LANCASHIRE ONLINE PAIRS SESSIONS

LANCASHIRE ONLINE PAIRS SESSIONS

♠   ♣ 

FROM 1st SEPTEMBER YOU HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY IN LANCASHIRE ONLINE PAIRS SESSIONS

EBU affiliated clubs in Lancashire have formed a partnership to offer their members a schedule of regular, well attended online duplicate pairs sessions on BBO, directed by professional but friendly TD’s.  Lytham Bridge Club has joined this partnership and you can start playing from Wednesday 1st September. Table money is £3 for an 18 board session, with payment direct to LCBA not to BBO, so you won't need any BBO$ on your BBO account.

LOP sessions will offer you:

- A regular schedule to choose from;

- Open sessions and sessions only for NGS 10 & below and NGS 7 & below;

- Masterpoints and NGS;

- Regular competitions with prizes for Open and NGS 7 and below.

Lytham Bridge Club will receive your table money, after costs are deducted, which will help the club financially.

If you are interested in taking advantage of this new service, you can find out all the details including how to register by clicking HERE.

We do hope you find some sessions that are convenient and enjoyable. It’s a tremendous opportunity to play online with your friends and to meet new players across Lancashire and even beyond….  AND every session you play benefits the club!

The first session on Wednesday 1 September is FREE – LCBA are picking up all the costs!!

Teaching Sessions on BBO
♠   ♣ 
Teaching Sessions on Bridge Base Online
 
Practice sessions are held on Mondays and Thursdays at 2.00 pm and hosted by Anne Burgess and Bill Bowden.
 
The sessions are held on BridgeBase Online and are relaxed and friendly and we do feel it would be a great pity if people forget all they have learnt. It's not quite the same as turning up at the club but for the moment is a pretty good substitute.
 
Please contact Anne if you would like to play at either or both of our sessions or leave a message for lizzie7777 on BBO.

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 are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Details below.
