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.

Andrew Thompson (1949 - 2019)

It is with great sadness the club has to announce the death of Andrew Thompson, at the age of 69. He had been in hospital in Birmingham for some time. He was a long-standing member of the club, having been Secretary in the 1970's and a Committee Member up to the date of his death. There is a fuller tribute by Ian Payn at https://www.ebu.co.uk/biographies/andrew-thompson

Important Information

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.
