Welcome Back!
Welcome Back!

We have restarted face-to-face bridge on Monday evenings and Friday afternoons!   In order to attend, you need to have confirmed to the Membership Secretary that you are double-jabbed. 

Please note we will not be collecting table money at our events - see "We've Gone Cashless" below.

Tuesday evenings will continue to be hosted on RealBridge. 

Mondays Club Pairs are at 7:30pm at Harpenden Common Golf Club, Cravells Road, East Common, Harpenden AL5 1BL. The more relaxed Friday afternoon games are at 2pm in the Scout Hall in Kinsbourne Green.

We have also reinstatied Monday afternoon post-mortem sessions and lessons for beginners will kick-off in October. Both of these will be in the Harpenden Trust Hall, Southdown.

For face-to-face sessions, table fees are £3 for members; online sessions are charged at £1.50.  Sadly, visiting pairs cannot be accommodated, but members are welcome to play with a guest in any of the sessions. Visitors' fees are an extra £1 and the member will be responsible for paying it. Note additional charges may apply to visitors for special events such as Sims where we have to pay additional entry fees to the EBU.

We've gone Cashless!

If you have not been playing in our RealBridge events, you may be unaware that we have gone cashless. Instead we are asking members to pay by bank transfer to the club's account. This operates as follows:

- you pay nothing when you play

- at the end of each quarter, we email you a statement that itemises all the sessions you've played in during the last three months and shows how much is due

- we can set your bill up to include another member's fees e.g. to create a single bill for married couples

- if a member plays with a visitor, their fees will be included on the member's bill 

Beginning Bridge Course

We are planning to restart the bridge lessons from Thursday 7th October. The lessons will run until the end of March and will be every Thursday (except a short break at Christmas) at 2pm to 4pm at the Trust Hall in Southdown. If you have done the course before, please note the change of venue).

No prior knowledge is needed, and no equipment necessary. The course will include a “textbook” which will be yours and you are free to annotate as you wish.

We expect the fee for the course to be £100 including the book, or £80 for those who already have it. We will not take any money until nearer the start of the course in case circumstances change, but we would like to know numbers as we may need to limit them - previous courses have been full. Please let me know as soon as possible if you would like to sign up.
