The club is sending our emails to all members to keep them informed of significant changes that are occurring. If you have not received these, contact us.

We are now recruiting for our bridge lessons: Beginners, Fast Track (Fast track Bridge Flyer.pdf) and Intermediate. 

We welcome visitors to our online games - subscriptions are not required for online games. 

We welcome new members (and visitors) to face to face bridge games in our friendly club. We have a chair lift, so the club is fully accessible. Visitors pay £4 per session and are requested to report to the director on arrival. We expect players to arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of play so that the movement can be set and monies collected.

We provide the most comprehensive quality bridge teaching in the area, by providing traditional beginners and fast track courses in parallel as well as improvers courses. See our lessons page.
