PLAY IT AGAIN, SAM

BELIEVED TO BE A MISQUOTE

BUT KEEP READING ANYWAY!

♠ Heap praise in spades

 Treasure your partner

 Friends are like diamonds

♣ Don't club your opponents

Instead of an inquest at the table

use the Play it again feature on

the hand records - it's brilliant!

CAR PARKING
CAR PARKING

Only limited car parking can be allowed on the small Larkhill Centre car park due to the requirements for access for emergency vehicles.  I would urge members to use the large free public car park adjacent to the centre which from January 2016 has a 3 hour time limit with no return within the hour. There are some spaces for blue badge holders near to the path leading to the centre.  There are shortly to be parking restrictions on Thorley Lane itself but there is another free car park in the village behind the library which sometimes has spaces.

NEW LARKHILL BRIDGE HOLIDAY 2018

DUE TO THE POPULARITY OF THE FRIENDLY HOTEL TORRETTA IN MONTECATINI, TUSCANY

WE ARE MAKING A RETURN VISIT IN JUNE 2018. BRIDGE OVERSEAS ARE ARRANGING A SPECIAL 7 DAY OPTION FOR LARKHILL MEMBERS.

10 NIGHT HOLIDAY £899 PER PERSON FROM SATURDAY 9TH JUNE.  7 NIGHT HOLIDAY £659 PER PERSON FROM 12TH JUNE TWINS/DOUBLES INCLUDING PRIVATE TRANSFERS.

LARKHILL BRIDGE CLUB
LARKHILL BRIDGE CLUB

Started in May 2010 our intention is to encourage novice players and lapsed players to join more seasoned players in taking part in friendly, duplicate bridge. 

During the coming year the committee has already planned to feature several competitions and keep you informed of developments through our website, schedule of events and occasional newsletters. We also offer bridge holidays for our members and friends.

A small number of memberships will become available from 1st November 2017 for play on Thursdays and we offer play at our Friday Club sessions to non members. Thursday play is a members only bridge club. If you do not bring a partner, we will do our best to assist but please arrive 15 minutes before commencement of play. Visitors may attend our Friday sessions as posted on the website.

We play every Thursday afternoon asking members to arrive by 12.45 to be seated for 12.50pm to ensure a prompt start. Please see the 'Information' section for further details.

The Larkhill Centre is a modern venue, all on one floor and adjacent to the Thorley Lane free car park (3 hour time limit) and also has its own small car park.
