Bridge is the name of the game
There are thousands today, who go out to play,
This game of cards, that’s a bit like charades.
Pull out all the stops, to get all the tops;
When BRIDGE is the name of the game
Each hand is a test, to bring out the best,
You find there is a need, to get the right lead.
Even when you begin, you are all out to win,
You look at your opponents’ faces, and trump all their aces
Make that devastating move, and show you can prove,
That cards can be fun, when all said and done
BRIDGE is the name of the game.
You carry on playing, you carry on praying
For a good hand, and you play extra hard
To win the tricks on the table, and when you are able
You win, when BRIDGE is the name of the game.
Dorothy Williams – March 1998
We are a friendly club and we ask that all members be polite to everyone at the table - especially their partner.
We use a dealing machine and bridgemates.
Please be seated five minutes before play so we can organise the evening.
