Bridge at The Cumberland
The CLTC Bridge Club is a friendly vibrant section, with most members having played tennis or squash together for many years. We encourage new members to join, with seven new people signing up this year and current membership running at 45 – 55 players. Members are also able to bring guests.
Bridge is played at the Club alternate Friday evenings from September to July, starting at 7:15pm. We play mainly Duplicate or Teams, with prizes provided for the winners. Tables are set up in the Ramus Room and we break for a buffet supper at around 8:45pm, for which we charge a £10.00 fee. We also play matches against other tennis, golf and cricket clubs, with trophies being competed for annually. There is ladies bridge in the mornings where teams compete for the Gerber Cup.
A Bridge Noticeboard is displayed in the main CLTC Clubhouse on the mezzanine area opposite Squash Court 3. This board displays details of dates and the forms required to sign up for the various days of play. All sign ups should be made by 12:00 noon on the day of play.
The chairperson of the Bridge Club is Shirley Gumpel, who can be contacted at email@example.com, and she is ably assisted on the Committee by Sue Boucher (Treasurer), Sally Cass, Maeve Feeny and James Barlow. For those players looking to join the section, please contact Shirley in the first instance. Shirley is also the best person to speak to should you require a partner for any of the sessions.
