Welcome to Halifax Bridge Club
Halifax Bridge Club

Welcome to the website of the club that offers duplicate bridge sessions for young and old. The club has its own private premises and is well established, providing duplicate bridge sessions. It is a member of the English Bridge Union and the majority of the club events generate EBU Masterpoints. There are also occasional sessions that tie in with simultaneous county events. In addition to a comfortable playing area, the club has its own kitchen and licensed bar and there is ample free on-street-parking after 6pm.

Halifax Bridge Club has four teams of eight players that compete during the winter months in the Yorkshire Sunday League.


Congratulations to Andrew Mitchell who has risen to the rank of King in the EBU's National Grading Scheme (NGS).

Any members wishing to track their own progress in NGS can do so by logging on to the 'My EBU' page at

Minnie Owen Cup

Minnie Owen Cup

Friday 25 October @ 7pm

This competition is designed for pairs of beginners and improvers. Thus, entry is restricted to those members with a NGS ranking of 5 or less, as of 1 September 2019. A list of players so ranked can be found on the club noticeboard, but entrants also need to have the appropriate playing frequency qualification. 

Newer players/members and/or those who are unranked should check with the event organisers regarding qualification status.

Although not a compulsory requirement, entrants should put their names on the list posted in the club to help the TDs (Paul Stanley & Stephen Cordingley) with preparations. A minimum of 8 pairs is needed for a valid competition to be held.

Hosted/Relaxed Bridge Sessions

Tuesday afternoons are hosted by the Director. Learners, newcomers and visitors are positively welcomed. A small amount of help can be given to absolute beginners or those unfamiliar with duplicate. Please be there for 12.50pm.

Wednesday evening sessions are hosted on a "Last Person Standing" basis. i.e. the last person to arrive at the club without a partner becomes the host.

Friday evening sessions are hosted by the Director, there is no visitor surcharge and help is freely available. Please be there for 6.50pm.
