The next Bridge session will take place on Tuesday 27th August in the main hall.
♠ Welcome to the Bethany Bridge Club website ♠
Bethany Bridge Club meets every Tuesday morning in Bethany Baptist Church Hall, Heol Llanishen Fach, Cardiff CF14 6LF.
We start promptly at 10.30am and finish at 1pm. Each session begins with a 15 minute seminar given by Gwynn Davis, an experienced teacher and tournament player. This is followed by a relaxed session of play, with advice available for those who request it.
The sessions are open to all. The cost is £3 per person. Free tea, coffee and biscuits are provided before the seminar from 10.15am. There are also cash prizes.
Aileen Ashmore is in charge of the kitchen and David Buttrick is our webmaster.

♠ The next Bethany Bridge Club session will be on Tuesday 27th August at 10.30am in the main hall.
♥ Did you know that Gwynn has written a book? (and it's not about bridge!) 'Aberystwyth Boy', is a collection of 14 short stories. Click on Aberystwyth Boy.pdf for more info. What's more, if you'd like a copy you can get it direct from Gwynn at the author's discount price (an unbelievable £5).
♣ We have decided that it is best for tea and coffee to be provided before the session from 10.15am rather than have a break half way through the play. This will allow more hands of Bridge to be played and relieve the pressure on the kitchen.
♦ If you would like to play Bridge on a Friday afternoon then North Cardiff Bridge Club meets at Bethany Church Hall every Friday from 1.15pm to 4.15pm. The cost is £2.50 per player and the sessions are run by Dorothy Evans. The North Cardiff Bridge Club website is https://www.bridgewebs.com/northcardiff/
We are in the process of building this web site so it will (like us we hope!) improve with age.
