Thursday Afternoon Bridge

 Our Thursday afternoon bridge sessions have started.  We will run these for a trial period up until Christmas and hopefully continue on into 2018 if we get a reasonable turnout.

To try and get this kick-started we are making all the Thursday afternoon sessions up until Christmas completely free!!

Play will start at 1.00 pm and we will aim to finish by 4.00 at the latest. There will be no formal tea break but tea and coffee will be available for purchase during the afternoon for consumption at the bridge table.

Please Note: We will NOT be offering a standby player for this session to start with. However, if you do turn up on your own and we can't match you up, you will be given a free game voucher for use the next time you are at the club.
