While we are waiting for our new premises, we are now running sessions on REALBRIDGE - see the centre column for details.

Welcome to Ditton Bridge Club

Congratulations to Howard Horner, Andy Collins, Alison Nagle and Janis Fletcher who won the 2021-2 Club Teams Championship on Tuesday 10th May 2022.  Owing to the Swiss format used for the competition they had to keep on playing their nearest rivals - Adam Emerson, Peter Tingle, Fay Grayer and Steve Back, who held on well for second place, and who have since come 3rd equal in Surrey's Wanborough Cup (tournament of Club Teams champions).


Congratulations to Steve Back and Fay Grayer who won the 2021-2 Club Pairs Championship.  Ann Ingel and Christine Garner (the highest ranked pair neither of whom have an NGS rating of higher than 8) win the Plate.


The Ditton Bridge Team of Ken Wilshire, Marion Hart, Andrew Bannock and John Dagnall has recently come runners-up in the Plate Competition of Surrey Contract Bridge Assocations's annual Lady Rose teams knock-outs.  This follows a different Ditton team having also come runners-up in the Plate in the previous year.  We hope to do better in the coming year!


Congratulations to Steve Back and Fay Grayer for winning the Autumn 2021 Tuesday heat of the Surrey CBA Dorin Salver charity simultaneous pairs with the highest percentage when it was scored across Surrey.


Many people will know Realbridge already; but, for those that don’t, it’s an online platform where you can see your partner and opponents and talk to them as in face to face bridge. The bidding is more realistic than, say, BBO. Realbridge uses the camera and microphone and speakers from your computer so it’s essential to test the equipment in advance. Modern computers should be fine, but Ipads need to be less than five years old.  You can test your equipment at RealBridge with Real People please scroll to the camera section and you will see a link to test your equipment. For Realbridge there is no username and password as in BBO. The day before the session we will send a link that you click through and just join the game.

We are very grateful for the assistance which we have received from our friends at Caterham BC (and who hold sessions every Tuesday) but are now running our own sessions.

The pricing is £3.00 per session or £10 for a set of four.  Obviously, we cannot collect table money on the night, so we need to make other arrangements. Please endeavour to pay by transfer into the bank, if that is not possible please hand the cash to Red when the opportunity arises. The bank details are:

The evenings will be EBU sessions with masterpoints and NGS.

Undos are allowed in the bidding for genuine misclicks (either agree with opponents or call the director) but not in principle during the play (however if all decide to agree then call the director for their discretion).

If you have any questions or queries (technical or otherwise) please contact John Dagnall (02083984463 or Peter Tingle.
