Winter Bridge League

Trumps versus Nerja Bridge Club

The first match of the Winter Sunshine Bridge League got underway on Saturday 8th October.

As the Home team, we were delighted to use Nerja Bridge Club premises for this journey into the unknown.  It was exciting and daunting at the same time, but once the cards were taken from the first board everyone settled into a usual afternoon of bridge.  Silence descended for the first 15 boards. 

We had a short break for a cup of tea (or something a little stronger) and cake.  Then back to the task in hand for the final 15 boards.  After a hard fought afternoon (much sighing), Nerja Bridge Club beat us by 53-27.

Thanks to Nerja Bridge Club for kick-starting this friendly competition and the loan of their premises.

My thanks to the team:- Johan, Mari-Carmen, Wolf, Gertrude, Liz, Rachel, Penni and Marion (who was also the Director, thankfully not required).

La Puente versus Trumps

Held on Saturday 29th October, this was the second challenging game of the league.  The challenge was finding the venue, luckily for us our hosts were well versed in lost bridge players and sent extremely clear instructions.  A large team was taking part and we all managed to arrive on time.

The first 20 boards flew by and it was a pleasant surprise to realise it was tea and cake time.  We settled down to the final 10 boards and a close match was finally won by La Puente 97-83.

A great afternoon of laughter and competition.  Many thanks to everyone at La Puente for being such wonderful hosts.

Thanks to our team:- Wolf, Jette, Gertrude, John, Mark, Penni, Lorna, Rachel, Ann, Alan, Sue and Cris.

Our next match is in January, and will be on a Saturday afternoon.

Team Captain

Duplicate Bridge at Trumps

 

Welcome to TRUMPS Nerja bridge website.  Players at the club make that special effort to be courteous and to adhere to recognised etiquette ensuring that duplicate bridge is played in an atmosphere which  is enjoyable for one and all.  There is no membership fee and the club is non profit making and, as funds permit, organises social events, lunches etc for members.The winners of each session, regardless of the number of tables, are given a  'free game'. We hold a number of events including the David Leake Memorial Cup Tournament which is intended as an annual event.  In addition we occasionally have tapas before bridge play and in June last year we had a Summer event with lunch before Bridge.  At this time of year we typically have between 7 and 14  tables of Duplicate Bridge.


TRUMPS plays bridge in the pleasant setting of the Hotel Al Andalus, Nerja on the sunny Costa del Sol in Spain. There is ample free car parking. Air-conditioning is available to ensure a very comfortable atmosphere in which to play bridge. The room in which we play bridge overlooks the hotel swimming pool and has panoramic views to the Mediterranean sea.


We play duplicate bridge on Mondays and Thursdays starting at 3.00.  You are welcome to join us; if you need a partner contact Andrew (958 827 918) or Marion (952 522 362) who will do their best to find you one.  

 

Visitors are always welcome so if you are in Nerja on holiday please feel free to come and join us.
