Re Coronavirus

Hi All
It  is with regret that all activities of Penarth Bridge Club are suspended until further notice with immediate effect.

We will assess the situation each month and keep you infomed.

It has been a joy to play at the club, and a privelege to be your Chairman.

We will get though this.

Let's hope it will not be long before Table Up.

Keep Safe. Keep Well.
Very best wishes

History of the club

Penarth Bridge Club was founded in 1972 to play duplicate contract bridge in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
The story of our first 30 years, which was recorded by Hope Hall for our Birthday Celebration, is included
under General Information. After 40 years, the club still retains its original intent of offering good bridge in a friendly and fair environment.

The club is a member of the East Wales Bridge Association (EWBA) and the Welsh Bridge Union (WBU).
All sessions are directed according to the rules of the WBU, with master points awarded for all scored events.
The club uses the ScoreBridge scoring program in combination with the Bridgetablets electronic scoring system ,
which provides instant results at the end of each session.

New members and visitors are always welcome.
Whatever your experience you will likely find players of a comparable standard at Penarth.


We play on Tuesday and Friday nights starting at 6.45 pm but on Thursday there is a session for beginners and those who would like to improve.

We look forward to welcoming everyone at the Friendly Club at Trinity Church Hall!

Beginners and Improvers

 A session for beginners and those who would like to improve, is held every Thursday.

This is held from 10am to 1pm.

Please be there at 9.50am to meet the others and be seated
