Welcome to Halifax Bridge Club
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.

Derek Burley

It is with great regret that we announce the death of Derek Burley.  He and his friends have travelled from Holmfirth to our club for many years on a Tuesday afternoon, and Derek contributed materially and socially to our Christmas get together.  The Tuesday afternooners will miss an affable, courteous and capable gentleman who played the game in the spirit it deserves.  Our condolences go out to his family.

Kath Grimoldby Simultanous Pairs

Congratulations to Andrew Hardy and Stephen Cordingley, Rose Benson and Neil Robertshaw, Moira Wadsworth and Andrew Mitchell, and Suzanne Rawnsley and Janet Jackson. Many thanks also to Andrew Mitchell and Gordon Wheale for officiating. For a full list of results please click here. The next event is the "Open Event" on Tuesday 26th September.  For more details see below.

Open Event (Now fully booked)

Halifax Bridge Club will soon be celebrating 70 years since it was first launched as a private contract bridge club for the peoples of Halifax and area. To mark this we will be holding an open event on Tuesday 26th September.
 

The winning pair on that evening will be awarded a £50-00 prize, to be given after HBC carries out its normal procedural checks.
 

This event is now fully booked and we can accept no further entries. The club may well run this event again in the future, but so far no dates have been set.

Pianola “Partner Finder”

One of the main advantages for members of Pianola is its “Partner Finder”. If you are interested in playing at any time, but don’t have a partner, please try the “Partner Finder” in Pianola. The mechanism for finding a partner in Pianola is by placing an “Advert”, like the partner finder on this website, but Pianola has the benefit that you can set certain preferences. To find out more go to Pianola then at the bottom of the page click on “Support Centre” or click on this link http://support.pianola.net/

Hosted/Relaxed Bridge Sessions

Tuesday afternoon positively welcomes learners, newcomers and visitors! A small amount of help can be given to absolute beginners or those unfamiliar with duplicate.

Wednesday evening sessions are EBU scoring, but are managed at a pace suited to encourage improvers to attend and progress.

Friday evening sessions are being preceded upstairs, 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 6.15pm.

Friday 22nd September the topic is "Doubling"

If you just want to play please be there for 6.45pm. There is no visitor surcharge on Friday night and help is freely available.
