Very regrettably, following the government's latest guidelines, the bridge club is now closed for the foreseeable future.  Updates will be posted here and emailed to members.  If you have any comments or suggestions please email these via the website.

Playing In The Virtual Club

If you are missing playing bridge in the club atmosphere we encourage members, friends and partners to sign up for the two virtual club nights we are running on Monday and Wednesday evenings on BBO.  BBO has practice areas to get used to playing on line and there are helpful videos available on getting started.  There is a WhatsApp group for support and finding a partner if you don't have one, organised by Chris Griffin and also a partnership desk when signing into the virtual club night.  If you are familiar with BBO but just need to know how to join a club night session, Colin or Linda can help.

A few requests for those already playing in the virtual club which will make it helpful to each other:

  • Please add your forename to your profile so that friends can recognise who's who
  • Please have your basic system on your profile
  • Please ensure you SELF alert appropriately ie Benji, weak 2s, stayman, transfers etc etc
  • Please keep an eye on the clock and try to ensure there is enough time to bid and play the hands

Bidding Tips from TD Adam

Click on the Item BIDDING TIPS in the menu on the left to see a tip from our TD Adam Wiseberg about Fourth Suit Forcing.  You have probably come across the convention before but even if you have used it you might not know how it should be used in the modern game.  If you're interested click on it and read further.

Charity Events

Many thanks to those who entered the Macmillan Quiz and gave donations.  To date we have raised £1363.35 which includes £500 by one of the church members in a cake sale.  There were 5 correct answers which included 3 from our club (Mo Kellet, David and Ann Law).  The overall winner, which was drawn, was Sheilagh Green.  Sheilagh is the widow of one of our much loved past members Bryan Green.  Please see the link for the answers  Prenton Meth ANSWERS TO 2020 QUIZ - One Page446.doc 

Welcome to the Merseyside Bridge Centre

Our Wirral based club, established in 1983, is conveniently located in Prenton, Mid Wirral, just 5 minutes drive from the M53.  We play in the church hall of the Prenton Methodist Church, CH43 0RE (see the directions in Information on the left), which is situated in a very pleasant safe part of Prenton, with car parking on the church premises.

We play duplicate pairs bridge  on Monday, Wednesday  and Friday evenings, plus Tuesday afternoon (see the Information link for more details and timings), with 12 or more tables for most sessions. We also have a Chicago session on Thursday afternoon. 

Our aim is to play a good standard of bridge in a friendly atmosphere, and the club is affiliated to the English Bridge Union (EBU), with sessions directed according to the EBU rules.  The club welcomes visitors whether you are an experienced player or would just like to improve, but is not suitable for a complete novice.

  • We operate a standby system for the evening sessions, so that there is no need to arrange a partner in advance as you will always be guaranteed a game.
  • Keen players will also be pleased that the club uses pre-dealt computer generated hands.  The results are recorded on our website, so that you can see details of the hands , and how you did compared to the other pairs.
