Online Sessions


The club have just been notified by the EBU that BBO are changing their take from entry fees from 30% to

40% from 1st July and

50% from 1st September.

This means that to be viable we will raise the entry for our club sessions to BBO$4 starting next Tuesday 8th July. This will apply on all sessions.

Hopefully if our table numbers stay at current levels we will not need any further increases but obviously this will be kept under review.

Great news we can now play as a club again

Monday Gentle Duplicate - 10am

Tuesday evenings - 7:30pm

Thursday Social Duplicate - 9:45am
