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 Directors time to arrange the movement and still start on time.

Wednesday is a competitive evening and you must come with a partner.  There are two Friday duplicate sessions running at the same time.  One is gentlebridge (see below) and the other is a non-hosted, relaxed but competitive session.

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 as soon as the session is completed.   Aprinted hand record is available at the end of every session.

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.  This Gentle Bridge session is hosted so there is no need to bring your own partner.
