Welcome to Ridgeway Bridge Club
Committe Update and Virtual F2F Bridge on BCL

Good News

Due to the restrictions not being lifted for numbers of people indoors on the 21st June as we had thought, we have not been able to arrange to restart face to face bridge as we hoped in the middle of July.  However, subject to any Government restrictions being lifted, we are intending to restart face to face bridge on the evening of Monday, 9th August, 1830 for 1845 start and the afternoon of Wednesday 11th August 1315 for 1330 start at Cookhill Village Hall, and then on Thursday, 12th August, at 1000 at Feckenham.  We will be putting further details about the final arrangements on the website, and we will be expecting all of us to take care of one another, by respecting each other's personal space, and taking the steps we can to minimise any risks when we start to play face to face again.  Members should bring their own drinks in the interim. We are greatly looking forward to seeing you all again at Ridgeway Bridge Club,

  Best wishes,

Yvette  Chairman





Important Information


Membership Subscriptions - Thank you very much to all members who have already paid their subscriptions.  If you wrote a cheque for your subscription it is possible that it will be a little while before it is paid in due to the current restrictions on movement, but we will be banking the cheques in due course and your membership will be continuous.  For those who have not yet paid their subscription, then due to the unforseen circumstances we will be waiving the late payment of  £5.00 if your renewal is not completed by the 7th April, however you can send a cheque to our membership secretary, Sandy Cruickshank at the address on the top of your letter. Alternatively you can pay when bridge resumes.   
We are aware that those who have already paid will have paid their subscription expecting to be able to play bridge and with the Club being forced to close due to Covid-19 this is not possible, therefore when the current serious situation and lockdown comes to an end, and we are able to restart normal bridge club activity, the Committee will consider extending the period of membership for this year to reflect the closure.  
Please take all measures you can to stay well, and I look forward to seeing you at bridge in I hope, the not too distant future.  In the meantime perhaps we will meet on line!
With many thanks for your continued support,
Yvette, Duncan, Ann, David, Joan, Mike, Molly and Sandy





Club Venues

We are a friendly club with 3 duplicate sessions a week.

Visitors are welcome and may attend up to 6 sessions each year before being required to submit a membership application.

Monday evening and Wednesday afternoon sessions are usually 5 - 9 tables.

Our Thursday morning session is much smaller and offers a slightly more gentle experience with only about 3 - 5 tables.  Usually only 20 boards are played at this session so it is very relaxed whilst still competitive.  This is an ideal session for the bridge player wanting to try out duplicate bridge. 

Monday and Wednesday sessions are held at Cookhill Village Hall, whilst Thursday is held at Feckenham Village Hall. Refreshments are included within the table money which is £3 and £4 for visitors

We will be holding  a Ridgeway trophy  competition each year

There is a Host Rota provided for Mondays and Wednesdays but not Thursdays, Bank Holidays or Competition Nights 

Cookhill Village Hall has a large private car park and there is an adjacent free  car park at  Feckenham Village Hall

We are affiliated to the EBU( English Bridge Union)  and the WCBA( Worcestershire Contract Bridge Association)

Please see our information pages for more details and who to contact if you would like to know more.

We look forward to seeing you!
