We are back...again!
North Cardiff Bridge Club Yesterday and Today

 

Almost 25 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 whilst enjoying 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 the 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!

 

Friday Afternoon Operating Procedures

We are delighted to be running our ever popular 'live' Bridge sessions once again.

Although all restrictions on participation in activities and requirements to wear a mask have now been lifted we kindly request you continue to comply with Best Practice protocols on Covid-19 mitigation and not to attend the Club if you know or suspect you are affected by the virus. 

We look forward to seeing you soon; meantime take care and stay safe.

 

Tea & Coffee

 

Our popular complimentary Tea and Coffee service has resumed.

Arrangements for its provision have been slightly modified in that we are asking those who wish to enjoy a hot drink to take it at their table.

After we have played five rounds refreshments will be served through the hatch from the kitchen into the main hall.

Bottled water remains available for anyone who does not wish to take a hot drink.

Once you have had your drink then return your cup and saucer and they will be are washed and safely stored for the following week.
