New Players

If you have recently learned how to play bridge or already play socially, you might want to try Duplicate Bridge, the form of the game to be found in most bridge clubs and in competitions. Most clubs welcome new players and many offer a "host" arrangement which means that you can turn up for a game even if you don't have a partner. For details of Worcestershire clubs, refer to the Clubs section.

If you are not quite ready to join a club, there are two other ways to have a go at Duplicate Bridge in Worcestershire. There are two "Gentle Duplicate" clubs meeting weekly and offering an introduction to duplicate for new players in a friendly atmosphere and at an easy pace of play; additionally, a number of clubs in the county are offering "Try Duplicate" sessions, where a separate section for less experienced players runs alongside the club's regular evening game.

Gentle Bridge Clubs

Bournheath meet at Bournheath Village Hall, Claypit Lane, Bournheath on Tuesday afternoons. Please arrive at 1:15 for a 1:30 start. The cost is £3.50. Individual players are welcome and are guaranteed a partner. For details please contact: Anne Glendenning 01527 882169 ( or Eugene Elijah 01527 871255 (

There is also a club which meets on Thursday afternoons at Chaddesley Corbett Village Hall, which is on the A448 Kidderminster to Bromsgrove road, directly opposite the entrance to Brockencote Hall and has the postcode DY10 4QA. Again, 1:15pm for a prompt start at 1:30pm, and individual players are welcome as a partner will be provided.
