Woodborough Bridge Club

Established in 1986 - Affiliated to the EBU

Celebrating 30 years of Bridge

Woodborough Village Hall   -   6.45pm for 7.00pm start.

September is a busy month; classes restart after the summer break, our Fixture Secretary is busy organising the matches for our three Teams of 8 in the County Winter League, and we have welcomed a number of new members to the club. 

Please note that on 5thOctober we will be meeting at Oxton Village Hall.  Woodborough’s drama group are staging a play called “Who Killed the Director” in our usual venue; not sure if this is a bridge related play! 

Our annual Open Evening will be held on Thursday 12thOctober; this is a good opportunity to come and see how a duplicate session is run and to meet our members.  You do not need a partner for this event; come along to join in or just watch. 

For those who support our Charity event this will be held on Wednesday 29thNovember. More details next month.

If you would like to come along to our club please contact us.

Please contact Jane (0115 9652595)  or
