Everton Bridge Club has nearly 40 full playing members drawn from throughout the local area. We meet every Tuesday evening and normally have 6/7 tables playing duplicate bridge in a friendly, competitive environment.
We meet at 6.15pm for a 6.30 start in St. Mary’s Church Hall, Everton, and guests or visiting players are always welcome except for the 1st Tuesday in each month when we have our Ladder Pairs competition. You would then need a prearranged partner if you come on one of those evenings.
We run a host system that means we can accommodate single players looking for a game on most other occasions. We have returned to normal play after the challenges of the last two years. If you are interested in coming to meet us as a visitor, or prospective member, you can come unannounced but ideally please contact us beforehand via our Email: firstname.lastname@example.org However, you could also telephone Pat on 01425 616312 if you prefer.
As a Club, we feel it is important to help others and we actively support local and national charities. For 2022, we decided to again support ‘Honeypot’, a local Children’s Charity who provide respite and vacations for youngsters who are acting as primary carers for other family members. However, for 2023 we have pledged our support to the Oakhaven Hospice which provides care for people who are terminally ill, as well as assistance for their loved ones.
We are already planning our annual charity event in March. Then in November we will take part in a ‘Children in Need’ Simultaneous Pairs Competition when we usually manage to make a significant contribution to the national appeal.
On the social front, the advent of Spring and the lighter evenings result in the Chairman's BBQ in July, and the AGM & Christmas Party in December is usually great fun, with good company and good humour.
