Welcome to Shadwell Bridge Club
Shadwell Bridge Club on the Internet

Whilst the Corona virus pandemic is keeping the Club closed, we are encouraging members to play on-line with Bridge Base Online (BBO)

Shadwell Bridge Club is awaiting approval from BBO to be allowed to organise Club Based Tournaments. BBO have indicated that once they have resolved some of the stability issues they are experiencing due to the recent upsurge in demand, we will be given the necessary permissions.

In the meantime, every Friday evening we are organising pseudo duplicate sessions where Shadwell Bridge Club Members who want to play against fellow Members can do so. Anyone interested will need a BBO username.

BBO is free to join at https://www.bridgebase.com and free to play.

If you use an iPad then you can download the BBO App from the Apple App store. Again this is free.

Registration is pretty simple. There are YouTube videos to help or if you want to be talked through the steps of registering, I am happy to do this over the telephone. It takes 5 minutes max.

Once registered all you need to do is let me know you wish to play each Friday, by Thursday 5pm. I will do my best to sort out a partner for you.

Players are allocated to tables with an experienced Host responsible for setting up the Table on BBO. All you do is log on at 7.00 pm on Friday and you will automatically receive an invitation to the table.

If you are interested give me a call, or go on-line!

Shadwell Shield 2020

At the last Zoom Committee Meeting, it was decided to cancel the Shadwell Shield for this year as it was unlikely that we would complete the 9 scheduled rounds of face to face bridge because of the Covid lockdown.

The Committee have now agreed to award the 2020 Shadwell Shield to the pair or player with the best average score from Matches played on BBO each Friday evening up until the 1st Dec 2020 or when we return to face to face bridge (which ever comes first). Full competition rules have been placed in the Competition Rules section.

If you are not playing on-line it is not to late to join in. We can find you a partner if you do not have one. Let me know if you are interested?

Temporary Closure of Shadwell Bridge Club

As you are all aware we are living in challenging times at the moment. Although official advice is rapidly changing, it is clear that as individuals and groups, we should be taking reasonable and responsible steps to protect ourselves and friends from unnecessary risks. As a consequence the Committee have sadly taken the decision to suspend activities at Shadwell Bridge Club for the foreseeable future. This is in line with other clubs in the area and reflects EBU and YCBA decisions to suspend National and Regional events.

As the situation with the outbreak develops and advice from Government and other bodies changes, the Committee will review the situation and keep the members of Shadwell Bridge Club updated of any changes.

In the meantime there are plenty of bridge resources online, the EBU suggest Bridge Base Online, FunBridge, No Fear Bridge and Bridge Club Live. These are all worth having a look at, and in the interest of impartiality, other on-line resources are available. Let’s be honest, we are all addicted to the game and where there is a will, there is always a way!

So, until we meet again, please keep well and please keep in touch.  We hope to see you all in the not too distant future when real face to face Bridge recommences at Shadwell Bridge Club.
