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.
