Welcome to Halifax Bridge Club
Taylor Cup Mixed Pairs

Congratulations to Christine Bennett and Michael Emmott who won the Taylor Cup Mixed Pairs and to Shirley Blamires and Derek France who were runners-up, also thanks to Edward Lea and Stephen Cordingley for directing. The next event is the Kath Grimoldby Simultanous Pairs which will take place on Thursday 14th September.

Beginners Course

Learn to play Bridge with friendly and experienced Bridge tutor Mick Clark, now accredited by the EBU as a

'Professional Bridge Teacher'.

A new Beginners course in partnership with Calderdale Adult Learning starts Thursday 21st September, and the first 2 lessons are free taster lessons so that you can see if it’s for you.

The Club has a dedicated training room with varied teaching aids, including a large display screen and PowerPoint presentations. The Club also has a licenced bar, large kitchen, ground floor playing area and there is ample free on street parking after 6pm.

We will also be providing a free play session for Beginners for 6 months from the start of October until the end of March, on an evening during the week from 6.45pm until about 9.30pm.

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 9.30pm, but if you can get there for 6.30pm Mick will do a quick revision of the previous weeks lesson.

For more details or to book a place contact Mick at mclark2@gmail.com or on 07927 409142.

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.

Pianola

Halifax Bridge Club is trying out Pianola on a free trial for the next 12 months.

Pianola is an internet based set of smart tools for bridge clubs and players which helps with club administration and provides members with a personal history of their results (starting from now), analysis of their performance by role and by partner, a member directory and a partner-finder which is superior to the one on this website.

Members that we have an email address for will have already received an email inviting them to access these features by creating a username and a password.

We hope that you will make the most use of Pianola that you can and in 12 months’ time let us know what you think.

Hosted sessions

Tuesday evening sessions are now being hosted.

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

Wednesday nights are also hosted. They are open events and are EBU-scoring, but are managed at a pace suited to encourage improvers to attend and progress.

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 group's 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.

Friday 25th August the topic is "Pianola"

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.

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.
