Welcome to Cardiff Bridge Club
New! Assisted Play Sessions

Our first two new assisted play sessions will take place on Wednesday 8th June and Wednesday 22nd June between 10:00am and 12:30pm at Cardiff Bridge Club.

The sessions are aimed at players who are fairly new to the game or who are looking for a bit more practice before going on to play in full duplicate sessions.

You will play duplicate bridge with pre-dealt hands but this will be a very friendly learning & playing environment with the ability to ask for help from the session organiser.

There will be a £5 charge.

If you want to join us please book in advance by emailing 
"teaching@cardiffbridgeclub.org".

Monday Afternoons

We are delighted to announce that by popular demand we will once again be holding fun and sociable bridge sessions at the Club on Monday Afternoons.

This is possible because Ian Evans has kindly agreed to direct with the help of Aileen Ashmore. Both will be available to assist during the session, if required, and don't worry if you haven't got a partner as this is a hosted session and so you are always assured of a game.

Start Date: 4th April  Time: 1.30 until 4.00  Table Money: £3 for everyone (to include free coffee and tea) and you can choose to pay online at http://spadetickets.com/penylan/ or in cash on the day.

We hope that you and your friends will come and enjoy yourselves.  

New Bridge Services

Cardiff Bridge Club now offers two new services:

- The ability to book a single table on RealBridge for your private session with friends/family.

- The ability to book a Team of Four match on RealBridge.
