Welcome to GYB

This is the home of Gloucestershire Youth Bridge - a joint venture by GCBA and the Cheltenham Bridge Club.

Aim: to build our first County Youth Bridge team, and to offer matches to neighbouring counties.

WHERE AND WHEN ?

Youth Bridge sessions will run on Sundays from 29th October until 10th December 2017, and all take place at Cheltenham Bridge Club (4 Tivoli Road, GL50 2TG).    [Next year's schedule will be announced later]

Sessions run from 0930 to 1215, and include a break for refreshments (which are included in the price of £5 per head).

If you have any questions, email them to gyb@gcba.org.uk 

TASTER SESSIONS
TASTER SESSIONS

 

These will run during half term, on each of Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, the 24-26th October 2017.  And there will be no charge - these sessions are free.

The aim of the Taster Sessions is to let young people and their parents or carers find out something about the game, and decide if they want to become regular participants.   We will talk about bridge, show some videos, and try out some of the StarterBridge concepts.

Sessions are running 1000-1100 and 1130-1230 each day, and you can just turn up to any of these; if you come to more than one we have more than enough different things to show and do - you'll not be bored.

Carers can stay during any of these sessions (our cafereria will be serving) or leave the children and return later.

We have a clear, documented Safeguarding Policy and we have DBS-checked personnel on duty throughout.

Why do we Play Bridge ?

BRIDGE IS A CARD GAME THAT IS FUN, FRIENDLY, AND MAKES YOU THINK

  • You just need 4 people and a pack of cards to play anywhere in the world
  • It makes your brain work and every few minutes you have a new challenge
  • You can play for 5 minutes or 5 hours.  Every hand is an adventure.
  • You can sit around any table – on a train – on the floor – in the playground – at home. 
  • Or you can get really good and enter competitions all over the UK and the world!
  • You can play on the internet – maybe with someone in Brazil or Australia?
  • It is as fun and as fascinating as any computer game (and we still beat the computers)
  • Bridge is sociable - it is an easy way to meet people wherever you go.
  • It does not cost much – very important if you are at school or university
  • There is always someone to help you get started or to get better  - just ask us!

What is Youth ?

As far as we are concerned - anyone still at school counts.  Which does means quite an age range and potentially quite a range of experience.  The youngest we see regularly at youth events are about 8 years old but there is occasionally one who is younger.
