We are an EBU club and part of the Leicestershire CBA. We play club duplicate bridge, teams and other competitions. During the COVID 19 pandemic we have temporarily suspended our usual face to face sessions. We now run a Virtual Online Bridge Club using both Bridge Base Online (BBO) and RealBridge. New members and visitors are welcome, but please contact us first.
