WEDNESDAY NIGHT BRIDGE next evening 12/11/14

Wednesday night county pairs resumed on 8th October 2014 and continues on the second Wednesday each month.

 Wednesday 10th December is county pairs 3.

There will be 7 evenings through to May 2015 and hopefully other events will then be scheduled. After the 7 sessions the best 3 scores by a mixed pair wins the BLACK CUP, and the best 3 scores by a similar pair wins the FARR CUP. In addition the best 4 scores by a single player will lead to a prize as Winter Wednesday Champion. Players may therefore concentrate on either Cup event or attempt to win both whilst anyone who wants to play 4 or more times can be the Wednesday Champion. There will also be a National Pairs heat on 14th Jan 2015.
Anyone seeking a partner for these evenings can contact
