The Ross on Wye Bridge Club was founded by Douglas Harper in 1987. The first meeting was on 4th May that year, when 35 members met to play rubber bridge in the Ross Conservative Club. The annual subscription was £3 and the table money was 30p
Later in the year, the Club began to play duplicate bridge, became affiliated to the English Bridge Union and to the newly formed Herefordshire Bridge Association
The membership continued to grow and the Club began to look for a more suitable venue that could cope with such a large number of players. It was at this time that the Community Association was developing the Larruperz Centre and in June 1990 the Club was able to hire the Paxton Hall.
Since then the Club has been based in the Larruperz Centre, using the Paxton Hall on Mondays and the Watkins Room on Fridays. Inevitably, in line with inflation, the Club's subscriptions have increased: £5 annual subscription and £2.50 table money.
In appreciation of the quality of the accommodation provided in the Community Centre, the Club made a donation of £200 in early 1995 and another donation of £300 in November 1995 in response to the Association's appeal for contributions to the Development Fund. As a further token of the Club's appreciation, four hanging flower baskets are provided each year.
There are now over 100 members of the Club who play on Mondays and/or Fridays.
