£4 entry - all welcome

70% Club

Any pair who achieves a 70% score is added to the 70% club but there are not many members who have achieved such heady heights three times in one week!

Congratulations to Graham and Jayne Randall - a tremendous accomplishment

Directors Course

We have some amazing directors at SLBC but unfortunately to ensure all the sessions can be covered comfortably allowing for holidays etc, the club is in need of some new directors. With this in mind, we will be running a directors course at the club later in the year. If you are interested in attending the course and then directing some sessions, please email Lesley at for the committee to consider.




Results - if you discover a result is incorrect you will be able to ask the director to change it during the session but if the session has already ended the results will not be changed so please do not ask.


Sitting pairs - as there are more and more members requesting that they remain seated, it is becoming increasingly difficult to accommodate everyone. Your director will do his best but sitting pairs will be at the discretion of the director.
