Origins and Policy ..... !
Origins and Policy ..... !

The North Cotswolds Bridge Club started in 1985, primarilly to provide local learning and practice sessions - but always in a friendly, relaxed and sociable environment. The host / teacher / proprietor (Alan Lamb) still feels relatively young and active, despite those dates! The Club has been 'full-time' since 1990, with 1, 2 or 3 sessions per day (Tuesdays-Fridays, except for holidays), most with an 'open' policy (no need to book in advance). 'Mixed ability' is a key description, and improvers are encouraged to any session that they can 'keep up' with, and feel comfortable at. More experienced players are welcome, provided that they themselves welcome newcomers !
Please note (May 2013) : after prolonged difficulties with the new EBU universal membership scheme, this Club has now disaffiliated. This does not affect the duplicate games at all, just no master points at them !
