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.

Success at KCBA / EBU Easter Improvers Pairs!

SCCBA Stepping Stone Pairs on Sunday March 7th

Many congratulations to Kriss and June who won today’s county Stepping Stone Pairs event held online and organised by Jane Handley of Horsham Bridge Club. This event was specifically held for those new to bridge and with fewer than 5 years playing experience.  There were 44 pairs playing but only 3 from Crawley.  So, more congratulations go to David and Jane who were 5th and to Phil and Stuart Nash who were a very respectable 15th.  What a fantastic showing from Crawley Bridge Club!

You can see the full results on the Sussex web-site.

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!
