Congratulations to Rodney Lighton and John Currie on winning our Open Swiss Pairs on 13th May.
In second place were Bill Alston and Andrew Petrie and third Howard Stubbings and Dhun Daji.
The club has now moved to Blackburn Northern Sports Club, which is located on Pleckgate Road, just off the Blackburn ring road.
We have comfortable ground floor premises with parking and with disabled access/facilities.
Visitors are always welcome (except Seeded Teams on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays, when pre-entry is essential), and a host system operates on Monday evenings and Friday afternoons.
We use computer-dealt hands and electronic scoring. The results are available at the end of each session and are also uploaded to our website together with the hands.
We offer a class with a highly experienced teacher for improvers.
For further information about the club or lessons, please ring Judy Brearley (Chairman) on 01257 411256 or Annabel Thomas (Secretary) on 01254 824633.

On Sunday we had a full complement of twelve tables for our first open competition at Northern for which we were very pleased to have the services of leading director Neil Morley. We thank him for running the event so efficiently.
The event was judged a great success by all, thanks to the efforts of many members, in particular Annabel and the catering team who provided an excellent buffet meal.
Finally, thank you to the players from so many different clubs for their support.
The committee request that you please be seated 10 minutes prior to the beginning of play, 12.50 p.m. on Monday afternoons, 1.05 p.m. on Friday afternoons and 6.50 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday evenings, so that the director is able to set up the scoring programme and Bridgemates for a prompt start.
Our playing area
There is no official host list for Tuesdays. If you would like to play but have no partner, please ring Pauline Holden on 01254 351925.
