Are you a member of the EBU? It costs nothing and you receive a regular Bridge magazine. If you would like to join, let us know.

Welcome to The Royal Automobile Club, Woodcote Park

It has been a busy few months since our AGM in February. Over the past few weeks it has been very reassuring to see so many of our regular Bridge Circle members returning to the Woodcote Park clubhouse Cedar Room to play face-to-face bridge again. We are all enjoying meeting friends in this airy room and taking full advantage of the beautiful early summer views across the lawns and golf course.  

We regularly have approximately 12 to 14 tables of Bridge. I am conscious that there are members who would like to play face-to-face Bridge again but perhaps do not have a regular partner to play with. Heather Matthew is brilliant at finding partners for members that would like to come along on Monday evenings to play duplicate bridge. If you have not yet returned to playing Bridge on a Monday evening and would like to join in, please do contact Heather via email and she will endeavour to find a partner,

The Bridge section strives to ensure that there is always a warm welcome for members joining in our Duplicate evenings. Please be aware that from time to time there will be new players joining us. We should all ensure that they are given a warm welcome as very often they will have been participating in the Bridge classes we organise. They are our future and will ensure that the Bridge section remains active and vibrant in the coming years ahead. I am determined that at Woodcote Park we retain the ethos of being a happy, friendly and welcoming Bridge section that we always have been.   

The Bridge Circle Committee have done a splendid job arranging a schedule of events, competitions, Chicago Bridge and Bridge classes for the months ahead. Listed below and to the right are dates for your diary. If you would like to play and join in the Bridge matches, then please contact Stewart Broome or sign up on the notice board sign up sheets.  

I think you will agree that we now have a full programme of bridge ahead and I very much look forward to seeing you all soon.

Kindest regards to everyone and very best wishes for the summer, may the sun keep shining!
