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 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.

Thursday Afternoon and Friday Evening Bridge

Thursday afternoon and Friday evening sessions are being preceded upstairs, for anyone who is interested, with a 20 to 30-minute presentation/discussion on a Bridge related subject of the groups choice or one that is felt to be relevant. If you would like to join the presentation please be there for 12.15pm or 6.15pm respectively.

Thursday 29th June the topic is “Opening Leads". Friday 30th June the topic is "Balanced Hand Openings"

If you just want to play please be there for 12.45pm or 6.45pm respectively. Please also remember that these sessions are hosted so you can turn up without a partner.

Tuesday Afternoon Bridge

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!

Club Pairs

Congratulations to Andrew Hardy and Stephen Cordingley on winning the Club Pairs and to David Friis and Stuart Swaine who were runners-up, also many thanks to Alan McDonald and Andrew Mitchell for directing.

The next competition is the Clarice Sutcliffe Individual on Wednesday 19th July.

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
