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 West of England Bridge Club has now reopened and we are running our programme of five weekly sessions as before the lockdown. Table money is £5. For location details follow the Directions link in the panel to the left.
Health and Safety: All members attending sessions are required to have had both vaccinations against Covid, to not be under a duty of self-isolation and to be feeling healthy and symptom-free on the day. The wearing of masks is optional, but is encouraged because it offers protection to other members of the club. 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.
The AGM has been postponed but Annual Reports are available here.

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.
