Convention Cards

A reminder from Ann McMahon, the Chief Director: If you are playing anything but very basic ACOL you and your partner both require the same printed convention card available for perusal by your opponents. The easiest way to achieve this is to download a card from the EBU by clicking  HERE  You can then modify it to your own system. If you are unable to download one for any reason there are also now some blank convention cards in the cupboard in the playing room.

Training Sessions on last Friday in the month.

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 20th January. 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.

Please note There will no longer be any daytime parking for the Bridge Club. No Fear will continue to run for the time being but those taking part will need to find alternative parking

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.
