PARKING AT BARLEYLANDS

Due to the fact that on two occasions recently cars parked in the "office" car park have been damaged

 parking is no longer allowed in the office car park at the rear of the kitchen area

There is also no parking allowed outside the sheds further down as there is often the need to get farm machinery in and out of the sheds

Please park in the main car park  The after hours gate code is clearly visible inside the club

First Class Bridge Academy and Club

Welcome to the website of First Class Bridge

Now the 31st biggest club in the country. 

 

There is bridge played at Barleylands every day from Monday to Saturday catering for every level from complete beginners to the very highest echelon of bridge players. Most sessions are hosted so you can just turn up and play without a partner.

There are regular starter courses for complete beginners and a number of supervised bridge sessions for those wishing to go to the next level.

Bernie would like Club members to be aware of the EBU (English Bridge Union) Members Area (click on the heading above) which enables you to see your Master Points and NGS (National Grading System) rating. Set up initially requires Bernie to send your email address to the EBU (you can subsequently remove it) so your password can be emailed to you. If you'd like to be set up, please let Bernie know your email address (via firstclassbridge@btconnect.com).
