Coronavirus: COVID-19 latest

Following the announcements by the French President and by the Government, the Club will be closed from Friday 30 October 2020 for at least four weeks.

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

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 - Playing Bridge safely

The FFB has communicated COVID safe play guidelines to regular (licensed) players. The guidelines are reproduced here for the casual player, who may not have seen them.

Briefly, it is now strongly recommended that everyone wear a mask, that we wash our hands often, in soap and water or with the "gel hydroalcoolique", keep a certain distance from the other players at the table by using a larger table the surface of which can be cleaned regularly and using the same bidding box for a whole afternoon/evening session. Read on for the full guidelines (in French).
