The last in the present series of Tuesday evening “special” events will again feature a 50:40:10% (club: winner: nearest to 50%) distribution of table money as prizes. However, it will be scored as a handicap, using the EBU handicap system. If, for example, your average is 54% you will have 4% deducted from your score. Similarly, those with an average of 44% will have 6% added! The handicap used will be that which is current on the 1st April 2018 and it is hoped that this will attract some of our less experienced players. Match Points will of course be awarded on the gross scores. As is usual for these special events, guests will be most welcome and the event will be hosted.
The Annual Subscription was due from 1 April 2018. Prompt payment is always appreciated.
Payment can be made by either:
1. Direct Bank Transfer – To; Sort Code: 60-09-27; Account Number: 80967922; Reference: Your Full Name/Names.

The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25th May 2018. The item which will affect members the most is: -
“Clubs should not issue lists of members' contact details (telephone numbers and email addresses) to all their members. Any such list that is made available should only contain the details of members who have specifically agreed to this. Any clubs that currently publish such a list should contact all members on it to ask whether they wish to remain on the list. They should be asked to “opt in” to this - it is not permissible for the default to be to include them unless they opt out”.
Halifax Bridge Club has from time to time (usually on request) produce a printed copy of the “List of Members' Contact Details (telephone numbers and email addresses)”, so that members can contact each other to arrange partnerships and dates to play Bridge. A similar list is also available on the password protected sections of both the website and Pianola.
Therefore, because of the new regulation, over the next couple of weeks we will be asking all members if they agree to “opt in” to their telephone numbers and email addresses being included in the “List of Members' Contact Details (telephone numbers and email addresses)”. Any decision that you make can be reversed at any time.
Welcome to the website of the club that offers duplicate bridge sessions for young and old. The club has its own private premises and is well established, providing duplicate bridge sessions for over 160 members. It is a member of the English Bridge Union and the majority of the club events generate EBU Masterpoints. There are also occasional sessions that tie in with simultaneous county or national events. In addition to a comfortable playing area, the club has its own kitchen and licensed bar.
Halifax Bridge Club has three teams of eight players that compete during the winter months in the Yorkshire Sunday League.
Members will be aware that we have privileged, free use of some parking spaces in Clare Hall, opposite the club. However, that use is under threat because of cars not being parked 'tight' to the wall and obstructing the road to residents. Members are asked to pull in to within a foot of the wall in future, dropping off passengers prior to parking. This concession is invaluable to us and members are asked to comply to safeguard this facility.
One of the main advantages for members of Pianola is its “Partner Finder”. If you are interested in playing at any time, but don’t have a partner, please try the “Partner Finder” in Pianola. The mechanism for finding a partner in Pianola is by placing an “Advert”, like the partner finder on this website, but Pianola has the benefit that you can set certain preferences.
