Join us for the popular

Blue-Pointed Midweek Swiss Pairs

at Henfield Hall on Wednesday 5th October

We would love to welcome you at our second live County event of the season.

We start at 11 a.m. and we will be complete by 6 p.m.  The entry fee is only £36 per pair and for that you get a Ploughman's lunch of your choice, tea and biscuits and enhanced master points.  And there's the opportunity to meet and greet friends old and new.

You can enter online or download the entry form.  If you have any questions, please email Organiser Peter Clinch or ring him on 0751 5333539.

Sussex/Kent Green Point Events

We are pleased to announce that our next green-pointed venture will be joint-sponsored by Sussex and Kent on the weekend of 29th-30th October - Swiss Pairs on the Saturday and Swiss Teams on the Sunday.  We hope to make this a friendly affair and to attract players of all standards (green points are a bonus!).  It will be held at Tunbridge Wells Bridge Club - a lovely facility and just next door to a Premier Inn if you want to make a weekend of it.  You can enter now!

There will also be a joint face-to-face Really Easy Pairs (NGS 6 and below) on the Sunday - see Kent web-site for details.

It’s with great pleasure that I can announce that the

East Grinstead Basic Bridge Pairs

is returning to East Grinstead after a gap of over 10 years!

We have a new venue and catering and a new director but can guarantee the same friendly atmosphere!  As has been the case previously, this competition is aimed primarily at players who have learned more recently.  But those who have played for longer are still welcome as this provides the newer players with a variety of levels of play.  As usual, apart from prizes for the overall winners, there will also be prizes for less-experienced players.  Best Behaviour at Bridge will apply, helping to create the usual atmosphere.

You can enter online or download the entry form now.

The Hills Trophy

Worthing BC are going to run the Hill's Trophy teams event this year for the first time since 2019 - see entry form for details.



Crawley BC's 50th Anniversary!
Crawley BC's 50th Anniversary!

Congratulations to Crawley BC who celebrated their 50th Anniversary recently with a enjoyable evening of bridge, cakes and Prosecco!  One of the North/South winners was founder member Tad Jasco (pictured) who still plays every week.

Crawley were one of the first Sussex clubs to restart face-to-face bridge after the pandemic.  Numbers are now above pre-pandemic levels but Crawley still have room to welcome new members and guests.

SCCBA Venture Pairs
SCCBA Venture Pairs

8 tables participated in this year's Venture Pairs at Worthing Bridge Club on Sunday July 31st on a relaxed afternoon with a friendly atmosphere.  A very tasty afternoon tea was enjoyed by all.

Congratulations to winners Mike Percik and Diane Shimwell.

The runners-up were Peter Nursten and Dawn Sullings.

Many thanks to organiser Eileen Perrigo and director Alexa Baxter.


The Gladys Hakki Trophy is awarded annually to a Sussex member who has given outstanding service to county and club over a number of years.  This year's very deserving winner is Fergus Cameron who was presented with the trophy at the Sussex Candles event at Henfield on June 19th.

Fergus has been on the Bexhill Bridge Club committee for a total of 18 years, during which time he has spent significant periods in one of the Officer positions, i.e. Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer.   In addition to this, Fergus has kept all the financial records of the 1066 Online Club.

See full nomination by Bexhil Bridge Club.


14 teams enjoyed bridge and splendid food at the Sussex Candles at Henfield on Sunday June 19th - the county's first face-to-face event for over 2 years!  Many thanks to Organiser Peter Clinch, Director David Galpin (with assistance from Peter Bates) and Charlotte Setahul who supplied the catering.

Congratulations to the team of David Benjamin, Matthew Smith, Mike Keeping and Matthew Read who were winners by just 1 VP.  The runners-up were Alan Setchell, Jane Handley, Guy Davies and Terence Fishlock with JIm Downes, Josie Allen, Duncan McSorland and Jim Norman in 3rd place.
