Welcome to Northfield Learners Club
Electronic Scoring

♠  ♣  We have introduced electronic scoring in the Learn and Play group as a response to members requests. This system is used in the main club and has several benefits over paper scoring.  The supervisor or a regular player will be able to give advice to anyone who is new to this.  Please ask if you have any queries. ♠  ♣  

Scoring contacts

♠  ♣  Your results will appear on the website but we also use Pianola which emails members a breakdown of their results. I don't have phone numbers or contact details for some of the group.  I would be grateful if you could all let me have up to date info either by email to or by hand on Thursday evenings when I am almost always at the club.***Ifyou regularly get Pianola emails then I will have your email address but if you don't, I don't. Many thanks, Sarah Smith, ♣  ♠  

We need your contact details

We are trying to collect contact details for all who attend the Learn and Play sessions. This will allow us to let you know about any events that may be of interest and also helps us to get you registered with Pianola (for results emails) and the EBU if you are not already registered. We will not forward your contact details to any other third parties.

Please complete the form.

Many thanks

Club Room
Our Northfield Learners' Group room at the Working Mens Club is now beautifully refurbished, so come along and enjoy our new 'home'.  
It may occasionally be needed for another function at the WMC, in which case we can still fit in nicely in the main concert room, along with the main bridge club.
Northfield Learners Club

Welcome to Northfield Learners Club webpages.

The 'Learn and Play' club started in 2008 and pictured below are some of current group playing in the Middle Lounge of the Working Men's Club on 7 May 2015. 

The club aims to cater firstly for players who have recently attended a learner group and now need somewhere to practice what they have they learned, and secondly those players who have  played a little - perhaps some time ago but wish to brush up on their bridge before moving to a 'proper' club.

Players are allowed to discuss with each other what they should bid, lead etc. and they may refer to any training notes they wish to - we are more interested in seeing players being comfortable with what they are doing, rather than being too harsh about precisely following rules and regulations which would be the case in a serious bridge club.   

Have a click round these pages. There's lots of information, but if you want to know more, please do not hesitate to telephone or e-mail David Motley or Peter Nicholds.

Learn and Play Club
At the Learn and Play Club we aim to play 12-16 boards over two and a half or three hours, meeting at 7.00 p.m. to be ready for a 7.15 p.m. start.

Less experienced players who have some knowledge of bridge are invited to join us. Enquiries welcome.

Look on the main menu 'Learn and Play club rules' tab for more information.    

You do not need to come with a partner- our 'supervisor' for the evening will partner you if there is an odd number of players.
