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.

County Update

Congratulations to John Brearley who, playing with his partner Don Hilton, came second out of the forty pairs taking part in the B division of the National Inter-County Final which was held in Coventry on 10th July.

 

Dave Pendlebury again captained the annual Lancashire v Cumbria match for the Pearse McNamara Trophy, which was held at Barrow Bridge Club on 10th July.  Well done to Dave and his partner Judy Brearley, who had a high plus score which helped to ensure that Lancashire regained the trophy this year. Other team members from Blackburn were Pauline Holden and Robin Atkinson, Julia and Barrie Newall.

 

Also well done to Paul Hepworth who, playing with his partner Richard Bentley, had a very good plus score playing for Lancashire in the A division of the Northern Bridge League first round matches on 16th July.

The 2016 northern inter-county matches are due to begin in mid-July.

Congratulations to all our club players who have been selected to represent Lancashire this season:

Need a partner?

A new service for members.

Pauline Holden has kindly agreed to organise a new way to help you find a partner when needed on a Tuesday or Thursday evening. This will not affect the Host Rota which will run as normal on Thursday evenings. If you need a partner, please ring Pauline on 01254 351925.

Start times

The committee requests that players please be seated by 1.05pm for afternoon sessions and by 6.50pm for evening sessions to enable the director and scorer to set up the scoring programme and bridgemates for a prompt start. If possible, please phone the club if you are on the way but delayed for some reason.
