Macmillan Coffee Morning10am to 1pmFriday 28 SeptemberDave Morris Swiss TeamsMonday 15 October
The Club will be open between 10 am and 1 pm on Friday, 28 September for a Macmillan Coffee Morning and we plan to play some Chicago Bridge..
The Dave Morris Swiss Teams Annual Club Championship is to be played on
Monday October 15th.
Because of the nature of the competition we need to have an even number of Teams, with a minimum of 8 Teams for the competition to be valid. For this reason, members wishing to play are asked to put their names down on the list on the notice board at the club.
If there is an odd number of teams it will be a case of first come first served, with the last team becoming reserves. So, if you would like to play it is advisable to get your names down as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
If you put your names down to play, but then find that you are unable to play, please ensure that your names are removed from the list.
Entries close on Friday October 12th.
The hands will be made-up at 5pm on the evening, anyone wishing to witness or assist making-up the hands should be there for that time.
Players to be seated by 6.45pm.
“Members who have played at the club a minimum of 12 times in the past 12 months or 6 times in the last 3 months shall be eligible to play in this competition. Any variation from this shall be at the discretion of the committee”.
A new Beginners course in partnership with Calderdale Adult Learning will now start on Tuesday 25th September one week later than planned, and the first 2 lessons are free taster lessons so that you can see if it’s for you.
The Club has a dedicated first floor training room with modern teaching facilities, including a large display screen and PowerPoint presentations. The Club also has a licensed bar, large kitchen, ground floor playing area and there is ample free on street parking after 6pm.
Students start with the absolute basics of the game and by week 30 will be able to play a competent game of bridge. It is hoped that once the students have completed the Beginners course they will join the club as Member’s (£10) and start playing in Improvers sessions, and follow on to the Improvers course.
The course is 30 weeks long and lesson costs are £30 for each block of 10 lessons, plus £20 for the EBU course book “Beginning Bridge” which covers the full 30 week-course.
Lessons are from 7pm until about 9.15pm, but if you can get there for 6.30pm Mick will do a quick revision of the previous weeks lesson.

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.
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.
