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.

Mixed Pairs Championship

Congratulations to Clare Blake and Peter Sumption on winning the 2017 Deva Mixed Pairs Championship.

For full information, results and a picture click on the appropriate entry in the competitions menu.

Ladies' County Pairs - rescheduled

The Ladies' County Pairs competition for the Preece Rosebowl has now been rescheduled for 1pm on Sunday 25th June.

This is a level 4 event played over 2 sessions.

Entry fees are £10 per person including a meal - payable on the day.

Supervised play on Thursday afternoons

Just a quick reminder that, now that this year's beginners and improvers courses have finished, the Thursday afternoon slot is used for supervised play.

This is a great opportunity to practice what you have learned on "real" bridge hands and runs until the end of July. Turn up, pay and play just as you would for lessons: 1pm arrival, 1:15-4pm play.

Building development project

The committee is very grateful to Paul Holt for agreeing to act as Project Coordinator. This is a very demanding role and absolutely vital to ensure that the development meets our needs and is affordable - and of course to minimise disruption while works are in progress. However Paul cannot do this on his own and is already setting up teams to work on each aspect of the overall plan.

Many thanks to Paul and to all those who are already, or will be, helping to make this development a success.

Deva chosen to represent county

Once again the Deva has been chosen to represent Cheshire & Merseyside County Bridge Association in the EBU's Garden Cities Trophy in which each county chooses a club to represent them. This year the honour falls to Chris Pope, Andy Prothero, Paul Roberts, Julian Merrill, David Flacks, Laurence Stone, Matt Foster and John Hampson - good luck guys!

And before you ask, no I have no idea why it is called the Garden Cities Trophy - nothing to do with the 19th century urban planning movement as far as I can tell.

Fearn Cup final

Congratulations to Frank Salt the winner of the Fearn Cup final which was held on Sunday 9th April.
