Online Bridge

If you would like to give Bridge Club Live a try click here for the basic instructions, around 45 SBC members are active on BCL. Following the success of the league over the summer a BCL virtual club now runs on Monday afternoons and Friday evenings in addition to the winter league.  The SSCBA set up a County wide Bridge Base Online virtual club that meets on Wednesday evenings, see here for advice on how to get started with BBO.  A new third option is RealBridge where some EBU and Midlands regional events are now taking place.  Please don't see these as either/or options but rather as different ways of enjoying online bridge which add variety to your game.

The quickest response will be to tell either Pat Martin or any member of the committee at the bridge session then a card can be signed & posted immediately. Alternatively, you can email the secretary.

Afternoon sessions will operate within a high level of anti-covid protection.   Face masks must be worn when away from a table.  Strict protocols will be followed to ensure the maximum degree of safety for members.   Places for afternoon sessions as at 03/09/21 no longer need to be booked but if you need further information please contact Terry the Club Captain Terry Maltby, by email or telephone 01889 801996.
