Now you have finished your beginners’ lessons or your bridge refresher course and you are ready to take the plunge into club bridge - but it all sounds a bit daunting and you need someone to hold your hand.  Several clubs run sessions specifically designed for you.  Usually they run a host system for these sessions so that if you don’t have someone to go with you will always be found a partner and get a game.  You will meet other people at a similar stage and perhaps form a partnership with someone to move forward into the more competitive but nevertheless friendly atmosphere of club duplicate bridge.


The following clubs offer sessions sometimes described as “friendly” or “no fear” designed for those starting out on their bridge adventure where the emphasis is rather more on the social than the competitive element of the game:


ABBEY SMITH BC (at Little Horwood, Bucks) - see website - or e-mail Abbey at


ABINGDON BC - see website  - they run a friendly pairs duplicate on Wednesday mornings


AYLESBURY VALE BRIDGE CLUB - the club was originally set up specifically to provide an environment for students graduating from lessons to play duplicate bridge in a friendly atmosphere.  Whilst that remains the fundamental role of the club, we also welcome new members moving to the area or returning to bridge after a time out.  Please visit or e-mail


BLEWBURY BC - social duplicate sessions with expert advice available on three Fridays out of four from Autumn to Early Summer - contact Tina Hollick at


KINGS SUTTON BC  - see website or ring Marian Day on 01295 811393 


OXFORD BC - click on  'When can I play' to find sessions on their website ( headed “Learn and Play” on Monday evenings and Thursday mornings may be for you . Gentle duplicate sessions run on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday evenings. Slightly more formal, the Tuesday morning sessions, limited to partnerships below a certain standard may also be appropriate. 


WALLINGFORD BC - see website and look at the wide range of duplicates offered for different levels of experience in their “Bridge Programme”


WANTAGE BC - see website - they run a social introduction to duplicate bridge on Wednesday afternoons - contact Gaye Kyle on 01235 765810
