ESSEX MIXED TEAMS AND OTHER ESSEX COMPETITIONS

The Essex Mixed Teams competition was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 so the 2019 winners - Cathy Macnaughton, Maureen Walker, Ian Yeats and Paul Hickson - are still the reigning Champions!

The up to date position on all Essex competitions can be found on the ECBA website and we also have a link to the calendar for London Competitions on the London Metropolitan Bridge Association website - see the "Useful Links" tab above for both

BRIDGE WITH WFBC

  We are now playing duplicate bridge in Walthamstow on Mondays from 7.30pm (prompt) to 10.30pm and online on BridgeClubUK on Thursdays from 7pm (18 boards), and all are most welcome

The location for Mondays will be the Salvation Army Hall (pictured) opposite the William Morris Gallery, Forest Road, Walthamstow and other details can be found above and under the Information tab on the left, 

If you'd like to play on a Monday or a Thursday but don't have a partner you can contact us at secretarywfbc@gmail.com - it may well be possible to arrange one.

 

"EBU BEST BEHAVIOUR AT BRIDGE"
Most of these Guidelines of course apply to Online Bridge as much as to Face to Face Bridge..........:
 
  • DO greet others in a friendly way before starting play
  • DO be a good 'host' or 'guest' at the table
  • DO try to make bridge enjoyable for yourself, your partner and your opponents
  • DO give credit when partner or opponents make a good bid or play
  • DO take care of your personal grooming
  • DO ensure that your mobile phone is turned off
  • DO enjoy the company as well as the game
  • DO be polite at the table and don't gloat over good results
  • DON'T criticise your partner or opponents at the table
Need a Partner?

If you need a partner either for a Monday or a Thursday, please contact Paul at secretarywfbc@gmail.com, and he will do his best to see what can be arranged

Alan Custerson

It is with great regret that we announce the death of Alan Custerson. 

Alan was one of the most long-standing members of the Club and will be greatly missed. Here is a tribute from Anne Convery, Alan's regular partner on a Monday evening:

Alan was a great supporter of Waltham Forest Bridge Club, usually playing twice a week. Alan used also to enjoy going on bridge holidays. For many years Alan was the Club's very efficient treasurer and he took his responsibilities seriously. In recent years, I was Alan's regular partner on Monday evenings and we enjoyed many evenings of bridge there, not always with successful outcomes! I enjoyed playing with Alan as I found him friendly, polite and considerate to me and to our opponents. When the pandemic came and we had to resort to playing bridge online with the Club, Alan was keen to play and we continued to have some enjoyable evenings playing bridge. In February Alan became unwell, but even then he was keen to return to playing online again against other members of the Club, when he was discharged from hospital. I think playing regular bridge and doing cryptic crosswords really helped keep Alan mentally alert during his years of retirement. I will miss Alan's good humoured presence as a bridge partner, who did not make a big issue of his partner's mistakes.
