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 online duplicate competitions on BBO on a Wednesday and Friday 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 < admin@merseybridge.org.uk >

This very popular and successful competition previously run for many years by Wirral Duplicate Bridge Club at Heswall Hall is returning once again as a county organised event. As the final competition of the season before the summer break, we very much hope to get as many teams as possible to enter both from clubs and the new county league.

Early registration is suggested as we ideally need to have an even number of teams for this event to run successfully. Full instructions as to how to find the event on BBO and how to link up with partners and teammates will be posted nearer the date.

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 Linda342@icloud.com

Best regards

Linda

 

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 PlayAcol21@gmail.com 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.
