Friday Bridge at the County

County Bridge Club is keen to promote the availability of local bridge on Friday evenings.  For an experimental period starting on September 18th, players (and that includes non-members) are invited to play FREE of charge.

Bridge players of all standards are invited to participate in an evening's friendly bridge session that is not available elsewhere in Leicestershire on a Friday evening.  Whenever the number of players is appropriate, consideration will be given to playing teams instead of pairs but there will be no requirement to form a team in advance.

If you intend to play, it would be helpful if you would inform either Richard Tyler (0116 279 2489 or 0788 757 5207) or Keith Preston (0116 283 0978) beforehand.  Please arrive by 7:00pm for a prompt 7:15 start.  Master point rules will apply so non-members should, if possible, bring their EBU number with them.  

We look forward to welcoming you to St. James Road and trust that you will enjoy an evening of competitive but non-aggressive bridge.
