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.  Or, you can just turn up on the nght. At present we do not operate a rota list for partners, but partners are always available if you would like one. 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 ....

New members of all standards (except absolute beginners) are welcome to our friendly sociable evenings. Knowledge of duplicate, bidding boxes, etc. is expected, but our members do vary in their levels of proficiency at the game. You do not need 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 bar food available for those who want something to eat before the game.

Tony Clark (1945 - 2022)

It is with great sadness the club has to announce the death, after a long illness, of Dr Tony Clark, at the age of 76. He was our Chairman for two periods, from the 1980's until 2014, when he retired from bridge due to ill-health and moved to Hastings. Tony began his bridge career at Cambridge where he played in the 1967 team that, after winning the Varsity match went on to win the Universities Cup. With his long-term partner, Steve Burton, Tony represented England very successfully at both junior and senior levels. They were also regularly successful in major national competitions. Also, Tony successfully steered the LDBC through a number of changes of venue. Playing with Andrew Thompson, he won the inaugural LDBC Shanahan Pairs in 2011. We send our deepest condolences to his family. There is a fuller tribute by Kent CBA at https://www.bridgewebs.com/kent/Tony%20Clark.pdf
