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.
