Bridge and Older People

Recent research has found that playing bridge has a statistically significant positive effect on wellbeing. Researchers at Stirling University, in conjunction with the English Bridge Education and Development, undertook a survey of over 7000 people, most of whom were bridge players. A majority of respondents indicated that playing bridge brought benefits to them personally in the form of the game having a competitive element, facilitating socialising with friends and most commonly being mentally stimulating and deriving enjoyment from the activity. This contributed to a greater sense of wellbeing than average. (taken from EBU website). Playing in our lovely Georgian Building is an added bonus for us.

Monday Afternoon Bridge

A relaxed duplicate practice session is held on Monday afternoon. More time is given to play each hand than during a normal club session. This session is open to non-members, no partner needed 13:45 to 16:45.

Bridge at Bognor

During the week there is a session to suit everybody with a practice bridge session on Monday afternoon, gentle bridge on Thursday evening and regular club sessions on Monday evening, Tuesday and Friday afternoons, and alternate Saturday evenings.  Don't be left out, if you are without a partner remember that there is a standby on Monday  evening, or you can arrange a partner using the  “find a partner” facility,  see below.

New to Bridge - Would like to learn?

Would you like to know more? See what the English Bridge Union and Andrew Robson, a highly regarded bridge player and teacher have to say about this intriguing game.

It is easy to learn, but rather more difficult to master, start by joining one of our beginners class here at the Bognor Club.  Once you have mastered the basics you can put you knowledge into practice at the Club’s Monday afternoon beginners duplicate session. These sessions are open to non-members and might be of interest to those who have played a little bridge and would like to try duplicate. Contact Jennie Wright for more information. 01243 583856

When your game is up to speed the club’s Thursday evening gentle bridge session prepares you for the regular club sessions held through out the week. For more information and how to apply for club membership contact Allan Luckin, 01903 714778, a_luckin@sky.com

 

HEATING

There is always heat available in the Bridge Room. If players are cold the Director can increase the room target temperature by pressing the button with the up arrow on the front of the control and the heating will come on. Half a degree is usually enough. The lower button will reduce the room temperature. Please use this instead of turning the radiator valves off.

Please do not open the control and alter the internal settings.

Saturday Night Bridge

Please help the TDs on Saturday nights by indicating you intend to play by signing up on the list in the club for that night.  If you are unable to sign up in person would you please let Jennie Wright or Eileen Hand know you intend to play.

Thank you
