Random Teams Taster
Monday 25 JuneIndividual Championship(Clarice Sutcliffe Cup)
Wednesday 11 JulyFull list click here.
Congratulations to Andy Hardy and Martin Evans who won the Club Pairs Annual Competition on Thursday evening.
Your next chance to acquire some silverware is on Wednesday 11 July when the Individual Championship for the Clarice Sutcliffe Cup will take place.
This involves your playing with several partners throughout the evening which is both fun and challenging.
Bidding systems will be restricted to simple conventions.
Full details of how the competition will run and an entry sheet will be posted here on the web and on the Club notice board by the end of June.
To boost player numbers on Monday evenings, we are going to try an initiative suggested by a member. That is to invite members who don’t usually play on a Monday evening to join the Monday evening regulars to play in a Random Teams Taster on Monday 25th June. Teams are played in the same way very much that pairs are played but are scored differently in that teams scoring is much more forgiving than pairs scoring, if you don’t make an extra trick
The evening will be hosted by volunteers, so you can turn up as an individual or a pair, but not as an already established team of 4 (because it wouldn’t be fair for a team put together on the night to play against an already established team of 4). Individuals will be found a partner, then pairs will be assigned to a team by the director who will make the teams as equal as possible.
Table money will be £3.00, but it will not be an EBU event. The members of the winning team will each receive a voucher for a free play.
We all hope to see you there.
Thank you…Your Committee
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.
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.
Tuesday afternoon are hosted by the Director and learners are positively welcomed, newcomers and visitors! A small amount of help can be given to absolute beginners or those unfamiliar with duplicate. Please be there for 12.50pm.
Wednesday evening sessions are hosted on a "Last Person Standing" basis. i.e. the last person to arrive at the club without a partner becomes the host.
Friday evening sessions are hosted by the Director, do not have a visitor surcharge and help is freely available. Please be there for 6.50pm.
