This morning's session was the last before Phil's new classes start in the kitchen next week. It is good to see that this year's 'kitchen graduates' are playing regularly on Wednesday mornings. 

Ten and a half tables competed for honours with Marion Cordell and Jean Newell coming top N/S with 66.3% and Naomi Kelsall and Jeremy Miles  top N/E with 62.6%.

Introduction
Introduction

 

Ripley Bridge Club is affiliated to the English Bridge Union and the Derbyshire Contract Bridge Association. We hold 3 sessions of bridge each week, on Monday and Thursday Evenings, and Wednesday mornings.

On Monday evenings we meet at St. Joseph's Church Hall,  94, Butterley Hill,  Ripley DE5 3LW and on the Thursday evening we meet at Riddings Park Community Centre, West Street, Riddings DE55 4EW.

Play starts at 7pm.  Please try and be seated for 6:50 pm.

We suggest less experienced players start with the Thursday evening at Riddings, but are welcome on either evening.

On Wednesday mornings, we meet at Pentrich Village Hall, Main Road, Pentrich DE5 3RE  from 9:45 to 12:30.  This is a Beginner/Improver session of supervised practice, instruction and play held under the direction of Phil Upton, MEBUTA. The session comprises a short introduction to a topic of interest, followed by duplicate on a 'Draw for Partner' basis so singles are welcome.
