Wednesday Morning Relexed Duplicate

We will be starting a new online pairs session on Wednesday mornings, commencing on April 10th. This is open to all members, but please bear in mind that it will be a relaxed duplicate, aimed at the same sort of level as Friday afternoons.

RealBridge for your social games
RealBridge for your social games

We are pleased to announce that we can now offer RealBridge sessions to our members for their own private games and these will be free for a trial period while we build up our understanding of running games on this platform.

To request a session, please email Richard or Dave at least 48 hours in advance stating when you want to play, how many tables (1 or 2) and whether you will be playing teams or Chicago-like scoring.

The other people in your session do not need to be club members and as long as they have suitable webcam and a decent internet connection, they can located anywhere in the world!
