Please note that there will be no Bridge session on the forthcoming Bank Holiday:
Monday 26th August
♣ ♦ ♥ ♠ Welcome to Barnsley Bridge Club ♣ ♦ ♥ ♠
The Club meets every Monday and every Wednesday at Shaw Lane Sports Club, home of Barnsley Cricket Club and Rugby Club.
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 a Monday afternoon, starting at 1.00pm prompt and aiming to finish around 4.15pm. Single players are always welcolme on Mondays 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.
It was with great sadness that we heard today of the death of Christine
who passed away last weekend after a long illness which she had borne with great dignity and courage.
Christine was a very popular member of our bridge club and also a member at Stocksbridge
but more than that she was a lovely lady who will be greatly missed by all her bridge friends.
Her funeral service will take place at 10.50 am on Wednesday 21st August at Ardsley Crematorium.
