Club Pairs (Adams Cup)
Thursday 14 JuneFull list click here.
On Wednesday evening 16th May there was a meeting of those members who would like to see Wednesday evenings hosted.
At the meeting 3 options for hosting were discussed.
2. Central Point of Contact (CPoC); Anyone looking for a partner on a Wednesday evening would ring the CPoC to let the CPoC know that they were looking for a partner. That person would then become the host for that Wednesday evening, if a second person rang the CPoC, they would be paired with the (host) first person that rang. If a third person rang the CPoC they would then become the new host for that Wednesday evening, this would continue until everyone looking for a partner were paired up or there was 1 (host) person left without a partner. The advantage of this system would be that if there was 1 (host) person left without a partner they would know in advance and wouldn’t need to travel to the club.
3. Last person standing; The last person to arrive at the club without a partner would become the host.
The members at the meeting voted to try option 3. Last person standing; for 2 months.
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.
