Welcome to Halifax Bridge Club

 

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 170 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.

Improvers Course May 2017
Relaxed Bridge in Halifax

Tuesday and Thursday afternoon sessions are hosted and we positively welcome newcomers and visitors!  A small amount of help can be given to absolute beginners or those unfamiliar with duplicate. Friday night is also hosted and is an excellent starting point for those entering the fray after lessons or a long time away from the game. Help is freely available and the game is played at a pace to suit learners. There is no visitor surcharge on Friday night, which runs from 7pm to 9-30ish, and of course all are welcome.

Hosted sessions

Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, and Friday evening sessions are hosted: they are relaxed and open to learners and beginners. 

Wednesday nights are open events and are EBU-scoring, but they are managed at a pace suited to encourage improvers to attend and progress. You are welcome to turn up without a partner and be sure of a game.

Find a partner

If you are looking for a partner you can now use this website if you are on email.  Go to 'Find a Partner' in the menu, and log-in using your email address and password. If you have any difficulty, contact Alan on alanpmcd@gmail.com

Friday night bridge

Friday evenings at the club have become established for those wishing to improve their bridge in a relaxed, convivial atmosphere.  You do not need to bring a partner- just turn up for a 7pm start at a cost of only £2-50.  Please speak to Liz (01422 376560) if you have any questions, either as a learner or member wishing to assist.  Alternatively, contact Liz at elizabeth@brooklands5.freeserve.co.uk

Annual General Meeting

The 67th AGM of our club will take place on the 9th May starting at 6-45pm in the playing area. As normal, any resolutions for consideration at the AGM need to be submitted in writing and should be passed to a committee member before 25th April to allow them to appear on the agenda.

An invitation to attend the AGM will be emailed to all with that facility, shortly after the 25th April.  This will contain the agenda, previous minutes and other relevant information.  Hard copies will be available in the club for those without E mail facilities.

Tuesday afternoon Handicaps

In the coming months there will be the usual aggregate on the first Tuesday, an individual session and a new innovation, random pairs. The next trophy competition, in June, will be for the famous Middleton Plate, a handicap event won last year by Yvonne and Stephen.  The Tuesday afternoon sessions start at 1pm and are open to all, with visitors being very welcome.  They are run at a pace which allows inexperienced players to keep up and improve their game, and the mid session break is quite a social occasion!
