We are really sad to announce the unexpected passing of Ray Fiveash who has served on the Bridge Committee for several years.

Our thoughts are very much with his wife Di and children George and Bethan, to whom we offer any support that we are able to give.

Further details will be announced in due course.

On Thursday 16th May we had 17 teams at our Annual Charity Event. We raised £2,220 for Beanstalk/The Oaks Primary School in Druids Heath to help provide literacy support for young children.

Big congratulations to the winner, Ann Dawes with 3,490 points... who wins her own trophy (The Ann Dawes Trophy).

Runner-up was visitor and ex-member Carol Dainty with 3,350 points and third was Sue Bowman with 2,980 points.

The Team Winners were 'The Jams' with 10,740 points. The four members of the winning team were Ann Dawes, Scilla Carney, Janice Wainwright and Sue Bowen.

Second came the 'The Forbidding Fourbidders' team with 8,700 points (Effie Richards, Amy Innes, Jan Rodrigo and Robert Nock) followed by 'The Dainty Taylors' with 8,520 points (Dylis and Andy Taylor with guest Carol and Dan Dainty).

We have many people to thank for making the evening a great success:

  • Bridge players, other EPC members and local suppliers... who donated prizes for the raffle
  • Roger Florey and his team... the auction for your gardening services will not be forgotten thanks to Di Fiveash making bids which frightened the auctioneer (husband Ray!)
  • Ronnie Shoebotham who donated/spent a huge sum in our auction to secure Roger's services
  • Barbara and others who helped sell a huge amount of raffle tickets
  • The many player "cake bakers" who did us proud and
  • Levy... who donated our teas and coffees.

On the evening we were joined for the second year running by the EPC Chairman (David) and Chair of Tennis (Ed) joining in and hope they will continue to join in again.

The EPC Bridge Club


The Edgbaston Priory Bridge Club

Welcome to the EPC bridge club.

We are primarily a private member's racquets and fitness club, with a historic and proud connection to lawn tennis.

Bridge has been played at the club for over 40 years (see the 'timeline' menu section) and is a thriving and growing activity at the club.

We aim to support both learners and regular players, and host fun charity events and weekends away.

EPC Bridge Vision Statement


"To encourage and enable members to enjoy playing bridge and add value to the membership experience.

We will provide access to the game for beginners and help intermediate and good players to improve their skills through lessons up to and including competition level.

Bridge at the EPC will provide fun and foster friendship."


The EPC Bridge Committee, 2017
