Welcome to Mountnessing BC
Club Re-Opened - For Free Bridge!!

To celebrate the re-opening of the Club, there will be no table money charged during September 2021. Come along and enjoy your F2F bridge for free!

Also, the Committee has decided that - when charged - table money for Visitors will be the same as that for Members during the period when the Membership fee is waived.

Club AGM: Thursday 2nd September 2021 - Key Points

Firstly, a big 'thank you' to all those members who attended the AGM on Thursday - and special thanks to those who volunteered to fill gaps on the committee.

Committee appointments: John McCoy (Chair), Nick Hagan (Vice-Chair), Linda Fleet (Treasurer), Theo Todman (Secretary; also Website), John Sutcliffe, Mike Harbour

Fees for 2021/22: No membership fee, Table Money remains at £2.50. Additionally, the 37 members who paid £10 for their 2020/21 membership before the club became dormant in March 2020 will be offered two alternative ways of receiving a refund; members to whom this point applies will be contacted through a follow-up email.

Covid Precautions: Anyone entering Mountnessing Village Hall is bound by the Hall's Covid mitigation measures. Additionally, it was agreed to adopt the same Bridge-specific measures as are in place for the Tuesday night Mayflower Club. The rules are here

Cath Fox has asked all ECBA clubs to display an advertisement for a new website and initiative for Youth Bridge. Click here for what it has to say, and follow the onward links, including those detailing local activities. While not of direct relevance to members, this is an important initiative, and members may have children or - more likely - grandchildren, who might enjoy the game. Or friends with the same. If the game is to survive, it needs new blood.

Find a partner scheme

If you are looking for a partner, you have three basic options:

  • Log in to the Members' Area where you can view current contact details for all members, and you can optionally send email(s) to players of interest to you (see the panel below about 'Accessing the Members' Area if necessary); or
  • Use the on-line partner matching service available through this website (see the panel below about 'Accessing the Members' Area if necessary); the advantage of this method is that your request is posted immediately though the disadvantage is that you may need to wait for other players to see the post; or
  • Send an email to This action will result in an email being sent to potential partners, though there could be a delay as such action triggers a manual process.

Accessing the (password protected) Membership Area

If you have not already done so, please click on the 'Membership' menu item, then follow the instructions.  Enter your email address as your 'name' and then press 'Forgotten Password'.  You will then receive an email with a password that will enable you to log into the membership area.  NB You MUST use the email address by which the club recognises you, e.g., the one to which Secretary sends you club-related messages.  Once you have registered on the system in this way, you will be able to log into the membership area, where several services are open to you:

  • You can view the current club membership list, on which you can find your 'Club ID', which serves as your personal 'short-code' for the wireless scoring system. 
  • You can also register that you are seeking a partner.  Note that in the Calendar summary to the right of this pane, if you spot the message Partner? then it means that at least one potential partner is available;  if you spot the message Bookings then it means that at least one partnership has been arranged - but there could be another partner available.  Click on the Partner? or Bookings message to reveal details.
  • You can also access documents that are restricted to club members, such as, the agenda and papers for the Club's AGM

Our Club in brief...
Our Club in brief...

We are a friendly medium sized (usually 8 - 12 tables) bridge club that meets every Thursday evening at Mountnessing Village Hall to play duplicate bridge.  Play starts at 7.30pm and pairs should arrive at 07:15: if you arrive unannounced after 7.25 you may not get a game. The club uses wireless scoring and computer-dealt boards.   Visitors and players with limited experience are always welcome, but note that you do need to have arranged a partner in advance as we do not currently operate a 'host' system.

Membership Renewals for 2021/22

Following a decision at the AGM held on 2nd September 2021, Membership for 2021/22 is FREE.
