JOIN A CLUB
Now you have finished your beginners’ lessons or your bridge refresher course and you are ready to take the plunge into club bridge - but it all sounds a bit daunting and you need someone to hold your hand. Several clubs run sessions specifically designed for you. Usually they run a host system for these sessions so that if you don’t have someone to go with you will always be found a partner and get a game. You will meet other people at a similar stage and perhaps form a partnership with someone to move forward into the more competitive but nevertheless friendly atmosphere of club duplicate bridge.
The following clubs offer sessions sometimes described as “friendly” or “no fear” designed for those starting out on their bridge adventure where the emphasis is rather more on the social than the competitive element of the game:
ABBEY SMITH BC (at Little Horwood, Bucks) - see website www.bridgewebs.com/abbeysmith/ - or e-mail Abbey at firstname.lastname@example.org
ABINGDON BC - see website www.bridgewebs.com/abingdon/ - they run a friendly pairs duplicate on Wednesday mornings
AYLESBURY VALE BRIDGE CLUB - the club was originally set up specifically to provide an environment for students graduating from lessons to play duplicate bridge in a friendly atmosphere. Whilst that remains the fundamental role of the club, we also welcome new members moving to the area or returning to bridge after a time out. Please visit www.aylesburyvalebridge.com or e-mail email@example.com.
