We run duplicate bridge sessions most afternoons and evenings. See "Where and when" under the "Information" tab on     the left. Our club is a private members' club providing extensive facilities for its members and visitors. These include a well-stocked bar and soft-drink refreshments. Our facilities also include disabled access via a ramp at the rear of the club and inside, a lift connecting the downstairs playing and social areas of the club to the upstairs playing area and kitchen facilities. Toilets (including toilets for the disabled) are situated on both floors of our premises.
We look forward to welcoming you to our club to join in and play our favourite card game. We also welcome enquiries from players looking for a 'half-way house' so that teams do not have to travel so far when needing to play that all important NICKO or other competition match.

Online Duplicate Bridge Available to Club Members.

The following bridge clubs have duplicate bridge sessions and do not require the payment of a membership fee to join in the sessions:

Retford Bridge Club run a club duplicate on Thursday evenings starting at 7.15 on Realbridge. Realbridge requires the use of a webcam and a microphone, as you can see and speak to your partner and opponents at the table. The use of tablets and ipads that are less than five years old are suitable to use, although it is generally found easier to use a laptop or a desktop computer. A free session is available for a trial, and after that, a fee of £1.50 per session is payable. There is a session for improvers on Wednesday afternoons, and consideration is being given to a further session on Tuesday evenings.

Malton Bridge Club have a Realbridge session on Wednesday evenings commencing at 7.00 pm at a cost of only £1 per session.

Harrogate Bridge Club has just introduced a Realbridge session on Tuesday afternoons and Friday evenings, and runs BBO sessions on Monday and Wednesday mornings and Thursday evenings, costing £1.50 per session.

Halifax Bridge Club also runs a number of sessions, including at weekends, at a new rate of £2 per session. Payments will need to be made by bank transfer unless you can arrange to send a cheque by post, but this is not really advisable.

If anyone wishes to know more and would like to join the sessions, please contact Julia Staniforth at
