Welcome to Harlow Knights B C
Our Club
Our Club

Harlow Knights Bridge Club meets to play duplicate pairs bridge on-line every Friday evening and will continue to play in this fashion until such time as our usual venue, Cooks Spinney School in Harlow, reopens and Government rules on indoor meetings allow us to resume.

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.

Geoff Vowles, Chairman

AGM 2020-21 to take place 6.45pm on 28th May

We will be holding our AGM on 28th May, open to all members. As happened last year, this will be on Zoom. We will start at 6.45pm before our normal 7.30pm evening online session. We would be very pleased if you can attend, but if you are not able to then please send us your proxy voting form. 

The formal notice of the meeting, the agenda papers and the proxy voting forms will be posted here shortly, and will also be sent out by email. Details of how to join the Zoom meeting will be included in the email.

Teams matches against other clubs

Well done and thanks to the 28 Harlow Knights players who have represented the club in our first two online teams matches against St Albans and Bath. A good time was had by all, and we managed to win both matches! We may organise further matches in the New Year – all strengths of players can be included, please let the club know if you’re interested.


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.


Scores and results

We aim to publish results on our website and submit to the EBU website on the same day as we play, or by the following Monday at the latest. If you have a query about a score, please let the scorer know as soon as possible.

The results section of our web site has lots of additional information on your own individual performance. To help you get the most from this results service please click Accessing personal performance information.pdf to open the instructions on how to access this extra information.
