Who We Are

We are a friendly and active bridge club based in the centre of Brighouse, West Yorkshire.

We offer a range of social and competitive bridge events, five days a week, for players from beginners to experts.

Our English Bridge Union trained teachers provide beginners and improvers courses throughout the year and we have 4 teams regularly competing in the regional leagues.

Visitors and new members are always welcome, whatever their standard.

For more information about the club please access our contact page from the menu on the left using the information tab.

Train to become a Bridge Teacher

The club has a need for bridge teachers so that we can continue to run training courses to encourage new members and also for follow up training for the new graduates from this years course. 

Several new dates for 2023 have been announced for EBED’s popular Club Teaching Training Course. See our teacher training calendar for details. The course runs over 2 days giving the aspiring bridge teacher the skills to teach bridge effectively. Delegates get to practice teaching a bridge lesson, learn how to develop teaching methods and styles, and find out how to use minibridge to get beginners hooked on playing during their first sessions. We’ll also show you how to utilise the huge range of resources available, through the English Bridge Teachers Association, to help plan lessons. Subsidised places, courtesy of the EBU are available. If you are interested, please contact Mark on 01296 317218 (
