The EBU have an article on their website at describing the options for playing bridge on-line.  One of the options is for Clubs to register with Bridge Club Live (BCL) which enables members to add their club affiliation to the Profile wehn they register with BCL.  A Ladder for each registered club will list the results for all club members as a subset of the overall result.  NBC has registered for this and the link is:

Bridge Club Live =  

If you are having difficulty in registering, because of the numbers BCL are having to deal with, you should see the offer from BCL to use their EBU trial membership system found on the EBU website page:   under the heading "A special offer for EBU Members - try BCL for free"

Other options include Bridge Base Online (BBO) which the EBU are using for their hosted games.  In the past the EBU have used Funbridge to host their games.

The link to BBO is

It shoudl be noted that some functionality in these online offerings will incur a charge, but some basic functionality is usually free.



Newent Bridge Club Closed Until Further Notice

The committee has listened to the advice given by the government and have decided that we must close the Bridge Club until further, positive, information is provided.  We are concerned for the health and well-being of our members and do not wish to put anyone at risk.  

We want to stay in touch throughout this difficult time, and will continue to update you. If you have any news you would like to share with other members pass it on to the Club Secretary.

Keep safe, keep in touch and let us know if you have any suggestions to keep up the spirits!

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.

Coronavirus Precautions

A few clubs have asked the EBU if they should be taking any special measures during the coronavirus outbreak.  The World Health Organisation has issued guidance about it, primarily recommending:

  • Washing your hands frequently with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand rub;
  • Practising respiratory hygiene, covering mouth and nose when sneezing and discarding tissues immediately into a closed bin, cleaning your hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water;
  • Maintaining social distancing.

Some anti-bacterial hand sanitiser will be avaiable at the club for memebers to use to help avoid any issues with this.
