Congratulations to Richard and Dave who came 2nd in this event out of 84 pairs.

New HBA Competition - Sunday 21st November

The HBA is running a new competition aimed at less experienced and social players.

The competition is restricted to players with an NGS grade of 7 and under.

It will be held on RealBridge on Sunday 21st November starting at 2 p.m.

18 boards will be played at a relaxed pace.

It is FREE for all HBA members though pairs will have to pre-enter via the HBA website.

Can I encourage all Hitchin members who fit the criterion to take part. 


Beginners Bridge Course

The Club hopes to resume its beginners course in the Autumn of 2021.

This is of course dependent on government restrictions being lifted to allow community groups and clubs to meet indoors. 

If you are interested in learning to play when we can meet again around bridge tables please email Margaret or call 01462 623447.

We will keep your contact details and get in touch when details of the course are finalised.

It would be appreciated if members could advertise on all local social media groups in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.
