About the Club
About the Club

Hatfield Heath Bridge Club has been in existence for over 40 years. It originated in the homes of a group of friends in the neighbouring village of Little Hallingbury and expanded to the well appointed village hall at Hatfield Heath.

The objective of the club is to play competitive bridge in a friendly atmosphere.  We cater for different levels of skill, with the more experienced members playing in the main hall and newer players in a smaller room of 4 or 5 tables for a few months. When they feel ready to join with the main club they are assured of a warm welcome.

We have been operating our own version of the EBU’s Better Behaviour at Bridge since opening and the emphasis being upon friendliness, our Directors are instructed to interpret the rules (where possible) in the most lenient of ways.

Michael Shine (Chairman)




HHBC has started the Pairs League and the Handicap Pairs League as from 23rd September.  Results are on the website as usual. Anyone who was a member at the time of lockdown is automatically entered.  Those who have joined us since should contact Michael if they wish to be entered.



The club is, obviously, not meeting at the moment with no real idea of when we shall be able to meet again.   So the committee have decided to temporarily suspend the club activities and the Constitution as from the last date we met.  The situation and all rights of the members will be held in limbo until such date that we are able to restart.  At such date the club will resume as if it hadn’t been suspended.  From then onwards we shall run the club as normal and shall call an AGM as soon as is practicable.



Hatfield Heath club moved online from Wednesday 5th August.  Each week those playing must have registered and be online by 7.20 pm for a 7.30 pm start.  Registration starts at 5.30 pm.   If you haven't already informed Adrienne that you wish to play, please do so including your BBO username.

Conventions:  All the conventions played at the club must conform to what was the old EBU Level 3 General Licence.

This excludes some of the Level 4 conventions and some of the more complicated new conventions.

If unsure about your convention then please contact Michael about it on



Harlow Knights Bridge Club has set up a virtual club and have kindly invited HHBC members to join them to play online.  The sessions are on a Friday evening at 7.30 pm and should be finished well before 10 pm.


Any club member is also welcome to play in the Herts & Essex online club (Hatfield Heath Tuesday afternoon club) on the Bridge Base website on Tuesdays at 2 pm.  Contact Adrienne Tinn if you wish to join in.


Bridge Base Online

The clubs meet using Bridge Base Online.  If you are new to online bridge, you will find this short video very informative.

If you need further help in getting set up, email one of us and we will try to sort you out.

Getting the most from the Results

The results section of our new web site has lots of additional information on your personal performance on the night. It is obvious speaking to some of the members that they do not realise that this exists. So to help you get the most from the new results service, please click below to open the instructions on how to access this extra information.  You can also find what we used to call the 'Butler Rankings' for the teams' sessions.  These are now calculated using Cross-IMPs which Eddie assures us is a better way of doing it!
