Welcome to Malton Bridge Club
Happy New Year!

The club's programme continues in 2020 from Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th January.  The first two Wednesdays are the final seesions of the Championship Pairs and Positional Pairs respectively.

These are followed by two consecutive sessions of Handicap Teams, on 22nd and 29th January.  All members, especially those who have joined recently, are encouraged to take part in this form of competition, a change from the usual weekly duplicate pairs.  To indicate availablitiy, sign up at the club or contact the Secretary.

Christmas Session

Wednesday 18th December is the club's Christmas Session - while the evening counts as part of the Positional Pairs, it also includes a break for a small celebration.  Drinks are provided by the club but members attending are asked to bring a small contribution of 'nibbles', either sweet or savoury.

We hope to see many of you there. 

Holiday Period Closures

Please note that there will be no Thursday afternoon sessions on December 12th, 19th and 26th or on January 2nd.  The sessions resume on January 9th.

There will not be a Wednesday evening session on December 25th or January 1st.

Welcome

Malton Bridge Club is a small, friendly club with, currently, fewer than 50 members.  The membership spans the full range of experience and expertise, all enjoying and benefitting from playing together in a congenial atmosphere.

There are two distinct parts to the club’s playing season.  From October to early May on Wednesday evenings there is a programme of four different seven-session pairs competitions and one two-session teams-of-four competition, though non-qualifying or visiting pairs are also very welcome to attend.  Over the same period there are also Thursday afternoon sessions for players to enjoy a more relaxed, social game, with help and advice available and a partner guaranteed.

From May to September the club is only open on Wednesday evenings, with a ‘host’ system operating so that partners do not need to be pre-arranged.  In this period many members play with a variety of different partners, providing a good opportunity for experience to be shared, systems to be developed and new partnerships to be formed.  Results are handicapped and an individual winner is declared at the end but there is no strong competitive element and this is a time when many Thursday afternoon players gain the confidence to compete on Wednesdays.

The club enters two teams-of-eight in the Yorkshire League and organises two open events: a multiple teams event played in June for the Malton Cup and a pairs competition in November, restricted to non-expert pairs, for the Ryedale Cup.
