Welcome to Hutton Bridge Club
Coronavirus

FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTIONS FROM HM GOVERNMENT, THE CLUB WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. A GREAT SHAME, BUT NECESSARY AS PART OF OUR COLLECTIVE FIGHT AGAINST THE PANDEMIC. HOWEVER ...

The On-Line club will meet each Monday at 19:30 until face-to-face bridge reappears. Click on this box for information on how to enter. Table money of 3$ is collected via your BBO account. 

To ensure a prompt start, please register your intention to play on BBO by 19:00, and ensure your $BBO account has sufficient funds!!

Cath Fox has had an excellent article on bridge during Covid-19, naturally focusing on the blossoming of the on-line game, published today (26th July) in the Sunday Express magazine: Read it here! Some bloke called Tony French gets a mention. 

Club Introduction
Club Introduction

The main club sessions are at 19:30 every Monday and Wednesday (public holidays excepted) in the reception area of:-

Becket Keys School (formerly Sawyer's Hall College)
Sawyer's Hall Lane
Brentwood
Essex CM15 9DA.

See the "Information" page for directions: please take care using the postcode on your SatNav as it may take you on a wild goose chase up the Ongar Road.  

We are a friendly medium-sized club and are very welcoming of guests or visitors on all occasions. As well as the weekly club duplicate we host special events such as the Club Championship, EBU and Charitable Simultaneous Pairs, the Fledgling Fours and a Christmas party. We also have a welcoming and active social scene with an annual weekend holiday. The first Wednesday session of each month is known as 'Friendly First Wednesday' and is especially suited to the less experienced.

If new to the game you may learn to play bridge with us, we also offer coaching and mentoring and a Play and Learn session on Monday afternoons.

The club fields teams in all the major Essex and some national competitions and has been known to do well, please follow the menu buttons on the left for more information.

With great sadness, we are sorry to bring you the news of the passing of Alan Gardner. He died on March 31st 2020, from natural causes that were unrelated to Coronavirus.

Alan, who was a regular player on Wednesdays with his partner David Watt, brought a smile to everyone and he will be greatly missed by all at the club.

Our thoughts at this time particularly go out to his widow, Sandra.
