of February as the Village Hall is closed for repairs.

We play on Monday afternoons throughout the year (but not always on Bank Holiday Mondays).

Please be seated by 1.00 PM. Play starts at 1.15 PM. Please arrive on time as late arrivals may not be able to play. Note that we have recently decided to start play at this earlier time.

Table money is £2.00 for members and £2.50 for visitors.

If you need a partner, please contact Di Loney on 01584 878798.

Leagues and Competitions

The club has recently inherited two trophies from the Tenbury Wells Bridge Club, which has sadly had to close. We will award these trophies on the same basis that they were at Tenbury, each to be held by the winners for a year.

These competitions have been set up using additional features of the BridgeWebs service that hosts our website, and while doing this several other informal league or 'ladder' pages have also been added, purely for interest. All are accessed from entries in the main menu.
