Learn & Play is being renamed 'Supervised Play'

Learn & Play is having a name change! From 1st October Learn & Play will be known as Supervised Play. This is to help distinguish it from our Bridge for All classes aimed at beginners. Nothing else will change about the sessions, and booking will take place in the same way. For further details about Supervised Play click here.

Friday Evening Cross-Imp Pairs

We are restarting the Friday evening cross-Imp pairs session once a month on 1st Friday evenings, at the club at 7.15pm, with the first session taking place on Friday 6th October

Players are asked to book and pay in advance - the session will only run if at least 3 full tables have booked by 6pm the day before.


Rubber Bridge Knockout Competition (the Meltzer)

The club's Rubber Bridge Knockout Competition is now open to entries. This competition is played between October and May every year. The winning pair receive the Meltzer trophy. 

Entry fee is £5 per player. The closing date for entries is Saturday 30th September.

Tuesday mornings:  this is a Gentle Duplicate session with restrictions on experienced partnerships.

Wednesday evenings: duplicate pairs on 2nd to 5th Wednesdays. The teams session on 1st Wednesday evenings will stay online for the time being.

Thursday evening Learn & Play sessions are at the clubhouse and must be prebooked. Click here for more information about Learn & Play sessions

As always please check the calendar for details. There's no need to prebook club F2F sessions with the exception of 1st Friday evenings and Thursday evening Learn & Play.
