Coronavirus: COVID-19 latest

The Clubhouse is now open and Members may now invite guests.
Members and guests will be expected to comply with the Club's Covid 19 charter for the maximum safety of their fellows and staff.
Please wear a mask when inside the clubhouse except when seated. Maintain a distance of at least 1m from other people.
In the grounds gatherings should be of fewer than 10 people (including children).

 

The members of one of the Club's more relaxed sections, the Bridge Section, can be found battling it out on the lawns, under the trees, and even occasionally in the bridge room.

The Bridge Room

The “bridgers” were given a room of their own when the clubhouse extension was officially opened by the Queen in 1972.

Bridge tournament

Tournaments, preceded by dinner, are held monthly, from October to June, for members and guests. Rubber bridge is very popular with players who wish to get together for a friendly game, at the weekend or during the week. The Section presently fields two teams which take part in an Interclub competition organised by the Hurepoix Committee of the French Bridge Federation (FFB) with matches at home and away.

Lessons and supervised games can be organised according to demand; monthly workshops are held for those players looking to progress. The morning lesson, either on a specific theme or using prepared hands, is followed by lunch and a friendly tournament or match which finishes around tea-time.

Bridge News

Bridge News - slowly coming to life!

Rubber bridge can be played almost at any time; the Bridge Room is currently not being used by Yoga, Step and Pilates classes until the autumn.
It is recommended that bigger tables are used enabling players to keep a good distance from each other, wash their hands frequently and keep the door and windows open whenever possible, or play out in the garden. Each player should use his/her own bidding box for the whole session and wear a mask if distancing is not possible. We hope that, all being well, bridge classes for beginners, monthly tournaments and workshops will all be resuming after the holidays.
