Welcome to New Hertford Bridge Club

Welcome to New Hertford Bridge Club's website.

We are a friendly club and play duplicate bridge on Tuesday evenings in the Waterford Village Hall. Sessions start promptly at 19:30. You should be seated by 19:20 in order to allow time to set the movement. If you are unavoidably delayed call 07842 899603

Visitors are welcome and their first two sessions are free. If you would like to play but do not have a partner - visitor or member, please contact the chair or secretary and we will do our best to find you a partner.  Non-members may not play on club competition evenings. Please check the calendar.

Membership is £10 per annum; table money is £2.50 or, for visitors, £3.50 (after first two free sessions). See box below on how to pay.

We do not offer bridge training ourselves but  nearby Welwyn Garden Bridge Club runs an extensive teaching programme from beginner through to intermediate -

Waterford is located on the road to Stevenage, the A119, about 1.5 miles north of  Hertford.  The Village Hall is on the right just as you enter the village coming from Hertford.

A location map can be found by clicking on the side menu 'where and when'. For more information please contact the Secretary, Amanda Barnes on 01992 505688, or Chair, Glen Parry on 01992 414861




Each standard session costs £2.50 for members. Payment must be made in advance of playing in one of the following ways:

Monthly by standing order of £10 (couples £20)

Ad Hoc BACs payments to maintain a credit in your TMA. All payments in minimum amounts of £20 (£40 for couples) only.

By cheque using a paying in book which can be supplied on request.

If your TMA is not in credit by 2pm on the day of the session you risk not being admitted to the game.

The club usually subsidises SIMS (except for visitors)

Accounts will be reconciled annually and any overpayments refunded. Or you can ask for a refund at any time. You can also email Mark to find out how much credit you have, though we would appreciate it if you keep a record yourself to minimise these queries.

Table money for visitors is £3.50. Please contact the chair or secretary in advance.




Most Important, include your name (names) in the reference

CAF Bank have not joined the scheme for checking payee account name against account details – you will be warned, ignore the warning but check carefully


 We ask you to follow a few simple safeguards now that we have returned to face to face bridge:

We expect all members and visitors to be fully vaccinated. 

If you have any symptoms cough, cold, please stay away.

If you have been in recent close contact with anyone with Covid please stay away 

Hand sanitiser will be available
