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 notice on the right for details).  BCL  can be used 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.

RESULTS - THE ERICA CURRIE & RICHARD CURRIE PAIRS

THE ERICA CURRIE & RICHARD CURRIE PAIRS RESULTS

First, a huge thank you to all who participated, all who donated, and to the club representatives who organised the various heats.  Thanks also to the directors, especially to John Spiers and Hilary Havelock who directed the Final and Plate and who had to cope with a number of difficulties yesterday afternoon (players losing connection etc).

Great news, the event raised £1,566 including gift aid for our local Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice, which is in much need of funds in these troubled times.  It is clear that the memory of Erica Currie & Richard Currie burns bright in our local bridge community.

Many congratulations to Loraine & Ian Rae, who won the overall Final with a score of 64%, and to Hilary Havelock & Jaqui Murphy who won the Plate with a score of 65% - a clean sweep from pairs qualifying from the Bourne Bridge Club heat!   The trophies will be engraved and presented to the winners in the near future.

Covid meant that we had again to hold the event online, less than ideal as our four participating clubs play on three different online platforms.  It will be so much better if we can return next year to a single day, face-to-face, Swiss Pairs competition, as we used to hold in the past.    Any suggestions about future events will always be welcome.

Kind regards,

Mike O'Donnell

FARNHAM BRIDGE CLUB SUPPORT FOR CHILDREN IN NEED

A huge thank you to all who participated in our ECATS Children in Need heat on 10th November and who made donations. Nationally, many thousands of bridge players participated in heats across well over 100 bridge clubs. Total donations so far are over £12,600. We had an excellent turn-out for our own heat, with 8 full tables, with Farnham bridge club member donations of £217, making our club one of the larger contributors nationally. Congratulations to Graham Davison and Gabriel Hearst, who finished top in our heat and an excellent 57th out of almost 1,300 pairs nationally who played in the Wednesday sims.

CLICK HERE for a list of teams, proposed draw and schedule of matches for the 2021/2022 Sylvis Rose Competition.  
Teams have been seeded, so that each division is as balanced as practical, plus I have taken into account teams preferences for match days.

The entry fee for each team is a modest £48 and this covers all Realbridge costs and EBU P2P costs.  Team captains are requested to pay this amount to Farnham Bridge Club by bank transfer, in advance of their first match.   Payment should be to  FARNHAM BRIDGE CLUB,  Sort Code 09-01-51, Account 65409304, reference SR plus captain surname.   (If you play in Farnham Realbridge duplicate sessions you are likely to already have this set up in your payments).
