Date for Your Diary - July 21st. 7 pm, at the CLUB

 Following the recent Government announcement on relaxation of lockdown rules, the London Duplicate Bridge Club will be resuming face-to-face games at the usual central London venue,  the Civil Service Club, Great Scotland Yard, London SW1A  2HU, on Wednesday 21st July. 
 Bridge will commence as always at 7.30pm, but to welcome everyone back on 21st July we’d love it if you’d come a little earlier at 7.00pm when the club will be providing a voucher for a free welcome drink (wine, beer, or other drink of your choice) and some hot snacks. In order to help ensure we have sufficient food ordered, it would be really helpful if you could let us know asap if you intend to play on 21st July, and who your partner will be.  RSVP click here.
 As always, if you wish to partner a non-member playing as a visitor to the club, then we’d be delighted to welcome them. 
 In line with the relaxation of guidelines from 19th July, the CSC will not require wearing of face masks and neither will the LDBC. 
 Please note that our virtual club on BBO, which many of you have supported so strongly, will be suspended as we re-establish our face-to-face games. 
coolWe hope to see as many of you as possible on 21st July.

Beat the Covid Blues - Play Online

We have regrettably had to suspend our Bridge at the club until further notice, moving to playing online since March 2020.  You might like to join our friendly and competitive virtual EBU club on Bridge Base Online at 7:30 p.m. every Wednesday.  First time visitors and non-members are welcome. Look for Pairs London Duplicate

If you don’t have a BBO account, you can open one quickly and easily. Just go to, register and purchase some BBO dollars.

If you are playing with us for the first time OR wish to use our partner finding service, click here.

CANCELLED Dorothy Shanahan Championship Pairs 2020

With apologies... we have had to cancel the event this year.  We hope to run the event - in the usual face to face format - next year, and we look forward to seeing you all at the club before too long.



Bridge in Central London
Bridge in Central London

The London Duplicate Bridge Club is one of the oldest bridge clubs in central London.

We play every Wednesday evening (except some in late December and early January) at the Civil Service Club, Great Scotland Yard, London SW1A 2HJ. Play starts at 7:30 p.m. The Civil Service Club is very convenient for all forms of public transport, being just yards from Trafalgar Square and Charing Cross station.

Details about the LDBC

If you want to come along one Wednesday you might like to call Nigel Bruce on 020 7622 6436 who will arrange for your name to be put on our guest list. Otherwise, why not just turn up and see us. At present we do not operate a rota list for partners, but partners are always available if you come alone. There are usually players in the downstairs bar from 7:00 p.m. - the door staff will point us out. Introduce yourself - we look forward to seeing you ....

We are keen to welcome new members of all standards (except absolute beginners) to our friendly sociable evenings. Knowledge of duplicate, bidding boxes, etc. is expected, but we do have some relatively inexperienced members. It is not necessary to be a member of the Civil Service Club to play or enjoy its facilities on a Wednesday when joining us. The Civil Service Club has an excellent bar offering a full range of drinks at very reasonable prices. There is also a snack-bar for those who want something to eat before the game.
