About Our Club
About Our Club

Goring & Streatley Bridge Club is a small and friendly club that meets once a week to play competitive (ie duplicate) bridge. We normally have about 10 tables each time we meet and play in Goring Village Hall on most Mondays (including bank holidays) in the year. We start playing at 7.00pm and aim to finish by 10.00pm, having played 24 hands. Our players mostly come from the twin villages of Goring and Streatley, and from the neighbouring towns and villages such as Pangbourne, Upper Basildon, Whitchurch and Wallingford.

We welcome visitors at any time of the year, and, in summer, we are particularly pleased to see bridge players who are enjoying a boating holiday on the River Thames. Goring Village Hall is situated 100 yards from the River Thames that separates the villages of Goring and Streatley in the picturesque Goring Gap (see picture above). If you do intend to pay us a visit please let the club secretary know beforehand. The club secretary's telephone number is published on the 'Committee' page on this website.
