The Newent Bowl 2020

The 42nd Newent Bowl will be held on Sunday 23rd February 2020.  We are changing the format this year to a Swiss Pairs event, and reverting to the original concept of a more social event, without Blue Points but with a very nice tea.

The entry fee is £10 per person, cheques payable to Newent Bridge Club or direct to our bank account (details on the entry form).

Entry Forms are available on the website, from the club or a member of the committee.  Entries are limited to 60 Pairs so enter early for a guaranteed place.  

Christmas Party
Christmas Party

The Newent Club Christmas party will be on Wednesday 11th December starting at 6.30pm.  This is a fun evening with food, wine and informal bridge hands with some prizes.

Let Carol know if you are able to attend / can contribute to the buffet.  Please don't forget to bring your own cutlery & crockery.  Please don't bring candles as they can make a mess of the tablecloths.

Everyone is welcome.

Newent Bridge Club, Gloucestershire
Newent Bridge Club, Gloucestershire

We meet twice a week on Wednesdays and Fridays at Newent Community School.

Play starts at 7.00pm on both evenings. Please be seated by 6.50pm to give the Director time to arrange the movement and start on time.

Wednesday is a competitive evening and you must come with a partner.  On Fridays there are two duplicate sessions, a relaxed yet competitive non-hosted session and a gentlebridge session (see below).

All hands are created and dealt using a Duplimate dealing system. Scoring is completed electronically at the table via BridgeMates and the  result is available at the end of the session.  Printed hand records are available afterwards to take home.

Visitors and any players wishing to join the club are always very welcome.

Gentle Bridge on Fridays - All Welcome
Gentle Bridge on Fridays - All Welcome

Gentle Bridge on Friday evenings is for club members and visitors who wish to play a more social game of bridge. 

It also supports learners by  introducing them to duplicate bridge where advice and guidance is available from an experienced player if needed.    We play 15- 20 boards per session using standard ACOL (with a few simple variations),  Masterpoints are not awarded. 

Club members are welcome to play in the Gentle Bridge session and are encouraged to bring along any friends who they feel might enjoy a more informal game.  Gentle Bridge sessions are hosted so there is no need to come with a partner.
