Relaxed Hosted Duplicate

The Relaxed Hosted Duplicate gives more time than usual to play each hand than on an average Duplicate evening and is generally less strict.  It is run with the explicit intention of encouraging newer players to make that step up from Improvers, No Fear Bridge, Rubber etc. This year we have seen quite a few people take up that opportunity. We hope those who have played once or twice will continue to come and that others who have yet to try it out will give it a go.

The next Relaxed Hosted Duplicate is on Tuesday 16th December. You can come with or without a partner.

Rubber Bridge

Monday evenings  7:00 – 10:00 pm   (main room)

Bridge doesn't have to be so serious! Come with a partner and play Rubber Bridge. It's fun and you can experiment without serious consequences. What's more there are prizes! If you've only played Duplicate it's easy to pick up.
Cost: £2 per session for members. £4 for visitors.

Improver Bridge

                 Friday  evenings      7:00-10:00 p.m.     

Practise Duplicate Bridge in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Become steadily more confident playing in any company.
A playing session of about two hours is followed by an open discussion of some of the hands to in order to improve your understanding of both bidding and card play. Cost: £2 members. £4 visitors. No partner required

For further information click on title or contact John Hawkins  email:

NEW:There will also be training sessions once a month.

No Fear Duplicate Bridge

If you wish to play in the daytime there's No Fear bridge on Thursday afternoons. This is particularly suitable for beginners/improvers or if you haven't played for a while. You can turn up without a partner. £2 members. £4 visitors. 1.15 p.m. for 1.30 p.m. start.  Finish 4.00 p.m. For further details see No Fear Bridge in the Information section
