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 classes with highly experienced teachers for both beginners and improvers.
For information about the club or lessons, please ring Mike Ivison (Chairman ) on 01254 201608 or Lynn Hepworth (Secretary) on 01282 422974.

Northern Bridge League

On Saturday the club hosted the second round for the B division of the 2015 northern inter-county competition. Eight teams of eight played, representing Lancashire, North Wales, Cheshire/Merseyside, Cumbria, Westmorland, North East, Yorkshire and Manchester, directed by Ken Johnston from Cumbria.

A beautiful buffet meal was provided and served by members of the club and was greatly appreciated by all players. Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to ensure the success of the day, especially to Annabel for overseeing yet another outside event on behalf of the club.

It is particularly pleasing to report that Lancashire finished in first place, with Brian Ripley and Barrie Newall being members of the winning team.

 

John Brearley and Paul Hepworth, with their respective partners, represented the A division and Dave Pendlebury and Judy Brearley represented the C division, their matches being played in Bradford.

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.
