Pinner Bridge Club Building is Currently Closed

Based on the latest Government advice issued on Monday March 16th 2020, we have decided that Pinner Bridge will close temporarily with immediate effect.  

We are still running online games and online Intermediate Bridge Lessons.

The new Government advice is for everyone to avoid non-essential contact with others.  This is to try to reduce the spread of Covid-19.  We will monitor the situation and post any updates here.

Pinner Bridge Club's Website

Welcome to our club.  Our website uses bridgewebs, which gives us a professional looking website, and one which is part of an international grouping of Bridge sites.

Our bridge results, with hand records as scored by ScoreBridge with Bridgemates are on this site.

If there are any improvements you'd like to see.  Please contact Tony Staw for comments or requests for the website.

Every now and then I come across a bridge problem that I think others would find interesting, so I try and put this on the website.  If you have come across a bridge problem you would like to share with others, please contact Tony to add it to this website.
