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 Mike Ivison (Chairman ) on 01254 201608 or Annabel Thomas (Secretary) on 01254 824633.

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.
