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.

Q++ Please Support Carol Hulse and the Charity Blood Cancer UK +++

Carol and Bob Hulse are taking part in the Walk of Light, a night-time walk on the evening of 27th March, to raise money for the charity Blood Cancer UK.  Carol has asked us to tell you that their support through research has kept her going for the last 20 years.  If you would like to support Carol and Bob by making a donation to this very worthwhile cause, please do this through Carol’s Just Giving page here:

Grantham Virtual Bridge Club

Bridge Base Online (BBO) We run duplicate pairs session every Tuesday evening at 6.45 pm and a Gentle Duplicate pairs session every Wednesday mornings at 9.45am.  RealBridge We run duplicate pairs session (no more than 18 boards) every Thursday afternoon at 1.45pm. The cost is £2.50 per session billed monthly in arrears, (no need to buy BBO$).

Results will be available on the website soon after the session has finished. We are asking members to register to play in the Grantham Virtual Bridge Club.  Registration will cost £5 and, when we eventually get back to playing at Barrowby, this will be taken off your normal annual membership fee. Non-members are welcome to play in the Grantham Virtual Bridge Club and can do so by clicking on this link to the Membership Application Form completing the form and paying the £5 registration fee, they will then become members of Grantham Virtual Bridge Club.

Bridge Base Online (BBO) is free to join and many of the games are free to play, although BBO also run tournaments that you have to pay for if you want to play in them. RealBridge has built-in video and sound, bringing the true face-to-face experience online. No installation or registering is required - we send you a link, just click, sit down and play.

If you are unsure about playing online, we are happy to run some sessions to help you get comfortable playing in the online environment - just email us and take a look at the HELP SECTIONS in the right hand column here.
