Minehead Bridge Club
Minehead Bridge Club

Welcome to Minehead Bridge Club. We are a small friendly club and we play duplicate bridge on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the  Minehead Methodist Church Hall (please click on the 'Information" tab in the left hand column for further details). We use Bridge Mates for computerised scoring on both evenings and on Tuesday evenings Master Points are awarded but on Thursdays, when it is a little more relaxed with a mix of beginners and more experienced players, a prize can be won by the winning pair! There is always a spare partner for each evening except for competition nights.Visitors are very welcome to either or both evenings.

Pairs Tournament


Have you considered entering the Pairs' League this season? It's an event which caters for all standards of player because it is played in divisions of 6 or 8 pairs of similar standing. Each pair plays twelve board matches against the other pairs in the division over five evenings during the Spring. We have had three divisions each season to date but I would very much like to interest players who have not taken part before and to increase the number of divisions. If there is a fourth division this will be 'really easy' and help will be available so it's perfect for those newer players. There is promotion and relegation between divisions after each season and with quite small divisions there is always something to play for.

The dates for 2017 are March 31, April 5,13, 28 and May 2 and all matches take place at either Woolavington or Cossington Village halls. You do need to be able to play with the same partner on all five dates although a substitute of the same standard is allowed if really necessary.

As for scoring, it's a 'play against the experts' competition in that your results are compared against those from the world championships for example and not against the other players in the room, the intention being to raise the standard of bridge being played in clubs. We can’t actually play against the experts but we can compare our bidding and play with theirs to see how we compare.

Entry costs £25 per pair for the whole event and you can enter via the 
SCBA website. You can see last season's final tables here. This event attracts master points on the county scale. 

Please contact me for any further information. Closing date for entries is March 17th.

All the best for 2017 - I hope to see you on March 31st for the first night of PL2017.
