The Price of Bridge

How much do you pay to play?

This must vary a lot according to the type of club. I think clubs which have their own premises and maintenance costs must need to charge quite a lot to keep the club going. I know that some hire out their rooms to make ends meet.

Most clubs pay rent on their rooms or, like mine, are part of a bigger club. At Daten Bridge Club we charge £1 per session which is not much. I think their would be a riot if we tried to charge more. This covers our expensese but prize money has had to be reduced recently.

Is there a case for increasing the session fee to get better prize money or better equipment. What happens in your club. Is Bridge run on a shoestring budget?
