Please note that late finishes spoil some players' enjoyment of their bridge. Please try to arrive at 19:15 for a prompt 19:30 start, thank you.
Welcome to the new EBU bridge club in the Upminster area offering a friendly and social regular bridge session on Friday evenings, a daytime competition, lessons, social activities and club holidays.
Play with Upminster & Cranham - 'We play with finesse'
Club competitions include annual ladders for pairs and individuals (Gents and Ladies) and a 'World of Bridge - World Championship'.
Our 'World Champion' will be the highest ranked individual/s from at least 3 of 4 'World of Bridge' events, these will be quarterly daytime sessions in local restaurants that include lunch - each event will feature a different country's cuisine.
Only club members will be eligible to win competitions (although non-members may play), there will be entry fees to 'World of Bridge' but these are discounted for members.
We will keep you up to date with what's going on here - next up will be our next 'World of Bridge' event and we're working on a charity evening event.
Guests, visitors or friends are always very welcome to attend any evening or event but only members may win competitions.
Many thanks to the four pairs who represented us in June at the ECBA Club Pairs event at Barleylands. All the pairs aquitted themselves well and helped highlight our club's progress:
Ann Savory & Angela Fenton
Anne Clark & Nobby Clark
Mustapha Rahaman & Nigel Stuttard
Kath O'Connor & Peggy Rodrigues
Thank you for your support we hope you enjoyed the day!
A hugely enjoyable first World of Bridge event in the lovely Osteria Due Amici in Upminster was won by Carol McCue and Paul Stevens.
The full results can be seen from the menu option to the left and a brief report is here.
Event 2 had been slightly delayed but arrangements are close to being finalised and details will shortly be announced.
Congratulations to Mary Putt on her Masterpoint promotion to Club Master.
Our club night on Fridays will include a relaxed supervised play section subject to demand, we're expecting a couple of tables from our tuition group but others are most welcome. Please contact us for details.
