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.

CLUB TEAMS COMPETITION
After a fiercely fought competition, Team Tinn came out winners with the final placings dependent on Team Tinn and Team Cirket perfoming well in the final session of the season. An overall win by Team Cirket with a placing lower than third by the Tinns would have given the Cirkets the title. As it turned out, both teams had lower than their usual placings and so Team Tinn stayed at the top of the table.
Well done to all who played in the competition. Final placings can be found under Competitions.
CADET PAIRS FINAL
Congratulations to Kay Vowles and Suman Rai for winning the Cadet Pairs final in Welwyn on Friday 12th April. It was a very close competition with Kay and Suman taking first place just as the result from the last table was entered. Another entry from the club, Liz Jordan playing with her partner, Christine Hope, came a respectable 7th.
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!
NEW IMPROVERS' CLASSES START IN SEPTEMBER
