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.

The club phone number is: 01254 245537

♠     ♥           

Congratulations to Paul and Lynn Hepworth, Barrie and Julia Newall on winning the Carysforth Cup two-session Championship Teams in a very tight finish with Dagmar Fazackerley and John Wilson/ Pauline Holden, Ken Renno and Brian Ripley.

The victory points were equal, the head to head was also equal, therefore a conversion to international match points was needed to decide the result, the winning team only three points ahead.
