Welcome to 2023 at Bassingham Bridge. Our first event will be our Sunday afternoon random seeded teams.
This is a sociable afternoon of bridge for our members, with a break for afternoon tea at approx 4 pm. Competitors enter in pairs and the first half are seeded and then a draw is made to make up the teams. Everyone is welcome to participate. This is a free event for our members.
Please let Pat Haslam have the names of your pair as soon as possible.
Many congratulations to Team B (Andy Milner, Bill Burrows, Geraldine Johnson and Andrew Keeling) for being the first to get through to our Knock Out Final.
Bassingham Bridge Committee wishes all our members a very merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Don’t forget our fun Christmas Evening on 22nd December with mulled wine, sausage rolls and mince pies. The fun bridge is led by our Director Dave.
Bridge re-commences after the Christmas break on Tuesday 3rd January 2023
Disclosure Permission and Membership Confirmation FormThe wonderful thing about Bassingham Bridge Club is our growing membership and the friendly nature of the club. We have for a long number of years been able to run the club on “table money” meaning we have not asked the membership for an annual renewal fee and hence are often not informed when peoples’ details change. They may have in that time decided for their own personal reasons to leave the club, they may have left the area or simply no longer wish to play bridge. It is therefore important both legally and administratively to update our membership records and ensure the information we hold on you is accurate and that we only use it in accordance with your wishes. We also clearly need to understand that you still wish to remain a member Bassingham Bridge Club ( and we hope you do) and hence the number of current members we have.
Under the GDPR the Club is obliged to seek permission from you about what personal information is disclosed to other members in organising its events, leagues, knock out competitions and social events.
Please note that the Club is entitled to publish your name on our website in the results section. No other personal information is on the website without your personal permission
It is most important that you understand you have to ”opt in” to your information being provided for each specific purpose shown below; if not we cannot share your details with other team members or Captains as an example. No information will be shared without your consent. Sadly, we do need one form for each member.
So, I ask you all to please to complete the following form and return it to me:
by printing it, completing it and handing it to me or to any member of the Committee.
Sunday 4th December at 2 pm
We currently have 8 and a half tables for this competition and would really like to make it up to 9 full tables. If any couple would like to take part in this event then please contact me before the end of November.
It is free and for members of Bassingham Bridge Club only.
Details are on the front page of Bassingham Bridge’s website.
Sunday 4th December 2022 2 pm to approximately 6 pm
Our next random seeded competition is a little later this year and being held as above. This is a friendly afternoon of bridge for all abilities. Players enter in pairs and the first half are seeded with the remainder drawn randomly to join them as a team of 4. Play begins at 2 pm and is usually completed by 6 pm. There will be a break half way through when an afternoon tea (sandwiches and cake) will be served.
This competition is open to all Bassingham Bridge Club members. Please submit the names of your pairs to Pat Haslam by the end of November.

Saturday 1st April
At our last committee meeting it was decided to publish the date for the final of the Individual Trophy Competition. This is traditionally held on Saturday and therefore 1st April has been selected. Please keep this date free if you are likely to be involved. The top 8 players are in the final. However, if one were not free it would go to the next best player.
What you have all been waiting for!
The Bridge Break is now back on however it is not in Norfolk. Nigel will be very happy, we are going to Yorkshire but not to Barnsley!
Scarborough at the Pal Court Hotel, same dates as before, Sunday 20th November to Wednesday 23rd. This will be organised on a first come first served basis to keep it fair for all. If you are interested, please complete the attached form. There will be a £100 per person deposit required on booking and we have to be fully paid up one month before we go.
Sorry, but I do promise not to abscond with the proceeds.
