Welcome to Walton & Hersham Bridge Club
Welcome to Walton & Hersham Bridge Club

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!

Membership Subscriptions 2021

The pandemic-extended 2019/20[/21] membership year expired on 30th April. A new membership year started on the 1st May, so membership subscriptions are now due.

Your membership supports the club's existence, and without it, the club will not be able to resume F2F sessions when the pandemic restrictions are lifted.

The standard subscription (where you also pay table money each time you play) is £30.

Alternatively, we offer the Pass subscription that eliminates table money for all regular club sessions (including online sessions and Simultaneous Pairs) entirely in exchange for a higher annual subscription of £350 (£320 for life members). As well as never having to remember to bring your wallet or purse, or having qualms about not bringing enough money for a simultaneous pairs event (it does happen!), the Pass membership protects you against increases in table money or Sims charges. You stop paying table money as soon as we have your Pass subscription.

We also offer the MiniPass subscription, which works on a similar model to the Pass subscription but only covers one session (two online) per week and consequently has a lower price of £200 (£170 for life members).

There is an additional discount of £30/£15 to existing Pass/MiniPass members respectively to reflect the slightly reduced value of the old membership "year".

Subscriptions can be paid either electronically or by cheque. Electronic payment should be made directly to our bank account 23-05-80 24100782, quoting your name and EBU number as a reference. Cheques should be made payable to Walton & Hersham Bridge Club Ltd, our account details written on the back, and sent directly to our bank, Metro Bank, One Southampton Row, London, WC1B 5HA along with a note giving your EBU number as a reference.

Please drop us an email telling us whether you are renewing your membership or not, and if renewing, your current contact details or any changes we should know about.

HELP WANTED
HELP WANTED

We'd still like to add online evening sessions to Tuesdays (see below re Thursdays), but we need some volunteer Directors and Hosts to do that.

We're also seeking volunteer Directors and Hosts for the resumption of F2F sessions at the Hersham Centre in due course.

Are you willing and able to help us? Please get in touch with Steve to discuss possibilities.

New Online Session
New Online Session

We've added another RealBridge session on Thursday Evenings at 7.30pm, starting on 17th June.

14th June 2021.

Email Issues

We're experiencing ongoing difficulties in emailing some of you.

Two weeks ago, the email with RealBridge session links was refused for all hotmail.com or btinternet.com email addresses (we received 30-odd rejection messages).

Last week's email (with fewer links) was returned as undeliverable approximately 24 hours later for btopenworld.com addresses (a few rejections).

And now icloud.com addresses are not accepting our revised, simpler, news email.

2.30pm 26th April 2021.
