Support the Scotland Ladies Bridge Team at the World Championship Finals
The Scottish Ladies Team has qualified for the World Championship Finals in China for the first time. The New Melville Bridge Club wants to celebrate their success in reaching the finals AND support them in their efforts to raise over £10,000 to fund the expensive trip.
The New Melville Bridge Club is holding a:
Bridge Pairs Tournament and Afternoon Tea on Saturday July 20th 2019
The afternoon will consist of a Pairs tournament of around 20 boards followed by a sumptuous tea and raffle. A facilitated discussion will then be held, to review some of the more interesting hands of the afternoon. These discussions will be led by International players – and some of the Ladies Team – hear about some of their disastrous bidding and play, as well as success stories!
Open to all abilities, from those taking lessons at the MBA up to International and Gold standard players.
Please note all players will be playing against those of matching ability (minnows will not be playing against sharks), it’s a FUN afternoon!
Places are £10 per person and we would ask you to sign up as a pair, if at all possible. We will try and arrange pairings if you want to sign up as an individual.
Sign up online HERE or there are sheets on the club noticeboard.
Are you interested in learning to play Bridge? If so, we offer a full range of classes extending over six terms (three years) which take you from absolute beginner to club player.
Our classes for the Autumn Term of 2019 are now announced. Click HERE to download an application form.
More information about our Academy and classes can be found in the Melville Bridge Academy section of our website (see left hand menu) where you can also submit an enquiry.
On Wednesday afternoons we run a Gentle Pairs Bridge Session starting at 1.30 pm. These are aimed at players who are currently in the second year of classes and above or for those people who have completed all sixty lessons but are not yet ready to take the plunge into tournament bridge.
About 10-12 hands are played under the supervision of an experienced player who will help with the bidding and play.
You can come along without a partner and will either be matched up with another person in the same position or the experienced player. The session cost £3 per person. Non members of the club are welcome to come and give this a try!
An occasional series of articles for newer (and some experienced) players.
