Learn to play bridge!

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.

Grattan Endicott Trophy (County Trials)

Congratulations to Steve Lloyd and David Smith on a fine win on 5 February. It is always nice to see new faces at County events and this particular event certainly threw up a few surprises. The full results have been uploaded.

Many thanks to Liz Stevenson (and David) for running the event so efficiently.

 

EBU Silver Plate
David Stevenson writes: "The final of the EBU Silver Plate between David Stevenson - Liz Commins  Paul Roberts - Julian Merrill Paddy Murphy (M&CBA) - Simon Edwards (N Wales), and a team from the Derby area was played over 48 boards at the East Midlands Bridge Academy, near Derby, on Tuesday 10th January 2017.
Unfortunately our team failed to recover from losing 28 imps over the first 16 boards, and finally lost - by one imp!"
Great try guys!
