Welcome to the web pages for the Bridge Section at Bramhall Golf Club.

Many golfers are also keen bridge players, but you don't need to play golf to enjoy a relaxed and friendly game of bridge at the club, as as non-golfing members have full access to the bridge section and club facilities.

Various duplicate bridge sessions are held throughout the week as detailed on the Information page.

From early autumn to spring, weekly beginners' tuition is available for those wishing to take up or return to bridge, and improvers' tuition for those keen to take their game to a higher level.

Recent results can be viewed by clicking on the Results dates on the right of the page or through the Results item in the Menu on the left. Please feel free to explore the Menu items.
