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

Club competitions include annual ladders for pairs and individuals (Gents and Ladies), improvers, handicap 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' which is an 'open' event but these are discounted for members.

What's on

We will keep you up to date with what's going on here.

Please note that new courses for beginners and improvers are starting soon. The next 3-Club challenge will take place on 12th March and plans are taking shape for our next 'World of Bridge' event as well as the club's first holiday - please watch this space!

Guests, visitors or friends are always very welcome to attend any evening or event but only members may win competitions.

Lessons Start 7th Feb

A new beginner's class and our first improver's class will both start on Friday 1st February 1pm -3pm in Cranham.

If you wish to imrove your game or you or someone you know enjoys playing cards but hasn't played bridge then why not consider one of these courses?

For those new to the game playing bridge offers an enjoyable few hours entertainment, a mentally stimulating experience and an opportunity to make new and lasting friendships as part of a growing social scene. The first lesson is a free 'Taster Lesson' and you only sign up for the course if you wish to continue. Come alone or with a friend, bridge is an all-encompassing pastime.

These courses include an up to date course book, handouts, EBU and UCBC memberships, they are full courses and not rushed or intensive, they allow plenty of time to learn at a comfortable pace.
