John Deech Challenge Pairs

Don't forget that this coming Wednesday evening (22nd May) it's the John Deech Challenge Pairs. This competition is played on 4th Wednesday evenings between September and May and is aimed at both experienced and less experienced players. There are cash prizes on the night, and at the end of the season, plus a trophy for the winner. Click here for further details.  There are free refreshments - wine, beer, soft drinks and nibbles - so come along and join us for a convivial evening of bridge, plus the chance to win a prize! 

Note that this is the last month of the current competition, so for regular players, there's one more chance to improve your position in the ladder. If you haven't played enough times to qualify for the main competition, you still have a chance of winning a cash prize on the night. 

Morrie Marsh Novice Pairs Competition Winners

Many congratulations to Graham Bray & Philip O'Neill who are the winners of this year's Morrie Marsh Novice Pairs Competition held at the club on 16th May. Both are Bridge for All students and they win the Morrie Marsh Trophy which will be formally awarded at the club's AGM in the summer. Well done to everyone who took part in the competition.
