Welcome to the web site for our club (formerly Walkerville Contract Bridge Club) , which is now based in Tea Tree Gully, Adelaide, South Australia.
We meet to play duplicate pairs three times a week:
Note: players must be SEATED by the above times to ensure inclusion in that session.
U3A Modbury is at 22 Golden Grove Road, Modbury North. Contact Elvira Stewart-Frick (phone 8263 7439, email firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are looking for a partner for the Modbury sessions.
St. Pius X Church Hall is at Avoca Street, Dernancourt. You may come without a partner to the Dernancourt sessions, but please come by 12:40 PM at the latest so that the director has time to find a partner for you.
Visitors are always welcome. Table fees are $4 for members, and $6 for non-members, which includes refreshments. Please be on time. Latecomers may not get a game.
There are two bridge classes at U3A Modbury, both held on Tuesday mornings during school terms. 2019 classes begin on Tuesday 29th January.
The beginner's class is in Room 3, starting at 9:00 am. If you have any friends who are interested in learning bridge, they may like to attend. Complete beginners are welcome and may come without partners. Contact Sally Rice (8289 0238, 0429 953 631, email@example.com) for more details.
There is also a session for more competent players in Room 7, starting at 8.40 am. A tutorial precedes a duplicate pairs session, finishing by 12.20 pm. Attend if you want to progress your bridge. Contact Milton Hart on 0416 084 191 for more information.
Attendees need to belong to U3A eventually ($45 for the year for as many classes as you want to attend), but there are no weekly charges. You may attend for a couple of weeks before joining U3A to see if you like the classes.
The 2019 Club Championship will be held over the 4 Wednesday nights in June. Details regarding the competition, the conditions of entry and an entry form can be viewed and downloaded by clicking on 2019 Club Championship Application.doc.
Full hand records and analysis for each session is now incorporated in the Results module on our website - this new information can be quite interesting.
Our new Constitution has been formally accepted and filed with the Department of Business and Consumer Services - it can be viewed under the 'Information' menu on the left of this Home Page or by clicking TTGBC Constitution.pdf.
