Purchasing BB$

It is necessary to pay in advance to Bridge Base Online (BBO) in order to play in Newton Abbot's online events. BBO is an American website and  accepts payment for what they call Bridge Base dollars (BB$,) 

There is a minimum purchase amount of BB$10 and the payment you make is converted to UK £. Your account is credited and will then be debited by $3 when you pay the table money for an event .

Register to Play in an Event

Everybody needs to go onto the BBO website and register for the event or tournament from 2 hours in advance.

Please do not leave it to the last minute as we need to resolve any of your problems and finalise the movement before we start.

If there is a pair prepared to act as a spare pair in the event of our having a half table then can they please email Don Pearson

Spare Pairs must be available at the start of the session and will be invited to a table if required - Spare Pairs have free entry into the session.

Welcome to Newton Abbot Bridge Club
"Face to face" Bridge

We play every Thursday evening at the Devon County Football Association Headquarters on Coach Road. Postcode TQ12 1EJ.  Please arrive and be seated by 6-30 for a 6-45 start. There is free parking on site and table money is £2-50 (£3-50 for visitors). Table money includes free tea and coffee. Midway through the session we have a short break of around 15 minutes which gives time for players to get some fresh air or go to the bar for refreshments.

We ensure that the room is well ventilated with hand sanitiser available. Some players may choose to wear masks or visors if they wish. Players in the North position will have sole charge of the Bridgemate and it will not be necessary for East to touch it to verify the score if they so wish.  

We continue to run a Tuesday evening online session (see below).

We have also started a Hosted Relaxed Bridge afternoon every Tuesday from 1-30pm (start) to 4-30pm. You can arrive any time afer 12-30. Parking charges for this session will be £1-30. 

Here is a map showing where the Devon County F.A. HQ venue is in Newton Abbot.
