Many of the clubs in Merseyside offer beginners' and/or improvers' lessons. There are also easy duplicate sessions for improvers. As these change in availability it is not possible to keep a definitive list on this site. You can access the clubs' websites through the link top left on this site. Depending on where you live, possible clubs to try include Blundellsands BC, Deva, Liverpool BC, and Merseyside Bridge Centre.

This year's Championship Pairs will take place on 17th May 2018 at Liverpool Bridge Club, starting at 7:30 pm. There is no entry fee. Please do all you can to persuade your team members to take part. You do not have to be partnered with someone in your own team, so long as both players in a pair are players in the league.While it’s fine just to turn up on the night (before 7:15), it would help the organisation of the event if you could let us know in advance that you plan to play - thank you.

This popular event, organised by MCBA and hosted by Deva Bridge Club took place on Friday 18th May. 39 people eager to improve their game fought their way past the parking problems caused by the Christleton 5k run and were matched up with 13 friendly experts who had kindly volunteered their services. All had an excellent evening as the photo suggests. The Duplimate machine decided to produce some wild hands which were difficult to bid even for the experts and generated lots of discussion and tips to take away.. We hope to run this event next year so if you missed out this time then look out for information and apply early in 2019. We are also keen to recruit more experts (a loosely defined term but basically anyone playing in county teams or MBL division one) - if you would be interested please contact any of the MCBA committee members.
Congratualtions to Rodney Lighton and John Currie on winning the John Armstrong trophy held at the Deva. In second place were Bob Loveridge and Michael Tomlinson.
The final of the Lady Connell took place at Deva Bridge Club on Wednesday 15th May between the teams captained by Bob Pitts and Dave Shaw.
The Lady Connell is our premier county knock out event, with the winning team earning the right to represent Merseyside & Cheshire in the Pachabo Cup, the EBU event for County Champion teams.
After a well fought match, Dave Shaw's team emerged as winners. Many congratulations to both teams and especially to the winners, Dave Shaw, Richard Davies, Bernard Krasner and Stuart Scholes.
The next Executive committee meeting which was to be held on 27th April will now be held at the Deva on Friday 11th May at 7:00. The MCBA AGM will be held at Liverpool Bridge Club, rather than Merseyside Bridge Centre, on Thursday 21st June at 7:00.
The Cheshire Salver is now down to the last two teams. Ted Reveley is due to play Barb Serres in the final.
Congratulations to the team of Bob Pitts, Ted Reveley, Dave and Jean Keen for their win in the Eric Howarth Cup at the Deva.
Congratulations to the team of Avril Thompson, Gill O'Neill, Sheila Shea and Margaret Barnes on winning the Jean Keen Trophy, Ladies Teams.
