Welcome to Doncaster Bridge Club
Club Closed due to Corona Virus

Notification of Club Closure

A number of players have indicated that they will not be participating in any club competitions until the Corona Virus issue has been resolved. Therefore it has been decided that the Club will close. The final playing session has been held in the Afternoon of Monday the 16th March. This closure will continue until further notice.



We welcome all bridge players to our warm and comfortable premises. Parking is available at the rear of the club accessed via the Doncaster Sports Club entrance. We run duplicate bridge sessions most afternoons and evenings. See "Where and when" under the "Information" tab on the left.

Our club is a private members' club providing extensive facilities for its members and visitors. These include a well-stocked bar and soft-drink refreshments. Our facilities also include disabled access via a ramp at the rear of the club and inside, a lift connecting the downstairs playing and social areas of the club to the upstairs playing area and kitchen facilities. Toilets (including toilets for the disabled) are situated on both floors of our premises.

We look forward to welcoming you to our club to join in and play our favourite card game. We also welcome enquiries from players looking for a 'half-way house' so that teams do not have to travel so far when needing to play that all important NICKO or other competition match.

Jean Hartley  R.I.P.

It is with great sadness that the Club announces the death of Jean Hartley. Over many years Jean was a loyal, popular member of the Club, regularly playing in weekly sessions, participating in teams, and attending many social events. She was a good player who really enjoyed the game and, at the Table always upheld the principles of good manners with her opponents. Here she is pictured with Chris Gilbert, who played alongside her for many years, winning the Seniors Cup 

Despite having to use a walking aid, Jean was an independent traveller who visited many countries by cruise ships, trains or planes. She brought back many fascinating stories of her trips abroad. Our sincere condolences from all at the Club go to her family at this time of great sadness. Cards may be sent to her son Ian at 33 Storey Street, Swinton, Mexbrough, S648QG. The funeral service will take will place in St Margarets Church, Swinton, at on Friday the 24th July.
