Lerwick Bridge Club is a friendly club which meets every Monday evening at 7 o’clock to play duplicate bridge.
We meet in the Islesburgh Community Centre on King Harald Street.
There is a car park with disabled parking and there is street parking close by. The Islesburgh Centre is equipped with a lift. There is also a café for the early arrivals.
The club is affiliated to the Scottish Bridge Union and caters for club, district, national as well as other special competitions. The season starts in September and goes through to early May. Each year there is an inter-county match with Orkney which takes place in mid May. On alternate years Shetland players travel to Orkney, this is always a wonderful occasion.
These sessions are more informal and you do not always require a partner. These meetings take place on Wednesday evenings at 7 o’clock in the Islesburgh from September and goes through to mid May when the main programme is completed then they move to a Monday .
Visitors are always welcome. If you don’t have a partner, contact a committee member and we will see if we can find someone to play. If you need a partner for club competitions please contact the secretary.
The Inter-county Trophy was won by Orkney again this year.
