Junior Squad Sim Pairs—February 2020

Posted 24 January 2020

Please come along and take part in the Sim which we will be holding on Monday 3 February. The £3.00 surcharge to our normal session fee promotes junior bridge in England by going directly into the junior squad budgets. The event, previously titled the Bridge England Sim Pairs, remains in the familiar fun format, suitable for everyone to play, not just juniors!

Bear in mind that the same deals, which you can only play once, are used in other clubs on Tuesday 4 February. Hand records will be available online after the Tuesday session.

Posted 20 January 2020

The Portland is a two‑session mixed‑pairs event held at various venues. The event is matchpointed over the entire field via the internet.

The easiest way to enter is online on the EBU website through My EBU.

 

Young Chelsea Super League—Spring 2020

Posted 14 January 2020

The brand‑new YC Super League starts on 22 January. An amazing 21 teams have signed up for our top‑class competition—the giants of Division One will play for the honour of becoming the first ever YC Super League champions (and the big money prize of course), while the up‑and‑coming teams in Division Two will fight for promotion (and their own money prize). More details

 

Move to BridgeWebs

Posted 29 December 2019

In the near future, the Young Chelsea will be switching to a BridgeWebs website. Benefits from the move are:

  • The cost to the club will be lower
  • It will be easier for us to keep up to date
  • It looks better on mobile phones

The new website is www.bridgewebs.com/youngchelsea. Please have a look round, bear with us while we smooth out the rough edges, and let us know what you think.

In future results will be loaded to Pianola (as now) and to BridgeWebs. We will not be dropping Pianola, so you have a choice of which you prefer.

When we switch over early in the new year, the “ycbc.co.uk” address will take you to the new site

THE CLUB
Bridge session in the Warwick Room

We offer frequent duplicate bridge games for members and visitors, and regular bridge lessons for beginners and improvers.

We are affiliated to the English Bridge Union (EBU). There are awards of EBU Master Points for all play sessions, and your results count towards the EBU’s National Grading Scheme.

We have a licensed bar and a kitchen offering a short but very reasonably priced menu.

Hot meals are available from 1½ hours before evening games; salads and sandwiches are available at other times.

Don’t be misled by the name. Although the Young Chelsea is particularly welcoming to young players, we have many older members, some of whom have belonged since the club began in 1968. There is no upper age limit—you are never the wrong age to play at the Young Chelsea (or YC as it is popularly known). Our original home was in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea; now we can be found in Shepherd’s Bush.
