Master Points

Master points are awarded on Monday and Wednesday mornings, and Monday evenings.


Tournament Directors and Scorers

The club has a need for more tournament directors to reduce the pressure on those currently active or the provision of scorers to work alongside tournament directors if preferred.

Please get in touch with me by email, using the link below, if you are interested in either or both positions. Training for TD's requires attending an external course run by the EBU. Scorer training will be provided in-house.

Relaxed Bridge with Coaching
Wednesday Evening Bridge

This is a gentle bridge session open to all members for a relaxed evening of bridge. The session was introduced to provide a next step for those having completed the most recent training course. It is open to all members and would really benefit from the attendance of more experienced players to help the newer players into duplicate play at the club.
