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.

Jordan Cup and Strawberry Fayre

Coming up - Sunday 21st July is the date for our annual Strawberry Fayre and Jordan Cup individual competition.

More details to follow.

Combination Lock

We have a new lock for the main gate on Mansfield Road.  Whilst the club building is unoccupied the lock will be in place to prevent unauthorised access.  The combination is the same as the chain lock, so known to all keyholders.

The combination code is 4 numbers aligned with the arrow next to the yellow Yale button (see picture).  When the correct code is selected, pushing the arrow to the right (PUSH WITH YOUR LEFT THUMB) will release the lock and enable the gate to be opened.  When securing the lock, after the locking bars have been inserted the number dials should be twisted so that the code is not visible and this will prevent the arrow being pushed to the right until the correct combination is entered again.

Rotating the number dials can be a bit tricky to get properly aligned and needs nimble fingers.  

All drives and tournaments are shown in our Calendar.

Please arrive 15 minutes before the start time. Ring 0115 960 7992 if you are delayed whilst on your way
