Suspension of the club events

In the light of the advice from the Government, the EBU and NCBA, the committee has reluctantly decided to suspend all club activities until further notice.

We hope this suspension will not last too long, but clearly it is impossible to predict when we can start again.

We will let everyone know when the situation changes.

Welcome to Bawburgh Bridge Club

The Club is well known for providing a friendly and sociable atmosphere and we cater for bridge players of all standards.

Our main sessions are played at Bawburgh Village Hall on Wednesday & Thursday afternoons. We also provide Beginner lessons on Wednesday mornings, Supervised Play sessions on Thursday mornings and Relaxed sessions on Monday mornings. To find us, click on the "Map" link under "About BBC".

Our events are shown in the Club Programme in the menu. Players are required to be seated by 1.20pm and play will commence at 1.30pm. The Club is sensitive to members’ views on start and finish times and has established a policy whereby if you think that you will arrive after 1.20pm and before 1.30pm please ring us on 07949 764096 otherwise we will have to start without you.  Please therefore ensure that you allow sufficient time to arrive at the Club before 1.20pm. Visitors are always welcome except for a few member-only events indicated in the Programme. 

All our hands are predealt.  We use Bridgemate electronic scoring for all our sessions. Our results are provided by Pianola, which we think offers the most comprehensive tool available for performance analysis.
