Welcome to Halifax Bridge Club
Mary Barrett

It is with great sadness that we must inform members that Mary Barrett passed away on Tuesday 9th January, as a result of a fall and subsequent complications.  Mary was a well-liked and respected member of our club who joined not long after its inception.  A familiar figure, always dapper and smiling, she preferred to sit in the bay window area and played well into her nineties.  Failing vision stopped her driving and playing and her last visit to the club was to celebrate her centenary, helped by many friends old and new.  Mary was in her own way an inspiration to many and will be sadly missed.  Mary’s funeral will be held on Thursday 8th February, 11.15h at Parkwood crematorium.

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.

Tuesday Evening Special Event

The first of the 2018 Tuesday evening special events will take place on the 30th January, being a belated celebration of the birthday of Robbie Burns.  To this end, a celebratory dram of best Speyside malt (with the compliments of the president) and traditional shortbread will be offered to all players.  Haggis of course cannot be offered as the season is now closed until 12th August. The session will be run as a fifty/fifty, the table money being awarded on a 50/40/10 basis as follows – club: winning pair: pair nearest to 50%- rounded for convenience. To celebrate Scottish poets, there will be a few short verses from a McGonagall masterpiece. As usual, the event is open to all.

Sunday Teams

There are some good results to report for the first set of team matches of 2018. The 'B' team won away 3-17 against York 'E' to maintain their position at the top of Division 9. The 'A' team also had an excellent win away at Wakefield 'C' where the result was 2-18. Sadly, the 'C' team lost at home by 5-15 to league leaders Huddersfield 'E'.
