We aim to have a host at every session to cater for people who need a partner. To do this, we need volunteers. Please enter your name onto the Programme at the Club, or contact Marcia Marriott at 07908 586260.
If you offer to host, you get a free game on the day (if you play) or the next time you attend. If no host is named for the session you want to attend, please be aware that if no other individuals turn up without a partner, you may not get a game.
FreeBriAn - the bridge scoring app - can be loaded onto your smartphone / ipad / android tablet and brings instant scores and analysis to your device after every hand.

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 eight 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.
