Next members' competition:
Tuesday 20 August
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.
This event for members only will take place on Tuesday 20 August, beginning at 7pm.
Players are asked to be seated by 6.45 pm to help the director and scorer, should any last minute re-arrangements be needed.
An entry list is posted on the club noticeboard, but entries will be accepted up to 6.45 pm on the day.
Though not a compulsory requirement, pairs are asked to put their names on this list to help with advance planning.
The usual playing history eligibility qualification obtains and should further details be required, please see the competitions' organiser.
