Welcome to Halifax Bridge Club
Dorothy Greenwood

It is with great regret that we have to announce the passing of one of our longer serving members, Dorothy Greenwood.  Although ill health caused Dorothy to cease playing at the club a year or two ago she was a regular attender for many years and will be remembered as a formidable opponent and an excellent partner.  Funeral details will be announced when available.

'50 / 50' Open Event update

The club will be holding a ‘fifty/fifty’ event on the evening of Tuesday 28th November.  Essentially this is a normal pairs night with one winning pair.  The table money will be divided into two, rounded in favour of the club, and one half will be used as prize money!  A small part will be used to fund another Halifax initiative, the median prize, which will be awarded to the pair scoring closest to 50%.

Thus with 8 tables, the distribution would be £48/£48, and the £48 prize money would be split into £40 and £8 per pair.  The distribution of the monies will be at the sole discretion of the director.  This is an open event and we absolutely welcome visitors.

Please let Grant know if you intend to take part.

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.

Sunday Teams

There are some good performances to report from the second fixtures of the season on 12th November.  The 'A' team won 15-5 at home to Beauchief 'B' while the 'B' team won by a convincing margin of 18-2 away to Brighouse 'C'.  Unfortunately, our 'C' team suffered a 15-5 defeat away to Wetherby 'D'.

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.

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.
