Partners

If you are seeking a partner(s) for pairs or teams either post a message on the 'Bookings/Find a Partner?' page or contact Alex Buchan (see Contact Us)

On Wednesday afternoon and evening  a host system is in operation, so you can turn up without a partner and get a game.

Welcome to Eastbourne Bridge Club
About Us

We welcome visitors and we have club members willing to help with finding partners, see the Join Us page. We run events to suit every level of player, and as we are an EBU club, Master Points are awarded at every event. On most Wednesday evenings and afternoons the club operates a hosting system so anyone is guaranteed a game, for other times see the Partners box on this page. The Calendar shows the host's name. Our popular Swiss Pairs are on the second and fourth Friday at 7.00 pm. Whilst our popular Random Teams operates on the 2nd Tuesday evening at 7.30. We run lessons for beginners and improvers, which have proved to be very popular - see the Lessons page. Because we can provide pre-dealt hands, the learning is mainly through playing. We are now expanding our teaching programme to include a new Fast Track course on Saturday morning - details on the lesson page.

We have a large membership and at least seven duplicate sessions each week. For details see our Calendar. By number of players playing, we were ranked number 1 in Sussex and number 14 nationally in 2017/8 by the EBU.( Up 3 )

The Calendar gives the current program of events and start times. Please help us by arriving at least ten minutes before the start of play, since we use ScoreBridge and Bridgemates to record the scores and this has to be programmed with the movement before the start. Once this is started, it is difficult to amend. This computer based scoring enables us to provide results within minutes of the close of play.  

The Club Etiquette is in the Best Behaviour section. Eastbourne Bridge Club Etiquette and Procedure.pdf

Our Location

We have two large comfortable air conditioned rooms that are set up for bridge. The Club is located on the first floor of the Royal Air Forces Association, 11 Wish Road, Eastbourne, BN21 4NX, see the map below for details.  A chair lift is available for those who need it. If using a satnav, check that you have 11 Wish Road.

 We send out emails to all members to inform them about what is happening in the club. If you are not receiving these, it is because you have clicked unsubscribe or junk (either deliberately or inadvertently). The club does not have the power to change that, only you have the power to change that status. See Re-subscribe

 Calendar corrections: The Christmas party is on Sunday 8th December starting at 2.00 (NOT the 1st as in the printed Calendar). The AGM is on Thursday 9th July 2020.

Details of the Club Christmas party can be found in the News section. Note that this is a members only event. Please give your menu choices when you buy the tickets. Bridge Club Christmas Poster 2019.pdf  Bridge Club Christmas Menu 2019.pdf  Christmas opening times are given in the Calendar section. Bridge Club Christmas opening times 2019 AND 20.pdf

   The next Mini Swiss pairs is on Friday  13TH December 2019  at 7.00 pm. and the next Random Teams is on Tuesday 10th December 2019 at 7.30 pm.  Please sign up in the club for these events (just first names may not be enough unless yours is unique).  

  The second Monday afternoon of the month is now Simple Systems (EBU level 2), but unlike Tuesday a partner is needed.

  ♣   The Thursday supervised play session is intended for players who are new to the game and are learning, so that help is available. The Friday supervised play session is open to all players at 2pm, and again help is available and no master points are awarded, with a minimum of 21 boards played.  No partner is needed for any of these sessions or the Tuesday Afternoon Simple Systems Session at 1.30pm, which only allows a basic system (EBU level 2) and awards masterpoints (See Tuesday Afternoon Points in Competitions).

See the Links page for Vu-Bridge Hand of the Week and Beginner's Corner. You can play the hands - they are interactive.
