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.
The club has reopened for all normal sessions from Wednesday 5 January 2022. Members are reminded that facemasks must be worn and that you should be fully vaccinated against Covid, but also that the club runs two air sanitising machines in the playing room in addition to ensuring good ventilation.
Health and Safety
As a result of Government regulations, updated on 10 December 2021 and endorsed by the EBU, face coverings must be worn at all West of England Bridge Club sessions until 27 January. All members attending sessions are required to have had both vaccinations, and a booster where possible, against Covid, to not be under a duty of self-isolation and to be feeling healthy and symptom-free on the day. The playing room has built-in extractor fans, and we have purchased two air sanitiser units, which use UV light to kill germs. Hand sanitiser is provided for use.

What are we all about?
We are a duplicate bridge club based in North Bristol. We play with the emphasis not so much on winning the game as on enjoying it.
We are primarily a Members' Club, but visitors with at least some experience of playing club bridge are welcome to come along and play.
Our regular bridge sessions (valid pre-lockdown, subject to confirmation for 2021) are on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings, and from 2021 these will be at the RAFA Club, Westbury-on-Trym. All evening sessions start at 7.15pm.
There is a gentler duplicate session starting at 1.30pm on Monday afternoons. Our acclaimed supervised play sessions are on Thursday afternoons, also starting at 1.30pm. Both are also at the RAFA Club. More details of our sessions.
There is some car parking available on site, but also in the surrounding roads, and in the evening the licensed bar serves refreshments throughout play. Results and hand records are available at the end of play and on this website.
We are affiliated to the Avon Contract Bridge Association and the English Bridge Union, and master points are awarded for all of our events.
