Bridge Report 2015
Bridge at the Cumberland continues to be a lively and interesting section. We have 40 – 45 members, many who also play at the Acol Club, or Ace of Clubs. There are regular teaching sessions with Ian Pagan, an English International player.
We play alternate Fridays, in the warm and spacious Ramus Room, using Bridgemate scoring for our bridge sessions, kindly run by Tonty Corby and Peter Davies. We are grateful for catering support from Rob and Adrianna, who provide us with ever tasty finger buffets.
We play annual matches against The All England Club, Roehamption, Coolhurst, Hurlingham, the Globe, Lords and The RAC. Also regular matches against various Golf Clubs – Hampstead, Highgate and Hendon – including the very popular Gerber Cup for ladies. We put teams into the Devonshire Cup and The Lord’s open day. This season we have won seven matches and lost four.
Our Chairman is Shirley Gumpel and the Committee are Sally Cass, Maeve Feeny, James Barlow and Sue Boucher, the treasurer.
We always like to welcome new members from the Club and look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.
