New Beginners Course

We are pleased to be able to offer a new beginners course starting at the Bagworth Community Centre on Saturday September 24th 10.00-3.00pm. This will be followed by Saturday morning sessions from October 1st. Tea and coffee and all course materials are provided and the fee for Saturday mornings 10.00-12.30 is £3.00. We have spaces for 16 players and no partner is required but do encourage your friends to come along as well for what hope will be an enjoyable course. We are known for being a friendly bridge club meeting regularly on Thursday afternoons and offering online bridge on Monday evenings.

Bridge is a challenging card game, somewhat addictive and very good for keeping those brain cells working. The ability to play whist or solo is helpful but not necessary at all. Carol and Shelagh  who are teaching the course are both English Bridge Union qualified teachers and experienced players and will assure you of a warm welcome. It's best to give them a call first to discuss the course or email whistlestopbridgeinbagworth@gmail.com and with Carol on 01530231525 and Shelagh on 07530364339. Come on in and join us if you can, it's not too late to join us.

Ukraine Appeal

 

With our members approval the club has decided to kick start a donation to the Ukraine Appeal via the Disasters Emeregncy Committee with a donation of £200 from club funds. This has now been added to quite significantly through the warmth and generosity of our members. And, WOW, our brilliant members have raised £700 which will now be sent to the Disasters Emergency Fund. This is amazing from a little club with approximately 40 members. We believe it's enough to make a genuine difference.

The club will also offer free participation in our Thursday Face to Face Bridge sessions for any Ukrainian Refugees living in proximity to the Bagworth area. In addition we shall also offer free tuition to any Ukrainian refugee to get them started in playing this great game

It is reassuring to see that the English Bridge Union, The European Bridge League and the World Bridge Federation have issued statements condemning Russia's action and like most business, cultural and sporting organisations, ties have been severed with Russia but with no animosity to individual Russian Bridge Players.

Bagworth Community Centre
Bagworth Community Centre

We are a small and recently formed bridge group playing relaxed duplicate every Thursday afternoon and regularly have 6 tables.  We shall be returning to the Bagworth Community Centre for Face to Face Bridge on Thursday February 17th and will continue our online bridge facility using RealBridge on a  Monday and Wednesday evening. 

Our Mission is to share and spread the game of bridge to local people for their enjoyment, health and well being in a safe and comfortable environment.

We aim to create friendly and informal bridge play and whilst currently not affiliated to the English Bridge Union, we arrange matters and expect play to conform to their standards and procedures.

RealBridge at Bagworth

We are pleased to announce that RealBridge is now available via BBVA and your Bagworth Bridge Club on a Monday evening. This is an exciting extension to your bridge playing experience and will be used in addition to your current games on BBO. For those who are not aware of RealBridge it is more akin to playing face to face and is a great substitute for meeting at the club. If you wish to parcipate the fill in the form below and click submit and we will know of your interest

Our Real Bridge Today is now on Monday evening 7.00-9.15. Please click the link below for our next session on Monday October 3rd
