Welcome (back) 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. It probably will  be a while until we're all comfortable enough to be in a session as crowded as this one though.

Our main sessions are played at Bawburgh Village Hall on Wednesday & Thursday afternoons (starting at 1.30)We also provide Beginner lessons on Wednesday mornings,  and Relaxed sessions on Monday mornings. To find us, click on the "Map" link under "About BBC".


Programme of events.

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. Please therefore ensure that you allow sufficient time to arrive at the Club before 1.20pm. Starting in December we will be commencing the Thursday afternoon session at 12.45, so that we can all get away earlier and avoid too much traffic.

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.

Here is a link to a Word document which is a standard convention card.

Please download and edit this so that both you and your partner can have identical forms at club sessions. For example you will need to specify whether you are playing strong or weak 2s.

A cashless club!

We are now operating as a cashless club. We are using the BrianMas accounting system developed specifically for bridge clubs.

In summary, everyone has their own pot of money held by the club, which can be added to using bank transfers (or cheques if you don't have access to online banking). As you play sessions the table money will be withdrawn form your pot. Everyone can to see their own pool for money and the transactions using the link at the top right of the site.
