Bridge is played at both clubhouses and is open to all members and their guests. It is played in a friendly and relaxed manner and players of all standards are welcome, including beginners.

Pall Mall

From Thursday 24 March we are going to revert to non-members being accompanied by Club members only. We have been happy to invite other St. James’s club members to come along without being accompanied, but now as our numbers are returning to normal we feel it only fair that we return to our normal rules:- On the last Thursday of each month St James’s club members are invited to join us, so this starts on the Thursday 31 March and then on the last Thursday of every month thereafter.

By way of a gentle reminder from Thursday 3 February we have started our Duplicate Bridge at 6.45pm sharp, please arrive five minutes early to arrange payment and get seated. After 12 boards there will be a short break, play will then resume at 8.30pm.

Calling RAC Spitfire, RAC Bristol, RAC Jaguar, RAC Elite and RAC Morgan. We are happy to announce that all our Club teams now have a dedicated representative on the Committee. Paul Mainwaring has kindly agreed to champion Club team participation in tournaments, and will help with any issues. If anyone is wanting to join one of the above teams do get in touch with Paul.
