Welcome to Grantham Bridge Club

We are an EBU club playing duplicate bridge. We welcome all standards of players and run sessions on Monday and Tuesday evenings at the Barrowby Sports Pavilion and on Wednesday morning at Barrowby Reading Room. We play in the Leicestershire League and currently run two teams. New members and visitors are welcome but please contact us first.

Dates for your diary:
Christmas Parties on the evening of Tuesday 17 December 2019 and morning of Wednesday 18 December 2019.
As usual we will have a buffet and a fun bridge session, with lots of prizes.

A committee meeting was held on 7 November, the minutes are available under the Information tab

We are looking at raising money for a new electronic scoring system along with a laptop following the successful introduction of the Bridgemates.

The Beginners course run by Ian and John is proving very successful and many are coming back for another session after Christmas.  Following that we are putting on some supervised play after Easter to help the beginners to gain confidence in practising their bridge.

We are always looking for volunteers to help within the club. If you are interested please speak to a Committee member.

Congratulations to Bill and June who were the highest placed pair in the recent Children in Need Sim Pairs.

Finally, if you are looking for a partner, try using the “Find a Partner” facility.

You can either let others know that you are wanting a partner, or register that you need a partner for a specific bridge session.
