The Hornby Working Men’s Club is one of only several Clubs in New Zealand to have an Independent section covering the game of CRIBBAGE.
Our Crib section has a strong following of 60 Active and Social members, who partake in events from February to December each year.
Our Club night is held every Wednesday night, 7 pm - 9.30 pm and played upstairs in the Alpine Function Room. There is a fee of $3 per person per night. We play 12 games of progressive Crib, in pairs with 4 deals per game. For a more competitive game, our section members are welcome to attend the Sunday Tournaments’ hosted by the various Christchurch Clubs. Each year we also enter a team in the Clubs New Zealand South Island Pairs Tournament and the Clubs New Zealand National Singles Tournament. The Hornby Working Men’s Club are proud to be hosting the next National Tournament in April 2018.
Outside of playing Crib, we hold weekly raffles, a Mid-Winter and Christmas Dinner, an annual Variety night out and we also enter a team in the Clubs “All Sports” nights. We would welcome all Club members to our section. We can cater for various levels of players, from those just wanting to learn this great game, to those who need a refresher or to those who want to be a Club or NZ Champ. So come along and join this vibrant section.
