LATE
LATE

All players should be seated at least 10 minutes before the session starts. Arriving late without warning is rude, and should be avoided if at all possible. If you are delayed en-route to a session, please be sure to call and tell us so that we may reserve space for you in the movement (or inform your waiting partner), otherwise you risk a wasted journey.

WELCOME TO RICHMOND BRIDGE CLUB
WELCOME TO RICHMOND BRIDGE CLUB

Welcome to Richmond Bridge Club the most popular and successful EBU affiliated club in the country. Richmond Bridge club has been the No.1 club in the country for 9 consecutive years and we hope we are creating some sort of record. The club is housed in the old Bowling Club Pavilion in Cambridge Park, nestling between Richmond and Twickenham in South-West London. The Clubhouse, extensively refurbished in 2002, is now probably one of the finest in Surrey and  can accommodate 36-37  tables.

We offer a full range of duplicate bridge playing facilities from Monday to Friday, some Saturday Evenings and Sunday afternoons. The club also offers lessons for players of all standards to learn bridge as a beginner or to improve their bridge with various Refresher and Intermediate courses. If you are interested in learning please register by clicking here. Afternoon sessions start promptly at 1.45pm (start-time on Sundays is 2.30pm) and  in the evenings, play begins at 7.30pm. Special events are often held at weekends.
