Some 20 years ago a group who together started learning the game of Bridge decided to enhance their new found skill by meeting at each other’s houses to play a few hands whilst enjoying tea, cake, and conversation.
Word spread; others soon asked if they could join in and before long numbers had started to outgrow the capacity of some homes, so discussion turned to the idea of hiring a local hall one afternoon a week and playing there.
The concept was one of people enjoying their Bridge in a sociable manner, without any of the pressure some felt when attending events at more traditional venues.
This remains as true today as it did then; our friendly welcoming and inclusive atmosphere often being cited as the main reason people come along for their Friday afternoon game.
Initially meetings were held at the Memorial Hall in the village of Rhiwbina but for a variety of reasons a decision was made to relocate and for many years now the Club has met at Bethany Baptist Church Hall, the location of which can be viewed on this map.
Duplicate Bridge is played from 1:30 - 4:15pm on Friday afternoons; those attending are encouraged to arrive by 1:20pm in order to facilitate smooth running of the event.
Half way through each session we break for refreshments when everyone gets the chance to socialise over a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit.
If you are considering visiting don’t worry about coming on your own. We operate a ‘Host System’ so you are sure of a game as someone will always be available to partner you.
There is no obligation other than to turn up and enjoy an afternoon in the company of fellow players; some good, some average, some trying hard, so pop in and see how you get on and rest assured we will make you more than welcome!
