Welcome to Bishop’s Stortford Bridge Section

Come and join us!


The club is open to anyone who has any type of membership at Bishops Stortford golf club including social membership. Social membership is open to all, you do not have to play golf to be a social member. A duplicate session takes about 3 hours and you get to play some 20 sets of bridge games.

Why would you want to join? The club is well established, thriving and active and has a wide range of members and skills. The bridge is played in comfortable, sociable surroundings throughout the year. There is a large private car park just outside the club house. Duplicate is played Friday afternoons in the winter and every Monday evening throughout the year.

Are you Novice / Beginner/ Wishing to Learn ?

You may be a complete novice wishing to learn to play. You may have played other card games but not bridge. Whist, Cribbage and Poker have some similarities but bridge is a little more complex.

We have regular courses of lessons by a registered EBTA bridge teacher. These are usually held in the autumn and winter months in the early evening at the clubhouse. These are open to non-members for a modest fee which is rebated if you subsequently become a social member of the golf club. Once you have learnt we have regular supervised play sessions for beginners/learners.

We are basing our lessons on the new “Fast Track” approach to learning bridge recently launched by EBED (English Bridge Education & Development ), this enables you to learn and play relatively quickly. For more on what learning bridge can be about visit their website on http://www.ebedcio.org.uk/learn.

You can play some Bridge

You may be able to play bridge and wish to improve. Playing duplicate is a great way to improve as you get to see how the hand has been bid and played by others.

We have intermediate sessions to improve your bridge before playing duplicate.
