Cow and Calf In Ilkley

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 £12,500 from attendees donations have gone to the Haematology Trust Fund at the local Airedale Hospital.

Wildblood Teams of Four Trophy

Our teams of four trophy competition qualifier takes place on Tuesday 23rd October. Members only and a maximum of 15 teams. Please sign up in advance to assist event planning. The top six qualifying teams will take part in the final on Tuesday 27th November (when there will be a parallel teams event for non qualifiers). 


Congratulations to Sue Pell & Carole Kelly who finished joint third in the Swiss Pairs in the recent overseas Congress. Tim Emmott & Janet Leach (with Rodgers & Laycock) finished third in the sectionalised pivot teams. Well done.

2018 Competitions

Our annual competitions are nearing their conclusions so a quick update.

North Trophy is currently led by Brian Davison but it is very tight at the top. Don't forget that at least one scoring event must be with a different partner which covers quite a number of folks in contention.

Widdowson Trophy is currently led by Anne Lord and Rose Marston but like a number of other leading contenders they will both need a scoring event with a different partner. This year the best seven events will count as we had an event cancelled due to snow earlier in the year.

IMPS Ladder sees Anthony Taglione and Bernard Burns miles ahead of the field.  Barring some odd results it is between those two.

Skinner Trophy - played on all Wednesday evenings and this is very close. Lots of possible victors so good luck to everyone.

The latest positions can be seen by clicking on the competitions tab on the left of the home page and then selecting the appropriate competition.
