NEW POLICY

THURSDAY PLAY - Five minutes before the start of the session (12.45) the Director will ring the bell and all participants must be seated at the table where they intend to play. At this point, a pair at a table without an opposing pair, a player without a partner or whose partner is expected to be late needs to notify the Director. Late arrivals after 12.50 will only be allowed to play at the Director's discretion. Once the movement has been entered on the computer and the play is set for the session, latecomers will not be able to play. This ruling will be strictly enforced.

AS A SERVICE TO OUR MEMBERS WE ARE COMPILING A LIST OF PROFESSIONALS AND TRADES PEOPLE. IF YOU HAVE SUGGESTIONS FOR THIS LIST PLEASE WRITE THEM ON THE LIST ON THE NOTICEBOARD. MEMBERS' RECOMMENDATIONS ONLY.

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.

♠ Heap praise in spades

♣ 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!

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 be seated by 12.45 for play to commence promptly at 12.50pm. 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 which we respectfully ask you to leave for Blue Badge holders.
