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.
