The county newsletter for June 2019 has been added. It is under County News Page.
Many of the clubs in Merseyside offer beginners' and/or improvers' lessons. There are also easy duplicate sessions for improvers. As these change in availability it is not possible to keep a definitive list on this site. You can access the clubs' websites through the link top left on this site. Depending on where you live, possible clubs to try include Blundellsands BC, Deva, Liverpool BC, and Merseyside Bridge Centre.
For other suggestions, please click here to go to the EBU (English Bridge Union) education charity's website.
