Phase Two Training - Lebensohl - Wed 29th October

The last talk in what has been a very successful series of 'Phase Two' training sessions was given by Christine Ray as a  follow-up to her Weak Twos talk earlier in the year. We learned about all things Lebensohl. It was an excellent talk and suddenly Lebensohl doesn't seem that complicated after all. Thank you Christine.

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 18th November. You can come with or without a partner.

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

Sim Pairs 2014

Thur 13th Nov Duplicate Hosted & Children in Need Sim Pairs £2 extra.   Thur 4th Dec Prize Handicap & Chidwick Cup Sim Pairs £2 extra.

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.
