Bridge with Lunch

Bridge with Lunch will be the first F2F event organised by Suffolk for sometime - and what better way to celebrate than with a free glass of champagne.

ENTER NOW!

So please put the date -  - in your diary. The event will take place at the Blackbourne community centre in Elmswell (IP30 9UH) on Wednesday 8 June @ 1pm  and offers a chance to meet up with bridge friends, some of whom you may have not seen for a couple of years.

A two course lunch followed by bridge has been deliberately kept to a minimum price.

Gentle Duplicate

Lavenham Village Hall, Friday afternoons
Next session: 27th May

We have a programme of relaxed bridge sessions as an opportunity for players who have never experienced duplicate bridge. This is promising to be popular, and we would now like to open it to all club members who would like to play face-to-face in a relaxed environment.

The sessions are at 2:00 for a 2:15 start, finishing by 5:15, and you are most welcome to come either with or without a partner. We aim to achieve 18 boards during the afternoon, with a short break for tea and cake.

Don't forget to check out the Hand of the week!
