Welcome to Blackburn & Ribble Valley Bridge Club

Congratulations to John and Judy Brearley on winning the Mixed Pairs at the EBU Overseas Congress being held in Halkidiki.

They finished well ahead of the field with over 66%.

 

Blackburn & Ribble Valley Bridge Club

 

We have comfortable ground floor premises with excellent parking, located just off the Blackburn ring road at the very end of Pleckgate Road.  Visiting pairs are always welcome ( except for Seeded Teams on the first and third Tuesdays when pre-entry is essential ), and a host system operates at most sessions except Tuesday evenings.

We use computer-dealt hands and electronic scoring. The results are available at the end of each session and are uploaded to our website together with the hands.

We offer a class with a highly experienced teacher for improvers.
For information about the club or lessons, please ring Judy Brearley (Chairman ) on 01257 411256 or Annabel Thomas (Secretary) on 01254 824633.
