The Committee of the Barnstaple Bridge Club has got together with Sally Anoyrkatis, local Bridge teacher and experienced player, to co-present a 12-week program of enjoyable and friendly Bridge evenings designed to attract new and improving players of all standards to the club. Details of each session will appear here along with results and info sheets etc as they become available.
All Bridge players are welcome, regardless of experience, and do not need to bring a partner as one will be provided.
The full program for the 12 weeks is yet to be fully finalised - check the calendar and see below for details as they are available. The program will depend on feedback from the early sessions as well as the numbers and experience of players that attend. Sessions will be shorter, running from 7.30pm until 10pm, and the general format will be play followed by some discussion of selected hands (with snacks!). Table money for sessions 2-12 will be £2 per person. It may be a bit chaotic to begin with but we hope you will bear with us. It will definitely be fun!
To support less experienced players there will be fewer boards than usual allowing more thinking and discussion time during play. Support during play will also be available as needed and there is therefore likely to be more noise than usual.

To our current members - the current low attendances on a Thursday evening show that the club in its present form is not sustainable and that something has to change. We ask for your support in this exciting new venture.
