Welcome to The Monday Club, Battersea
Face to Face Bridge starting August 9th, at 7.30 pm

We are re-opening for face to face play at 7:30 on Monday August 9th.

We will be following government guidelines and will not be insisting on any new regulations. However, we would ask that people are considerate of each other. Please bring a mask and if a player at any particular table seems really uncomfortable with people not being masked, please be prepared to  cooperate. There is hand sanitiser everywhere at the club and we will keep the back doors open. If you want to bring your own bidding box, that is fine. 

We don’t yet have any facility to go cashless and nor does the BLC. So table money (£4:00) and drinks will need to be paid for in cash. It would be a great help to Marcia if you could have the correct money! Please bring mobiles or tablets if you have them. We will using BriAn scoring system which needs wifi.

At a future date to be announced soon, we will provide welcome back drinks and snacks – watch this space!

Do come along and help us get back to normal.

With great regret we have to bow to the inevitable (I bet Boris Johnson has never been called that!) and close the club until we are clear of the dreaded virus. We wish our members good health - don't catch it, but if you do, may it be mild, followed by swift recovery.

In the meantime, you can get your fix playing online. Try the following:

Invitation from Woodberry BC

The Woodberry Bridge Club run duplicate bridge sessions on BBO (pairs, MP scoring, 18 boards, table money BBO$4 per person) on Tuesday evenings (7.30 pm). In addition they will be running 5 trial pairs' sessions on Sunday afternoons at 4 pm, throughout January 2021. The club has a host system so any partnerless player is guaranteed a game. Every session will be followed by a social Zoom meeting to chat and discuss the hands.

Monday Club members are invited to try the Tuesday and/or Sunday sessions for limited periods of time without any Woodberry membership requirements. If you feel like more bridge (different days/times), please contact me for further details.

Competitions running throughout the year

The Salver is a pairs competition held over twelve months, normally on the first Monday of each month. On each evening, all pairs finishing above halfway score points depending on their position. For each pair, only the best six scores achieved during the year will count. Prizes awarded to the first six pairs.

The Goblet is an individual competition held over the year, January to the first half of December.

All match-pointed pairs events other than first Mondays or Club Championships count towards this  On each evening, both players of each pair finishing above halfway score points according to their rank.   The competition is designed to encourage members to mix and play with different partners. It is therefore based on a member's best ten scores, but no more than two scores count with any one partner.  A member playing with a non-member is still eligible to score points. Prizes:   Awarded to members finishing in the top six positions.

Improver's Prize is a new competition running all year February to December; it will include all sessions played at the club  (minimum 15). The person with the highest percentage increase in their NGS score will be judged the winner. Prizes for the first six.


The Monday Club is happy to be able to offer tuition thanks to one of its members, Kit Jackson.

Meet at Bedford pub in Bedford hill – a great venue for friendly bridge. Monday Mornings: Social Bridge. All standards welcome, including novices and improvers.
