Welcome to Burwash Duplicate Bridge Club
BURWASH DUPLICATE BRIDGE CLUB
BURWASH DUPLICATE BRIDGE CLUB

 

We are a new bridge club which meets every Friday afternoon in Burwash  at The Wheel Inn. Our aim is to welcome all bridge players who would like to play in a friendly, enjoyable atmosphere which is slightly more competitive than playing at home.

Although a knowledge of the game is requested there is no requirement for prevoius experience at playing duplicate bridge and there is no requirement to come with a partner as we have Hosts who will pair you up with another member. 

Please arrive at 1.40pm at the latest so that we can start promptly and to give us time for refreshments.

OUR MANTRA IS FRIENDSHIP, ENJOYMENT AND A HAPPY SOCIAL AFTERNOON PLAYING BRIDGE

There is a very useful Guidance on General Etiquette at Bridge on the News Page.  It is not something to be of worry to anyone, as it appears to be very complicated, but it is the way most of us already play Bridge at `Burwash Duplicate Bridge Club'.  It is listed for Information and Guidance and to be perused at leisure.  Any queries about this or any other matter please refer to the Director at time of play or the Chairman any other time.

Why do People Play Bridge?

Why do people play bridge?

 'Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty.  Anyone who keeps learning stays young.  The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.Henry Ford

''No matter where I go, I can always make new friends at the bridge table.'  Martina Navratilova

The health and wellbeing benefits of Bridge.  'Recent academic work has shown a link between mental activity and maintenance - or even improvements - in mental health and wellbeing. From research by Stirling University, in conjunction with the charity English Bridge Education and Development, found that playing bridge has a statistically significant positive effect on wellbeing. Other studies have found that activities such as playing bridge reduces the incidences of dementia.

♣ Bridge is also recognised as an important contributor to socialisation, with many people enjoying the 'community spirit' that exists within a bridge club.'  English Bridge Union

Please Help Us All by Arriving a Few Minutes Earlier

Playing at a Bridge Club is fun, but please could you all come 20 minutes earlier to help set up the room, put tables out and shuffle the cards for the boards. 

Coming just a few mimutes earlier does considerably help us all, as, it seems, there are only a few faithful people (a big thank you to them) who help us every session.

However, if more people help in the setting up, the time taken to do this task is considerably reduced.  Hopefully we can all have fun doing this.

Please, we need your help now, and we will greatly appreciate your efforts.  Thank you.
