Welcome to the Crawley Bridge Club web-site.

Before Covid, the club used to meet on Wednesdays and Fridays at Grattons Indoor Bowls Club (off Grattons Drive) in Three Bridges to play duplicate pairs in a friendly and comfortable atmosphere.  Occasionally, we had a teams event.  There was also a supervised duplicate session on Mondays.

But, for the time being, all CBC bridge will be online using Bridge Base Online (BBO).  Current sessions, also held in a friendly atmosphere, are :-

  • Mondays - Gentle Duplicate (12 boards -  for details, please contact Richard Jameson, 01293-882888),
  • Wednesdays - Club Duplicate,
  • Fridays - Club Duplicate,

all starting at 7:15.  See instructions.

Online teaching sessions will also be held (currently using Zoom and BBO) - see Teaching page for details.

A First for Crawley Bridge Club?

Many congratulations to Mike and Paola Codd who had a baby boy, Jack, on Thursday!!  Mother and baby are doing well.

This is thought to be the first time that a baby has been born to 2 CBC members!

Betty's Big Birthday
Betty's Big Birthday
Covid may be here but that was no reason not to celebrate Betty's 90th birthday on Sunday Dec 27th!
The signing of Betty's birthday card was organised by the 'Randall Sorting Office' and delivered by Richard who took the (socially-distanced, of course) picture and organised a well-attended Zoom session which contained a Betty-related quiz!!

Valentine Pairs
Valentine Pairs

Congratulations to Tad and Shirley who were the worthy winners of the Valentine Pairs competition on February 14th.

Although they were not the top scoring pair, they were the qualifying pair with the highest percentage. Congratulations to them both. And a big thank you to all 12 pairs who managed to arrange to partner someone of the opposite sex!!


SCCBA Charity Simultaneous Pairs - CONFIRMED Results

Well done to Stewart and Frank who are the highest-placed Crawley pair in this year's county Charity Sims - see SCCBA web-site for confirmed results and article.

Christmas Party

Our party on Friday 6th December was a very enjoyable affair.  We had interesting hands to play and a fantastic buffet provided by Mitchells Catering.

Our chosen charity collection this year was for St. Catherine’s Hospice.  We raised just under £280 which the club rounded up to £300 - see acknowledgment letter.  Thanks again to everyone for their generosity.

Big thanks are also due to Mervyn for his preparation beforehand and directing on the night, to Richard for all his hard work preparing the pairings - this has become a mammoth task as the club is now so large.  Thanks also to Betty for her negotiation of the food choices for the buffet and managing the drinks tickets, Peter for managing the collection and paying of bills and finally to Gordon for directing the cadet section.  We were also very fortunate to have a lot of help setting up and tidying at the end - many hands make light work!

Congratulations to the winners in the main section (10 tables) who were Alan & Hazel (East/West) and Elizabeth & Ralph (North/South) and to .....

..... the winners in the cadet section (5 tables) who were Sumi & Beryl (North/South) and Sue and the early-departing Penny (East/West).

And we’ll do it all again next year!!  Merry Christmas everyone.
