Face to Face Bridge

The Bridge Section are very pleased to announce that we will re-open for F2F bridge the week commencing Monday 26th July

providing there is no change to the Government Guidelines.

The Monday afternoon rubber session is to change to a duplicate session.

We look forward to meeting our members again and resuming the bridge sessions with adherence to Club COVID regulations.

This information will be sent to all members before the start date of the 26th July by our new Chairman Terry Ottway.

Thursday Evening BGBC Sessions Ended

The Committee have made the decision to end the Thursday evening BGBC duplicate session due to very low table numbers

Welcome to the webpage of the Bridge Section of the Brookdale Club, Bramhall.

Situated in the leafy suburbs of South-East Manchester, close to rural Cheshire and the Derbyshire Peaks, the Brookdale Club is a Members' Social Club founded in 1943. The club has fourteen semi-autonomous Sections covering a wide range of leisure activities of which Bridge is only one. To find out a little more  about the Brookdale Club see the "News" tab to the left of this page, or use the link under the "Useful Links" tab lower down .

Our ethos is that the Bridge Section should be relaxed and welcoming. We have over 200 members, Bridge is played four days a week and we try to cater for all abilities.

Duplicate sessions are held on a Monday and Friday afternoons and a relaxed Duplicate session is held on Wednesday evenings.

On Thursday morning a training session is held for absolute beginners and an improvers Duplicate bridge session is also held with tuition and supervised play for those who want it.

New members are always most welcome, and more information is available from our Bridge Membership Secretary, Milly Gillespie, on 0161 285 1483, or through the Contact page on this site, or the "Join Us" page on the Brookdale Club website. It is a requirement that all members of the Bridge Section should also be members of the Brookdale Club.

Visitors are also most welcome, but are restricted to four visits per year. If you find you want to play more frequently, we shall be happy to greet you as new members.

Bridge Tuition
Bridge Tuition


We hold Bridge sessions for beginners every Thursday morning between 9.45am and Noon.

It is intended that these lessons are suitable even for someone who has never held a pack of cards, and to take them to a sufficient understanding of basic bidding and card play to enable them to join an Improvers session with confidence. The programme is tailored to each individual's needs which allows the process to take as long as he or she wishes it to.

Intake to this group is on an annual basis, on the first Thursday morning in October. If you require more information, please leave a message on the "Contacts" page of this site



Our Improvers group also meet on Thursday mornings at 9.45am, and play finishes at about 12.15pm. It is intended for those who have progressed through the Beginners group, or for club members who want to improve their game, or for those who just want a nice gentle game of duplicate on a Thursday morning.

 Normally  the whole group meet together and play in one room, generaly in two sections. Experienced club members are present to offer help and guidance to those who want it, but those who don't are left in comparative peace to enjoy their game.

On the last Thursday of the month the group splits into two rooms. For those who want it, about 30 minutes of formal tuition is given, followed by supervised play. The other group play a straight game of duplicate with no help or guidance on the play.

If you want more information about the Improvers group, please contact Gordon Nightingale on 0161 456 1863
