Extra Bridge Session

Thank you to all members for voting

on the proposed extra bridge session.

Welcome to Barnsley Bridge Club
Come and Join Us

♣   ♠   Welcome to Barnsley Bridge Club  ♣   ♠ 


The Club meets regularly at Shaw Lane Sports Club, home of Barnsley Cricket Club and Rugby Club.

Bridge sessions are held on the following days at the following times :

        Mondays 1.00 pm to 4.00 pm

        Wednesdays 7.00 pm to 10.00 pm    

        Fridays 1.00pm to 4.00 pm - from 1 October to 31 March only.

New members are always welcome, and we pride ourselves on being 'beginner friendly'.

Anyone who joins Barnsley Bridge Club automatically becomes a member of Shaw Lane Sports Club.

We aim to play 21 - 27 boards on Monday afternoons and Friday afternoons, starting at 1.00pm prompt and aiming to finish around 4.15pm.

Single players are always welcolme on Mondays and Fridays and all members are expected to be respectful of less experienced players so that the session can be enjoyed by all.

We aim to play 24 - 28 boards on a Wednesday evening, starting at 7.00pm prompt and aiming to finish around 10.00pm. You must however arrive with a playing partner to take part in the Wednesday evening sessions. 

All players are asked to be seated and ready to play 10 minutes prior to the start of each session to assist the scorer.

Please note that Barnsley Bridge Club operates a  'Members Only' policy for Simultaneous Pairs events.


Following the Committee Meeting on Wednesday 20th November 2019

please be advised that drawing cards to decide seating positions will no longer be done.

Members will now be able to sit wherever they wish on a first come first served basis.

Provision will still of course still be made to accommodate our less mobile members with

North / South seating positions as has always been the case.

Yorkshire League Results

Congratulations to Barnsley A and Barnsley B who both gained creditable 10 - 10 draws in their respective away matches yesterday.

Both games were topsy turvy affairs with the lead changing hands on several occasions before honours eventually ended even.

Christmas Party Night - Wednesday 11th December

We are pleased to announce that 48 members will be attending this year's Christmas celebration.

The  meal will be served at 6.00pm so please try to arrive by no later than 5.50pm

In view of the numbers attending, and to save time later, playing positions will be drawn and allocated

prior to the evening so that we will hopefully be able to commence play as soon as the meal is over.

Subject to the time available we will try and play 24 boards - 12 x 2 board rounds although

 it may benecessary to reduce the number of rounds played if we are running short of time.

Remember that prizes will be awarded to the the first two pairs in each direction plus to the pair nearest

to 50% in each direction - so 12 bottles in total will be up for grabs.

All members who are attending without a regular partner will be paired up prior to the evening.
