Lytham Bridge Club

♠ ♥ ♦ 

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.

Ollie Burgess Seminar

♠   ♣ 

Ollie's Seminar a great success!

The Ollie Burgess seminar on Saturday 21st September proved to be a great success with over 40 members and visitors attending. Ollie spoke about protective bidding and balancing, and prepared 16 hands which were then used to demonstrate the theme.

Some comments at the end of the seminar: "very well presented", "I have learnt so much today", "when's the next Ollie seminar?"

Ollie had a very enjoyable time and will present further seminars in the future. If there are any topics which you would like to be considered for future seminars, please send an email to the club or speak to any committee member.

Special thanks to Mary Irving for providing the excellent cakes and drinks.

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.
