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.

Welcome to Olicana Bridge Club
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 including Stepping Stones on first and third Friday evenings - 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.

Michael Byrne Seminar

Our next seminar from the well respected Michael Byrne is on Friday 30th June from 10am to 12.15pm. The topic is "making defence easier for your partner" which will be of interest to many. As previously, there will be a presentation on the topic for about 45 minutes followed by a refreshment break and play of selected hands illustrating the theme. Cost £7 for members. Please sign up in advance to assist event planning. There will be a maximum of 40.

Here at Olicana we are keen to encourage as many as possible to be able to enjoy the marvellous game of bridge. We intend to start new courses in September 2017 including complete beginners, Year 2, Year 3 and improvers. Our courses have proved very popular so if would like to register your interest or find out more information then please click here to contact us via the website giving full details of the type of class you are interested in.

Play it again

Bridgewebs has an enhanced play it again feature. If you click on your scorecard from any event you have played in and then click on the play it again tab (then bridge solver on line) you can run through card by card how you might have played the hand and/or how you might have  defended it. Do try it out. You can also switch between a desktop layout and mobile/tablet layout (see tab on the left of the homepage) depending upon which device you are using.
