Welcome! This group is ideal for folks with a basic or better knowledge of the game of Bridge, giving you the opportunity to play casual, fun bridge games. Most games are online, but some face to face games are also organised.
Most members are aged from about thirty up to sixties, and there is approximately an equal number of ladies and men in the group. Players coming on their own or as a pair welcome. We play on up to three days each week, with one or two virtual tables usually*.
This group was set-up for face to face bridge games in the Ascot and Wokingham areas, but most games are done online through the excellent Bridgebase.com website and we can chat verbally (and see each other whilst playing if attendees wish) using WhatsApp or a video calling service (Teams, Zoom or Skype). As most games are online your location is not important to us. Most members are from East (or central) Berkshire (incl. Ascot, Reading and Wokingham), but we also have have a few members from other countries! As long as you can speak English your membership is welcome.
*Occasional in person meetups are also organised in the Ascot, Windsor, Reading or Wokingham area (esp. during 'normal times'). In theory in person meetups in other places would also be possible.
Happy to show you how to use the Bridge Base site before you play in one of our online sessions.
**Note: A photo of yourself is required to attend events - so we can properly welcome you (in person and/or online). Note: This is a private group so photos are not available to non-members.
Spectators are also welcome at our online events. Any questions please contact the main organizer's David or myself. Hope to welcome you to the group soon!
