WELCOME TO LYTHAM BRIDGE CLUB
Lytham Bridge Club is located in the heart of Lytham St. Annes in our own purpose-built clubhouse bungalow. The club has a large comfortable playing area and all the facilities you'd expect from a well-supported club - a car park and ample street parking, easy access to the building, facilities for the disabled, and catering facilities with five star accreditation.
We are the only bridge club in the Lytham St. Annes area which is affliated to the English Bridge Union, which means our members all benefit from the support offered by the country's governing body. Our members automatically become members of the EBU so they have the opportunity to earn master points and be able to monitor their personal progress and compare it with other local and national players. They can also play in EBU-sponsored events. Lytham Bridge Club is over 60 years old so we have plenty of experience to help our members become better players.
Our regular sessions on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays are hosted sessions so you don't need a partner - if you come along on your own you will be guaranteed a game. We also have regular sessions on Mondays and Saturdays. Details below.

The club will be open as usual throughout the Easter weekend, with an additional "No Fear" session on Thursday evening:

The session will be hosted so you can come along on your own and still be guaranteed a game.

To all members (and some visitors)
Thank you all so much for your fantastic support of my efforts to raise money for Alzheimer's Research. The amount from the Charity Evening, together with donations put in the charity box during the year, has raised exactly £700. This has exceeded my expectations and I cannot thank you enough. Well done!
I had a lot of fun organising the evening and I think those attending enjoyed themselves, which is all I wanted. My grateful thanks to the many people who helped me.

NEW MONDAY EVENING SESSIONS
From Monday 1st April there will be a regular Monday evening session starting at 7:30pm. As usual, there will be complimentary wine and snacks during the first Monday of the month.
We will also be holding a brand new Summer Pairs Contest throughout the summer, where your best 8 Monday scores will count towards the competition to win some generous cash prizes. The competition will be tiered into expert and non-expert categories, so everybody will have a chance of winning. Your best 8 scores with three or more different partners will qualify for the competition. Further details available in the Club Competitions page.
♠ ♥ ♦ ♣ TEACHING ♠ ♥ ♦ ♣
We currently provide three teaching programmes for all levels from absolute beginners to intermediate players. You do not need to be a member to follow our teaching programmes - everybody is welcome no matter what their ability, including experienced players who wish to brush up on certain parts of their game.
Monday afternoon (1:30pm) - Prepared hands for novices and intermediate learners
Tuesday evening (7:30pm) - Supervised duplicate sessions for novices
Second and Fourth Wednesday afternoons (1:30pm) - Different topics every session for intermediate learners
We always welcome new returning and improving players and our experienced teachers go out of their way to teach and support, providing you with what you feel you need rather than what we think you need. At Lytham we have many experienced players who will partner you and act as mentors until you become more confident. If you would like to find out more about our teaching programmes, please send an email to email@example.com or call our teaching coordinator Bill on 01772-686335. Mondays and Tuesday teaching sessions costs £2.00 for members and £3.50 for visitors, and the Wednesday session costs £3.00 for members and £4.50 for visitors.
