Tip of the week

Count Your Cards Face Down

When you take your hand out of the Board always check that you have 13 cards by counting them face down. If you fail to do this and find that you have more cards than you should have you may be penalised as you may now have an advantage knowing the whereabouts of a key card.

Always check that you have 13 cards and then shuffle them before returning them to the Board.

Macmillan Coffee Morning
Macmillan Coffee Morning

The New Melville hosted a Macmillan – World’s Biggest Coffee Morning event, on Wednesday October 15th 2014

Thanks to everyone who supported this in some way.

So far the event has raised a fabulous sum of over £1300 for Macmillan and still counting! 

No less than seventeen tables of Bridge were in play in the afternoon and it was good to see so many visitors some of whom were visiting the club for the first time.

For anyone who missed it, books etc. will continue to be on sale in the north match room until Thurs 23rd Oct after which the final total will be announced.

Our Main Playing Room

The New Melville Bridge Club was delighted to move into a new clubhouse last year. The building has now been completely refurbished giving the club some superb playing facilities including two dedicated match rooms, a teaching room and a large open playing area that accommodates twenty eight tables.

The club is located close to Edinburgh Zoo and has many buses stopping outside. Parking is also very easy and convenient.

Enjoy your bridge!
Alan Goodman - Chairman
