Duplicate Taster Sessions

On Monday afternoons from 2pm to 4.30pm with a host. Designed to help social bridge players and not for absolute beginners (who we suggest join one of our teaching classes). Cost £3.50 per person and lots of assistance given if needed.

Teams Workshop

 Each Thursday morning a group meets and looks at ways of improving bidding, play and defence from selected hands. This group is suitable for all members who wish to improve but particularly those keen on playing in the Yorkshire teams league. Since this Workshop began just over £10,000 from attendees donations have gone to the Haematology Trust Fund at the local Airedale Hospital.

Committee Minutes

The latest committee minutes and updated telephone list are now in the Members Only section along with archived minutes too.

Friendly Bridge Club in Ilkley
Friendly Bridge Club in Ilkley

Welcome to OLICANA Bridge Club in the delightful West Yorkshire town of Ilkley. We are located at 12 Wells Promenade in the town centre. We are just a few minutes walk from Ilkley Train Station - regular services from Leeds and Bradford and a few minutes walk from the bus station (which is adjacent to the Train Station).

We have duplicate sessions on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Please try to be seated no later than 7.05pm so that we can make a prompt start. We offer a warm welcome to any visiting pairs. There are teams of four evenings, occasional weekend events and beginners/improvers sessions too - please see the weekly calendar for precise details of all of our events. We have a host system on Monday afternoon, Wednesday evening and our weekend bridge events which allows players without a regular partner to come along and to be guaranteed a game. We have pivot teams of four events on many second Friday evenings too. All of our sessions are scored using bridgemates.
