 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.

  Click on 'Top Tips' on the left of the screen to see Gwynn's list of 'Essential Bridge Conventions'. This week he looks at Doubles and explains when and how to employ them - and there is a quiz! To see his guide you should click on 'Top Tips' on the left of the screen and scroll down the Essential Bridge Conventions until you see 'Doubles' and then click on the link (blue text). Alternatively you can scroll down further to 'Top Tips Documents' and click on the blue link there

♠  The next Bethany Bridge Club session will be on Tuesday 19th November 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 www.northcardiff.org 

The Web Site

We are in the process of building this web site so it will (like us we hope!) improve with age.

Don't miss Gwynn's Top Tips guide to Doubles!

  The 'Hand of the Week' is Board 19 from the session on the 5th November. North/South have a great fit and could get a grand slam but none of us got beyond a game bid. Gwynn explains how the bidding should have gone  

'Top Tips'Click on 'Top Tips' on the left of the screen to see Gwynn's list of 'Essential Bridge Conventions'. This week he looks at Take Out and Competitive Doubles and there is a quiz for you and your favourite partner! To see his guide you should click on 'Top Tips' on the left of the screen and scroll down the Essential Bridge Conventions until you see 'Doubles' and then click on the link (blue text). Alternatively you can scroll down further to 'Top Tips Documents' and click on the blue link there.  

 Do you have any bridge queries on which you would like some advice? If so take advantage of our  'Agony Corner' and e-mail your problem to Gwynn to receive his words of wisdom. ♣

Many apologies for the delay in getting the results posted for the session on the 12th November - Gwynn has lost his internet connection. Normal service will be resumed as soon as the techies sort it out.

Just click on the appropriate date below to show the results for that day. 

There is also a Player of the Month table - click on Competitions on the left to see how you are doing - Jeanette and Marie are just behind John Marshall who topped the  October table. Only people who have played at least twice are included in the final table.

For people who like to take the long view there is now a Player of the Year table currently headed by John, just ahead of Jeanette. Only people who have played at least 10 times are included in the table. If you click on Competitions on the left you can choose to view either the current month or year table.
