Playing Face-to-Face and Online

The Best of Both Worlds!

Since February 2022, we've been able to put Covid restrictions behind us and return to playing face-to-face bridge on Tuesday evenings in the village hall.

We're also playing RealBridge online on Friday evenings. This is a collaboration with the Clevedon & Portishead club, which is called 'Woodspring Online'.

These sessions are primarily run for members of either club and their invited
guests - 
but we're a friendly bunch, always open to contact from other
like-minded people who play bridge for enjoyment, no matter where they live.
Please click here for more information and advice and then here to
 send us a message if you'd like to talk about joining us.

You can click here to go to the Calendar page, where you'll find a link to the next
RealBridge session
(shown as RealBridge Login) once it's been set up.

Introduction and General Information
Introduction and General Information

Welcome to the website of the

 

  Kingston Seymour   Bridge Club

We hope you'll find it both interesting and informative.

--------------

The club meets in the Village Hall, Kingston Seymour, near Clevedon, where duplicate bridge is played once a week on a Tuesday evening, starting at 7:00pm - although we ask players to arrive by 6:50pm so that the number of tables and movement can be established and play started promptly.

We usually play 24 boards, free tea and coffee is available through the evening and aim to be packed up and out of the hall by 10:30pm at latest.

We use computer generated hands and BridgeTabs electronic scoring devices.  Results are usually available at the end of the evening and are also published on this website, together with hand records and optimum contract information.

We like to think of ourselves as being a pretty friendly bunch, with an enjoyable evening being as important (and more achievable for most of us!) as topping the table.

Table money is £2.00 for members and £3.00 for guests and visitors, with the tea, coffee included at no additional charge.


Visitors and prospective new members are always welcome but we do ask that they contact one of our committee members (whose details are in the 'club information' section) in advance - in order to check we'll have room for them and to enter their details in our electronic scoring system!

We are affiliated to the English Bridge Union (EBU) via the Somerset Contract Bridge Association (SCBA) and as such all of our members are entitled to the benefits of EBU membership as described here.

Master points are awarded for all events except improvers evenings.

Adam Wiseberg and Paul Gipson have each produced some excellent YouTube videos which can help with many aspects of using BBO - from initial registration through to the complexities of creating a team match and using sample hands for a teaching session.

You can click here to see Adam's videos and here to see Paul's.

Our thanks to Adam and Paul for creating these videos and for allowing us to use them.
