Welcome

Welcome to 2021. We have a range of in-Club and online Bridge sessions, Events, Beginners Lessons, Intermediate lessons and advanced lessons planned for this year - COVID-19 willing of course. Please check back frequently and read our newsletter for the latest news about upcoming events and changes to sessions.

Here's a preview of some upcoming events:

CBCPay - Table money without the hassles

Since February the CBC has begun using a new table-money payment system. We call it "CBCPay". Please take the time to read our webapge about the system and fill in a Sign-Up form.The system is open to Members (for in-Club and online) and is required for all RealBridge (online) players (including Visitors).

Our aim is over the next month to have all active CBC members paying table money through CBCPay. Accommodations are made for Visitors to continue paying with $13 vouchers or exact cash.

Thank you to every member who has already signed up to using CBCPay. We hope it saves you time, and know it allows our Directors and Managers to redirect their time towards members, visitors, improving the Club and promoting Bridge.

Face-to-face Bridge at CBC

The Committee has written CBC’s Safety Plan in order to ensure face-to-face bridge sessions are as safe as possible for everyone. You must read it and abide by it as a condition of entry.
