Alrewas Bridge Club started in March 2009. Around 16 folk attended our first meeting. We met at the George & Dragon pub and also at the Methodist Church Hall. In March 2013 a few of our more advanced members joined the British Legion Club and met on Monday afternoons. Later, the other members also joined the British Legion Club and we have continued to prosper with a Bridge Club membership of around 56 and still growing. At our 2014 AGM we changed our name to Alrewas (RBL) Bridge club. New members are most welcome.
We now regularly meet 4 afternoons each week from 2 pm (Tuesdays from 1.30 pm). Mondays are still reserved for advanced players playing with regular partners. Tuesdays, are for beginners and Wednesdays and Fridays are for advanced and intermediate players.
The British Legion Club is ideal with excellent facilities such as free parking, disabled access, bar and catering. The room that we use is warm and comfortable with adequate space for up to 6 tables - if required we can use extra tables in the adjoining lounge area. Not only can we enjoy playing Bridge but we have access to the many other RBL facilites such as Snooker, Crown Green Bowling, Coach Trip Outings, and Entertainment to suit a variety of tastes. Bridge Club members are encouraged to support the RBL club as much as possible.
We have social events each year and are indeed very fortunate in having so much talent with several musicians, vocalists and stand-up comedians ready and willing to entertain us. Members of the bridge club are encouraged to support the RBL Club social events and are welcome to invite guests.
Tuesday afternoons are reserved for training beginners. We have proud record of having assisted over a hundred complete beginners to an acceptable standard of play.
