Saturday Night Tournament

Help us Grow this Event!

We would like to encourage all members as well as visitors to come along to help revive our Saturday tournament. There are not many local bridge options on a Saturday night so let's keep ours alive. This tournament has now reverted back to an ordinary club night since Sunday is now "No Fears" day. Please come along for a game and help us build this tournament up into a regular successful event.

Monday Teams Tournament

On Monday 20/2/17 the club ran the second of our teams of 4 events.

The winners of this continuing successful event were H Kane, I McIntyre, P Miaolani and J McMenemy

This event, as you will now be aware, will be replicated on a monthly basis which will be the third Monday of each month

The next tournament will therefore be Monday 20/3/17

Also a reminder that the St. Andrew Cup will be held on Monday 6/3/17 which is a teams of 4 event

All those who enjoy teams events are welcome regardless of their membership status

♣  The teacher, Peter Clarke, will follow the lesson plans of the S.B.U. Focus will be on enjoying the game and reaching the standard to enter competitive play ASAP. No three year training programme here!

♣  The lessons will be in small groups, hosted in the club environment, suitable for the occasion. Expect some interactive powerpoint lessons and lots of playing practice and homework!

♣ The atmosphere will be friendly and sociable. Learning is easier when we're having fun.

You can join this class as an individual. There is no need to have a partner. Classes are also for meeting people to play with.

Follow on Lessons 2016/17

  Following the success of last year's beginners class it has been decided that the teacher, Raymond McShane will continue with last year's class this year.

  They will enter their second year of lessons and already will be playing in the fifth division of the West District come September

  Anyone can join this class at any time and learn at whatever level they have attained to date.

  The class has proved successful because the group want to learn and have many self help groups among their midst.

The above tournament is a new initiative by the club. It is intended to run a tournament at 1.00 each Sunday starting on The 5th of February

The idea is to have an event where less experienced players can play in a super environment and without inhibitions.

It is hoped that more experienced players will support the tournament by their attendance and we are sure it will be an enjoyable experience for them too

Individuals can attend as a standby will always be present, a game is therefore guaranteed

The above tournament will be held in the club on Monday 6/3/17.

Any team of four can enter this event including friends who are not members.
