Welcome to the Crawley Bridge Club web-site

The club meets on Wednesdays and Fridays for a 7:15 start at Grattons Indoor Bowls Club (off Grattons Drive in Three Bridges) to play duplicate pairs bridge in a friendly and comfortable atmosphere.  Occasionally, we have a teams or individual event. 

On Monday evenings at 7:15, we have an online BBO relaxed pairs session for less experienced players.  We also hold online teaching sessions for beginners and improvers.  Further information on relaxed and teaching sessions can be found on the Teaching page.

For more information and contacts, please refer to the Information pages.

2022 Sheila Becarevic Cup
2022 Sheila Becarevic Cup

Congratulations to the Men's team who retained the Sheila Becarevic Cup against the Ladies on Wednesday September 28th.  Many thanks to team captains Richard and Helen for raising teams of 24 which is the most we've ever had in this event.

P.S.  I've uploaded two sets of results to this site.  The main one uses Aggregate scoring (because that's what decided the winning team) but only the travellers are really meaningful.  The Aggregate results are used to determine the winning team by aggregating either the Men's or Ladies scores to find that the Men won with +8120.  The movement enabled each board to be played 6 times with the Ladies North/South and 6 times with the Men North/South.  The pair ranking list in this set of results is not very meaningful since it's very dependent on which pairs were lucky enough to get most of the big hands.

The other set of results uses Match Point scoring, just like on the average club night.  This pair ranking list is more meaningful than the Aggregate version as regards how well individual pairs did but it is based on an invalid pairs movement so it's not that meaningful.  Also, since it was Aggregate scoring that decided the winners and not Match Points, this pair ranking list is pretty irrelevant too.  Again, only the travellers can be relied upon.

Because there are only 2 teams, no Master Points are awarded.

Crawley's 50th Anniversary Party!

Congratulations to all at Crawley BC who held a party on Aug 10th to celebrate our golden jubilee.  We couldn’t let the queen have all the fun! With our inaugural meeting on 17th March 1972, this year marks 50 years of bridge for our little club and we are still going strong.  We even have a founding member (Tad) who still plays every week!

We celebrated with cake and Prosecco and lots of both! Special thanks to Sylvia S and Caroline for making all the cakes, Richard and Gordon for helping to organise the event, Helen for arranging the Prizes and Mervyn for directing the evening.

Congratulations to Christine N and Tad for winning North/South and to .....

....... Richard and Ann for winning East/West.

Our doors are always open to anyone who enjoys a game of bridge and we welcome new members and guests alike.

Cheers all,
Sam
