We are a friendly, thriving club in West Devon. Bridge is played in our own clubhouse complete with several playing rooms and refreshment facilities. We cater for all standards of bridge player and provide a full range of courses for beginners and improvers.
Do come and try us - bridge is a great social activity. You will be made very welcome. We look forward to seeing you. Please contact Judy Ripley on 01752 893524 or Richard Ayres on 01752 600822 for further information about bridge sessions and lessons.
To enable decoration to take place the club will be closed from Thursday evening 20 Dec 2018 until morning 3 January 2019.

Devon Pairs Heat Thursday 31 Jan 2019
In order to allow greater participation the Competions Commitee have decided this year to run the qualifying heat for the Devon Pairs during the afternoon bridge on Thursday 31 January 2019.
Those who score 50% or more during that afternoon can opt to play in the Devon Pairs event at Exeter on Sunday 17 Feb (cost £24 per pair). You are allowed only one attempt to qualify for this event and if you qualify will be asked if you wish to go to Exeter.
We are pleased to report that the repairs to the roof are nearly complete and the two leaks have been rectified.
We are in the process of getting the decorators back to finish the work on the top floor once the wall is dry, and the builder back to level the floor on the first floor landing. We will then be ready to replace the carpet for the hall, stairs and landings.
We are now turning our attention to the main bridge room with a view to redecoration, renewing the curtains and tablecloths and cleaning the carpet. We would also like to modernise the lighting.
One thing we are considering is what to do about the wooden panelling. Our current view is that we should retain the panelling and either re-varnish (keeping it brown) or paint the wood in a light pastel colour (grey or light blue for example).
The building working party Ailie, Charles and myself would like to hear members’ views before deciding how to proceed.
