Free RealBridge

We are delighted that several people are now training to become RealBridge Directors which has the potential to enable us to offer more RB events.   We are going to offer three "special" Sunday Evening RealBridge Pairs (16 boards) with the object of creating a platform for the trainees to complete their training and, for that reason, these will be free of charge.  Enter here.
The three dates are: 

  • Sunday 26th September
  • Sunday 3rd October
  • Sunday 10th October

Each evening's play will start at 18.30.  If you have any questions, please get in touch with John at johndimambro@gmail.com

The club is in a 19th century listed building and yet has all the benefits of technology with computer-dealt boards, Bridgemates on all tables, etc.  Up to thirty-seven tables in play can be accommodated over the three floors of the building.
