A welcome from club president Annie Mead
A welcome from club president Annie Mead

Welcome to our website and to the Deva Bridge Club. I am very grateful for the opportunity to serve as President of such a well-run, friendly and welcoming bridge club.

We have a wide-ranging programme of bridge playing sessions, events and very popular lessons, designed to suit all levels of experience. Volunteer hosts are available if you do not have a partner.

You can find lots of useful information on this website and our Facebook page. If you have any queries about the club please see contact details below the menu on this webpage.

Gentle duplicate - 2017 season

The club runs a programme of "gentle duplicate" sessions every year designed to help people get used to playing duplicate bridge. These sessions start out quite slowly (playing no more than 18 boards in an evening) and gradually build up to a full 24 board session. There is plenty of help available and there is a host so you can still participate even if you don't have a partner.

This year's programme will start on 15th March and run every Wednesday evening until 30th August. We suggest that you arrive no later than 6:45pm to be ready for a 7pm start and we expect to finish around 10pm. For further information contact Arthur Orme or email gd@devabridgeclub.co.uk.
