Welcome to Lytham Bridge Club

Come and play bridge in a comfortable, friendly environment.


Table Money

£2.00 members

£3.50 non-members


Bridge Books

There are a number of bridge books in the committee room which have been donated to the club. If any member would like to have any of the books, please feel free to take them away. A small donation to the charity box would be appreciated.


Fold-up Chairs

There are also some unwanted fold-up chairs which are no longer needed by the club. Please see a committee member if you would like to take some of them away.


House Manager Position

A new position of House Manager is required at the bridge club, to assist the committee in looking after the clubhouse building, especially the exterior. Typical duties would include regular checks of the clubhouse exterior and keeping it clean and tidy, as well as some simple interior tasks. The House Manager tasks should not take up too much time, and the committee would provide plenty of assistance if required. The House Manager would be entitled to attend committee meetings but would not be under any obligation to do so.

If you would like to volunteer for the position, or find out more about it, please reply to this email or contact any committee member.

Hand of the Week

West 1  and North would like to pre-empt with 3♠ but such a bid should not have good support for   so just 1♠  for the moment. East bids 1N. South should bid just 2♣ . Bidding a suit opposite partner’s overcall shows a suit that may be better than partner’s suit.
West has a good 16, probably worth 18 with that fine   suit. The Q♠  has improved in value with East’s 1N.
Expect some help in   from East and boldly bid 3N.
3N makes even on the 7  lead. West wins the 3rd   and cashes A  K  and sees the J  fall so that 10 is an entry to East. Now play Q♠  and rejoice in the fact that North cannot lead ♣  to ruin the A♣  entry.
