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.

Please note that on the 14th of December the Bridge Section will hold its AGM at 2pm (for Club members only); this will be followed by a Tournament at 3pm, and at the end of the afternoon the Section will offer a Cocktail.
For the AGM, please find attached the Provisional Agenda and Provisional Minutes of the 2019 AGM. Please let Jenny know if you have any suggestions for the Agenda and/or any offers to join the Bridge Committee or to replace the Head of Section.
Don't forget to sign up for the tournament and if you are in need of a partner. There was had a record of 7 tables this month and it would be great to have the same number in December! Unfortunately, masks will again be de rigueur along with the other hygiene precautions.
