Welcome to Harlow Knights B C
Our Club
Our Club

Harlow Knights Bridge Club meets to play duplicate bridge on-line every Friday evening. We play online on both BBO and RealBridge, and we play pairs and teams. 

Founded in the 1970s, the club was originally known as ‘Harlow Non-Smokers’ but we changed our name to Harlow Knights when smoking became less of an issue and to honour Ray Knight, one of the founders of the club. We welcome all players hoping to improve their game and wishing to join a club where they will be encouraged in a friendly atmosphere. We would like to inspire all our members to improve their standard, and we support them to go on and play in County and National events.  

We are affiliated to both the EBU and the Hertfordshire Bridge Association.

Ian Kemp, Chairman

Important changes for 2023-4

There are important changes at the club starting in April 2023, including -

  • The proportion of sessions we play on BBO and RealBridge (RB) respectively
  • The programme for the year, and the competitions
  • The way we pay for bridge sessions

We will be increasing the number of RB sessions, whilst retaining BBO pairs for those who can’t play on RB.  We are re-introducing regular monthly teams sessions, played on the 2nd Friday of the month as before. All teams sessions will be played on RB. We are also increasing the number of pairs sessions played on RB; there will be RB pairs on the 4th Friday of the month. So it will be BBO on the 1st & 3rd Fridays, and RB on the 2nd & 4th. There is occasionally a 5th Friday in the month and we will aim to use these for one-off trophies and special events, which may be on BBO or RB.

We will increase the number of league competitions to match the changes in the platforms we play on, and have handicap leagues for all of them. More detail of the programme and the competitions is available on the menu tabs on the left. 

We are completely changing the way you will pay for your sessions, which should make things much more straightforward for members. You will no longer pay a BBO charge in dollars when you play, and you will not have to pay for RB through the website before you play. Instead we are asking members to pay a regular amount direct into the club’s bank account, and we will take the table money out of your balance and send you a statement at the end of the month. You will be able to play even if you have no credit, but we will ask you to top it up afterwards. Details of how to pay and how to login to play can be found on the How to pay and play online tab on the left menu.

Visitors are welcome, but must pay in advance. As before, we expect visitors to join the club after three games as a visitor. 

Finding a partner

We do not offer a hosting service but if you need a partner for a particular evening we will try to find one for you. Please contact us on harlowknightsbridgeclub@gmail.com - preferably by Weds - and we will email around to other members to ask if anyone is available. You must be willing to give your contact details (either a phone number or an email) so that people may contact you direct.
