Tuesday mornings, Tuesday and Wednesday nights

The new teaching course starts on 27th September so the last Tuesday morning supervised session will be on 20th September. Wednesday evenings are now supervised Improvers Duplicate sessions with a 7.30pm start and finishing about 9.45pm.

From October, the Wednesday evening sessions will qualify for EBU magazine points (but not for either master points or the National Grading Scheme) All members are welcome to join the sessions to play and encourage the students in the development of their bridge.

As a consequence of these changes, the Monday afternoon sessions will be run by Sale Bridge Club from October and will no longer attract EBU magazine points.

The 40s Bridge Club joins up with Sale Bridge Club

The 40s Bridge Club has combined with Sale Bridge Club to play duplicate bridge from 1.00pm on Wednesday afternoons at Cadman House. Everyone is welcome to come for an enjoyable afternoon of bridge.
