Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Update
Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Update

Following the announcement that Solihull is to go in to local lockdown from Tuesday 15 September, we regret that the planned re-opening has been postponed.  The Club will, therefore, remain closed, until further notice.  During this time the Club will be fully closed, so unless a pre-arrangement has been made for access, please do not try to gain entry.  The Board are uncertain when the Club will re-open, but are keeping abreast of advice and guidance provided by the Government, and other sources with a focus on Bridge Clubs. 

Please watch this space for further developments, which will, hopefully, not be too far away.

If you have any questions, please contact a member of the Board, or email here.

Please look after yourselves and take care during this difficult time.  We wish you all the very best.
