The committee request that you please be seated 10 minutes prior to the beginning of play, 12.50pm on Monday and Thursday afternoons, 1.05pm on Friday afternoon and 6.50pm on Monday and Tuesday evenings, so that the director can set up the movement on the scoring programme and Bridgemates for a prompt start.

Welcome to Blackburn & Ribble Valley Bridge Club


Due to the continuing situation with Coronavirus, the club will remain closed for the foreseeable future.

In the meantime, we wish everyone good health and hope that we can meet up again as soon as possible.

We have comfortable ground floor premises with parking and with disabled access/facilities.

We offer classes with experienced teachers for beginners and improvers.
