Welcome to the new online home of the West of England Bridge Club. The site has moved from woebc.co.uk to woebridgeclub.co.uk owing to problems with the domain name provider. The site should appear and function just as it did before.
Annually we run a number of Club competitions in place of a regular Monday, Wednesday or Friday evening session. Club competitions were suspended during the lockdown and will not restart until a sufficient number of members are attending the club regularly.

A fuller list of past winners is available.
All Club competitions are single session.
To win these competitions you and your partner or team-mates must all be paid-up Club Members; you can still play in the event if not, but your partnership or team cannot win the competition.
There is no need to enter in advance.
For most of the competitions you will need either a partner or a complete team of four; if you do not, please phone Laurie Barth (0117 935 0365) as soon as possible before the day and he will endeavour to fix it.
As for our regular sessions from September 2018, play starts at 7.15pm, so please be seated by 7:10pm. There is plenty of free car parking available on site, and our licensed bar is available all evening.
Hands are pre-dealt, with hand records provided at the end of play. We use BridgeMates to enter results at the table, so the results are out as soon as the last hand has been played, and are also available on our website the same night, and via Pianola.
The winner(s) will appear on this honours board, and receive a personalised engraved trophy, normally at the Christmas Party.
