Welcome to Merseyside Bridge Centre
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.

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 if accompanied by a member whether you are an experienced player or would just like to improve, but is not suitable for a complete novice.

Keen players will 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.

At the moment our normal activities are in a state of flux because of COVID. The club is currently running Face2Face sessions on a Monday evening and a Tuesday afternoon - and an online duplicate competition on BBO on a Wednesday evening.

Members can also play in the Real Bridge Social Lounge on a Tuesday and Thursday evening.

If you are interested in joining or want further information e-mail us on < >

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear friend Jack and we extend our deepest sympathy to Pat and family at this sad time.

The funeral will take place on Thursday 8th June at 3.00pm at Landican. And afterwards at Rakehey, Red Hill Road, Storeton.


Tea & Coffee - Charity Donation

Each year our club selects a charity to support, this year it is 'Dementia Together Wirral'.  To boost our fundraising we would like to invite members to voluntarily make a charity donation in return for tea or coffee.



Club charity pairs event in aid of “ Dementia Together Wirral”  on Sunday 16th July at 2pm

The entrance fee will be £10 per pair payable on the day which will include refreshments. We will also have a raffle. It would be great to have a good turnout for this event which as well as being fun will raise funds for this excellent local charity.

If you would like to enter please email either John Griffith on or me on as we need to know how many will be coming in order to set up the room.

This is also open to non-members.

There will be no standby but if you would like to come but have no partner I suggest you advertise on WhatsApp. If you are not on WhatsApp email me and I will put a message on WhatsApp on your behalf.

See you there!

Janet Almond

Free English Acol Bridge Club Tournaments

As you will be aware we are returning to F2F bridge on a Monday evening starting on 11 October.  During that time the club duplicate on BBO is suspended.  For those members not quite ready to return to F2F bridge on a Monday evening there is a FREE tournament you can enter on BBO which is highly recommended by a few of our members who have played in it.  Please see details below and if you would like any more info or have any queries please email me at

Best regards



Free English Acol Bridge Club on BBO

The English Acol Bridge Club (TEA) runs on Thursday and Friday afternoons on BBO at 2.15pm and on Sunday and Monday evenings at 7.30pm. 

It usually consists of 8 two-board rounds. An attraction is that there is no cost involved!  Naturally, you do not have to play every day, just on an ad hoc basis. A few of us have played in it and it is a very enjoyable and friendly club.  The standard is not dissimilar to our own club.   

It is organised by a Tony Fern who goes under the BBO name of Vesian. His email is Before you play for the first time you need to drop Tony an email with you and your partners' BBO names so he can register you as eligible to play in the club.

Then, to enter on the day, you have to register WITH your partner about 15 mins before the start time. However there is a partnership desk if you don't have one.  You find the tournament by the same method you log in to our own duplicates on BBO (ie ‘Competitive’ then ‘All tournaments’ then enter TEA or Acol in the search bar).

The numbers have dwindled a bit so Tony is happy for more players to join.
