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.

The final round of matches mostly took place on Sunday 4th March. The A team just missed out on promotion after their last match defeat to the Division 2 champions. The B team has won Division 4 (well done) and are promoted. The C team made a valiant effort but just got relegated from Division 5. The D team need to win their rearranged match at Bridlington (weather has caused two postponements). The E team has been relegated but gained some good experience. Thanks to everyone who represented our club this season.
