Capacity on Monday Evenings and Tuesday Afternoons

The number of players on Tuesday afternoons has been growing steadily for some time and is generally higher than the turn out on Monday evenings. We were close to having to turn people away. We have been using the Sports Lounge, accessible through the changing rooms. Players are getting used to this arrangement, and some even enjoy the peace and quiet! We had some problems with the signal to the tablets to begin with, but we seem to have solved those now. This means our capacity on Tuesday afternoons is now around fifteen tables, so you don’t have to worry about getting a space.

Mondays are also getting busier with new members, and people returning from those early summer holidays and the local and Warwickshire based leagues having finished for the summer. We have the option to put one table outside the lounge area taking our capacity to eleven full tables. This will be enough to get us through the winter season.

Lutterworth Bridge Club

Lutterworth Bridge Club, meets on Wednesday evenings (7pm), at Cotesbach Village Hall. You’ll find quality EBU affiliated bridge played in a good spirit.
