Thursday afternoons
Thursday afternoons

In July the club introduced a regular session on Thursday afternoons, 1-4 p.m. The aim has been to play 15-18 boards in a relaxed but competitive fashion with help on hand with the bidding, and time to discuss one of the hands in detail at the end. 

This is aimed at "Fledglings", those who have learnt in the last 2 years, but everyone is invited to attend. It is hoped to get the newer members more integrated into the club and used to playing more boards, so that they may feel confident to attend other club sessions.

Please note that the 2018 season for these sessions has now finished.

The 2019 season will resume on 10th January.


Tuesday host


There is no official host list for Tuesday evening.

If you would like to play but need a partner, please ring Pauline Holden on 01254 351925. She will be pleased to try to find a partner for you.
