Welcome

Welcome to Farnham Bridge Club.  We play at the Maltings on most Wednesdays and Fridays.

Welcome to Farnham Bridge Club
WELCOME

Farnham Bridge Club is regarded as one of the premier clubs in the area with members from other towns in the Waverley Borough, West Surrey and North East Hampshire. It is affiliated to the Surrey County Bridge Association (SCBA) and the English Bridge Union (EBU). Visitors and potential new members are always welcome. Email our secretary Joyce Baldock (joycebaldock@btinternet.com) in advance for details.

Members can enjoy playing duplicate Contract Bridge in accordance with the EBU rules and EBU membership is now included.

Bridge is currently being played online using RealBridge for our main club sessions (see below) and also BCL for those who wish to play individual pairs or club league games.

DUE TO COVID-19 FARNHAM BRIDGE CLUB HAS CANCELLED ALL FACE TO FACE BRIDGE SESSIONS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

BRIDGE CLUB LIVE

It's recommended you read the Player Guide and sign up to one of their free Taster Sessions using this link https://realbridge.online/try-realbridge.html. There are generally one or two games available at a UK friendly time.

WHERE TO SIT:  You are free to sit wherever you wish, but please avoid TABLE 1 EW for the director.
