ONLINE BRIDGE CLUB

Due to the COVID closure of the Club, we are now running an online BBO competition each week. This is held on Monday afternoons with registrations from noon to 13:30 and play begins at 14:00. You MUST be online by 13:45. Guests who would like to join us should contact us in advance of the registration time. These sessions on Monday are only possible with support and thanks go to David Kerr and Steven Henderson who are the TDs. Please contact Cathy if you want further details. 

Starting on FRIDAY 23rd April, we are running a Match Pointed pairs tournament on Friday evenings. Open to all Club Members, registration is available from 17:00 until 18:40 and you MUST be online ready to play not later than 18:45. Please support this new venture.

Masterpoints are awarded for these events and you can see the results (including the recent BBO hands!) on the Club's website. Results are normally posted within 20 minutes of the end of the event. Thanks to Steven for doing this. We are still hoping that more members will join us for these sessions - good fun and they do generate income for the Club.

Biggar Bridge Club General Information

 

Founded in 1997, the Club has a membership of around 100 coming from Biggar and many places in surrounding areas. The Club moved to the upper floor of the Biggar Business Park in June 2012, where it enjoys modern comfortable accommodation comprising a main playing room for up to 9 tables, a small side room used for small groups, classes and committee meetings plus toilets and a well equipped kitchen. 

The Club runs regular weekly sessions in the evening (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday),  and in the afternoon on Mondays and Fridays. Classes based on the Scottish Bridge Union Curriculum are held for beginners and those who want to just brush up their Bridge each year; these run from September through to April. In addition the Club runs two league teams, "Biggar" and "Tinto" in the Lanarkshire Bridge Association; the teams are currently competing in the first and second divisions respectively. Other activities include participation in periodic national simultaneous pairs competitions and occasional workshops for more experienced members.
