Welcome to Oakfield Bridge Club
Welcome to Oakfield Bridge Club
Oakfield Bridge Club offers a warm welcome for both new and experienced players.  We are affiliated to the English Bridge Union and within easy reach of Manchester, Rochdale, Oldham, Halifax, Huddersfield, Holmfirth and Ashton-Under-Lyne. 
 
There are duplicate pairs sessions on Tuesdays at 7pm and on Wednesdays at 1pm. On Mondays there is a 3 hour duplicate bridge session.
 
Table money is £2.50 for members and £3.50 for non-members. Club membership costs £5 per year.
 
We operate a host system at all our sessions, so you can turn up on your own and be sure of a game. People can also volunteer to be a "host" and, should you not be needed at that session, you will receive a free entry for the next time you play. Anyone, no matter what their ability, may act as a host.

 

All sessions are held at the

 

Masonic Hall,
138 High St,
Uppermill,
Saddleworth,

Do come along, whatever your level of experience and ability - you will always be made very welcome.

HOSTS

Oakfield Bridge Club prides itself on welcoming new members. Often new members do not come in "ready-made" pairs and need a partner. Existing members may also need a partner if their regular partner is unable to attend. This is why the club operates a "hosting" system. It ensures that all members who attend get a game (with the exception of the host who occasionally doesn't). However, we need more members to volunteer to be hosts so that it does not fall on a small group. As someone who acts as host from time to time it is also a good learning exercise playing with a new person. If all club members volunteered twice year all slots would be covered. Please spare the time to be a host.
