The table above includes anybody who has played at least three times so far. The full table of last year's results can be viewed by clicking HERE.
Membership at the New Melville has passed the 500 mark, a record high in recent years and probably close to the all-time record for which we have no offical figures. Anecdotal evidence suggest that the membership was at about this level in the 1970s and 1980s.
When we moved from Grosvenor Crescent to Pinkhill in 2013 membership was down to 225.
MBA Summer Term play sessions announced
Click HERE for details of the play sessions, which run from Easter Monday to the end of June.
These sessions are aimed at those in current classes, but anyone can attend!
Are you interested in learning to play Bridge? If so, we offer a full range of classes extending over six terms (three years) which take you from absolute beginner to club player.
Our classes for the spring term have now finished but classes will re-start in the autumn. Full details will be available on this website later in the summer.
More information about our Academy can be found in the Melville Bridge Academy section of our website (see left hand menu) where you can also submit an enquiry about future classes.
On Wednesday afternoons we run a Gentle Pairs Bridge Session starting at 1.30 pm. These are aimed at players who are currently in the second year of classes and above or for those people who have completed all sixty lessons but are not yet ready to take the plunge into tournament bridge.
About 10-12 hands are played under the supervision of an experienced player who will help with the bidding and play.
You can come along without a partner and will either be matched up with another person in the same position or the experienced player. The session cost £3 per person. Non members of the club are welcome to come and give this a try!
An occasional series of articles for newer (and some experienced) players.
