Yorkshire Sims - Rd 3Thursday 13 June
We have a great opportunity this year in that we will be running a Director's Course here in Halifax for the EBU (previously delegates have had to travel as far as Southport and Wetherby to do the course).
The course will be run over 4 Sundays
01 Sep : How to run a club duplicate (optional)
29 Sep : Day 1 : Book Rulings
06 Oct : Day 2 : Book & Judgement Rulings
20 Oct : Assessment
If you would be interested in doing the course or if you would be interested in helping make up the hands or scoring please speak to a member of the 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 four 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 afternoons are hosted by the Director. Learners, newcomers and visitors are positively welcomed. 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, there is no visitor surcharge and help is freely available. Please be there for 6.50pm.
