Welcome to the Matlock Area U3A (MAU3A) Bridge Group. The purpose of our group is to play competitive, social bridge in a relaxed and enjoyable environment.
We play "Basic Acol" at an intermediate level and plan to meet at Matlock Town Football Club every Wednesday morning during 2018, apart from 16 May, commencing at 9.15am, playing through to around 12.15pm. The cost is £2.00 per week (inclusive of tea or coffee and biscuits), payable on arrival.
As around fifty members attend each week, it is regretted that we cannot accept additional players. For more information about us, please click here.
Matlock Area U3A was formed in November 2007. Currently we have over 600 members, who may attend one or more of 40 "interest groups" of varying disciplines ranging from Art Appreciation to Walking. Our Bridge Group was formed in the same year and we recently celebrated our 10th Birthday!

Membership of the University of the Third Age is not related to a specific age but to a period in one's life (the third age) after the second age of full-time employment and parental responsibility. Anyone in their third age can join the U3A, including people who are working part-time. There is no lower age limit for membership.
