Our online sessions are Monday, Tuesday and Thursday Evenings at 7⋅30pm, playing ∼20 boards.
The cost is £3 per session for members (free for Pass members; 2 free sessions per week for MiniPass members). We ask that you pay in advance for a block of sessions, and suggest a minimum payment of £20 per player at a time. Our bank details are:
Sort Code: 23-05-80
Account : 24100782
Acct Name: Walton & Hersham Bridge Club Limited
As our banking is not free (though we do get a modest number of free transactions per month), it would be most helpful if regular pairs could make a single payment for the pair - such payment will be allocated 50/50 to each player (unless you tell us otherwise). Note that this is a business account, and that payee verification usually fails.
Please use your EBU number(s) as reference on the payment and also drop us an email after making payment to help us reconcile payments to players.
If you can't (or are unwilling to) pay by bank transfer, you can pay by sending a cheque directly to our bank:
Metro Bank, One Southampton Row, London, WC1B 5HA
Write our sort code and account number on the back of the cheque, and include a note saying that it's a deposit for our account with your EBU# as a reference.
Guests pay the same session fee as members but will be automatically enrolled as online-only members via an additional £2 monthly subscription added to the table money for the first session played in any given month (expiring at the end of each calendar month).
Should you subsequently decide that our online sessions are not for you, the Club will refund any remaining credit balance on request.
Finally, as the club is not currently affiliated to the EBU, our sessions will not earn master points, nor affect your EBU NGS grade.
We look forward to seeing you at the virtual table.

Bridge sessions at the Hersham Centre restart on 3rd August. Our full programme returns, and for those who are not comfortable with playing F2F, we intend to continue running the online sessions in parallel (with the same hands played in both, and results combined).
Although the government has seen fit to abandon all restrictions, we think it prudent to take some precautions against covid-19 (and flu, colds, and other assorted minor ailments). We will therefore:
Members who renewed their subscriptions promptly will be eligible to play F2F sessions at the lower online session price during August as a thank you for your loyalty.

The Walton & Hersham Bridge Club was originally formed by 'Mr Bridge', then taken over by Dennis Cook in 1989 and has since gone from strength to strength with over 250 members. In August 2006, Dennis handed over to Marietta Andree. And now in 2014, with Marietta's retirement, the club has been delivered into the capable hands of Steve Foster. The Club's motto is "Deal as you would be Dealt".
We meet on Tuesday & Thursday evenings at Hersham Centre, which is a bright modern building that can comfortably fit up to 24 tables. Please be punctual and take your seats by 7.25pm so that play can start at 7.30pm.
"Bridgemate IIs" are used so that results are updated as you play and hand copies for each session are available after play. We operate a host system, so a partner is always guaranteed. Free tea, coffee, soft drinks and water are available throughout the evening.
The club strives to provide friendly, relaxed evenings where players compete fairly with courtesy and good grace. We strongly support the "Best Behaviour at Bridge" programme sponsored by the EBU.
Please come and join us!
We're still seeking volunteer Directors and Hosts for the resumption of F2F sessions at the Hersham Centre.
Are you willing and able to help us? Please get in touch with Steve to discuss possibilities.
