Table Etiquette

Club Table Etiquette

We all come to play Bridge in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere so -


  • Be a good host or guest at the table
  • Stop discussing previous hands in order to greet your opponents at the start of the round
  • Give credit for good play or defence
  • Avoid criticism of other’s play
  • Give credit for good declarer play or defence
  • Don’t give unasked for tuition or triumphant explanation
  • Remember calling “Director Please” is a helpful, not critical action
  • Try not to let adjacent tables hear details of cards or play
  • Move promptly when the Director calls for the move
  • Silence your mobile (use vibrate)

We hope you enjoy your time at the club

Welcome to The Nottingham Bridge Club
Registered Charity Number: 1170537

Based in Carrington, The Nottingham Bridge Club has approx 250 members.

We organise lessons for beginners, intermediate and advanced players 

with Club and County players as tutors.

Computer/ WiFi Problems

Apologies for continuing problems with WiFi on our premises.  It seems like no sooner has one issue been resolved than another crops up!


The current situation is:


  • Directors can set up and run face to face drives without any problems - the tablets connect to the intranet and the results are correctly calculated.  It is possible to show the results on the big screen at the end of the drive and everything is saved.
  • However, the computer is not connecting to the internet hub which prevents the results being immediately uploaded to the club's website and to the EBU for Masterpoints and NGS scores.
  • A couple of workarounds mean that we can upload results either at the end of the drive, or soon afterwards.  Please be patient and be assured that we are getting there!


The WiFi also affects the bar terminals, and you may need to use the Chip and PIN rather than contactless when asked for payment.




Thee Swiss Teams event planned for
Sunday 26 May 2024

has unfortunately had to be cancelled  


The number of teams entered was insufficient to make this a viable event.  The date coincides with a Bank Holiday weekend and it seems lots of our members have social lives outside playing bridge!

We have another Swiss Teams event planned for Sunday 6th October which is definitely not a Bank Holiday so hope lots of you will want to put that in your diaries.


All drives and tournaments are shown in our Calendar.

Please arrive 15 minutes before the start time.
