Welcome to Harrogate Bridge Club
Yorkshire Sunday League


If you would like to play in one of our 5 Sunday league teams please sign the notice in the bar.  Teams consist of 4 pairs and there will be 7 matches played at various venues across Yorkshire from October through to March.

New Daytime Duplicate


Thursdays commencing on 18th July

1:00pm to 4:00pm (please be seated by 12:50pm)

Due to popular demand we will be adding an additional afternoon duplicate session. If you would like to join in and don't have a partner please contact Julie Godbold 01423 879658.

Computer and Bridgemate Workshop


Computer Scoring

We are proposing to run a workshop on the computer aspects of running a bridge session.  This will be fairly hands on so numbers will be restricted.  However, if there is the demand, we will run multiple workshops. 

The likely duration will be approximately 1 hour with the date and time to be arranged later.

If you are interested, please contact Steve Hall (01423 563525) or Judy Cope (01423 564646).

We are intending to increase the number of daytime bridge sessions and therefore need additional people to help out.  Please note we do not expect the computer scorer to take on the role of TD, though we would encourage more people to take this qualification.

Illingworth Rose Bowl


Monday Evening 29th July

This is a mixed pivot teams competition.

All teams will consist of four members of HBC and contain at least one lady and one gentleman.

The precise format will be dependent upon the number of entries.

Life Saving Defibrillator

 

The bridge club has funded and installed a defibrillator outside the building, it can be found on the wall between the two windows.

The access code is on the inside of the front door.  

It will be available to the general public to use in an emergency and if the club is closed the access code will be given by the 999 operator.

Club Bridge Weekend

We will start taking personal bookings in September.  Please put a note in your diaries.

Welcome


We are a welcoming and friendly bridge club catering for players of all standards.  We run six pairs sessions per week and a supervised play afternoon for those who want to practice before they step up to duplicate.  We also have classes for beginners and intermediates, and occasional instruction on specific topics.

Visiting pairs are always made welcome.

For the more competitive players we have five teams in the Yorkshire Sunday League.   Many of our players also group together to make teams of four that play in the Harrogate and District Bridge League against more local opposition.

Harrogate Bridge Club is located in the centre of this beautiful spa town.  The club has its own private premises and is well established with over 250 members.  In addition to our playing areas, the club has a kitchen and a licensed bar.  HBC is a member of the English Bridge Union, EBU, and the Yorkshire Contract Bridge Association, YCBA.  We use the Bridgemate wireless scoring system so that results are updated as you play.  Hand copies of each session can be taken away and are also available once the results are posted on the website.
