Derek Adams

It is with great regret that we announce the passing of Derek Adams on the 24th of October in Huddersfield. Our sympathy and thoughts go to Derek’s family at this difficult time.

Halifax vs Aachen

A big thanks to everyone who supported the rematch against Aachen! 

We had 16 tables- it has brought to my attention that there has been an error with the score download which will be corrected tomorrow

Autumn Internationals- Dates for your diary

Following the success of the 'International' matches at the beginning of the move to online bridge back in May, we have organised 2 more Autumn Internationals

Sunday October 25th 6pm our time (don't forget to but your clocks back) Vs Aachen

Monday November 9th 7pm Vs Halifax, Nova Scotia

Both of these will be pairs events. There is no need to pre-register, just turn up on the night and register as you would for one of the normal club sessions. We will not be playing for NGS but pride is at stake! In the previous match vs Aachen honours were evenly split with an Aachen pair winning NS and Halifax winning EW. Halifax Nova Scotia proved to be tough opposition, winning a teams match 3-0 and taking 9 of the top 10 placings in the pairs, although Irene and Erika did reclaim some honour by coming joint first EW. Let's see if we can do better this time!

We are hoping that we get a good turnout with the view to making these a once or twice a year event going forward
