Hosts

Our hosts do a great job offering players without a regular partner a game on hosted sessions. However, please note they do not play Precision, 5 Card majors, Polish Club et al so if you do wish to play with a host please be prepared to play a standard EBU ACOL based system. Many thanks.

Ilkley Parking

Bradford Council has now implemented new parking restrictions in the centre of town.  These do not currently impact evening sessions but those coming to our daytime events (including Sundays) are recommended to allow additional time for parking. 

Cow and Calf In Ilkley

Stepping Stones

Our Stepping Stones sessions take place on selected Friday evenings. They are designed to enable students/newcomers to play in regular club duplicates and to help form partnerships. Accordingly the host system is only available for up to three sessions per individual player to help us meet these aims. Many thanks.

Duplicate Taster Sessions

On Monday afternoons from 2pm to 4.30pm with a host. Designed to help social bridge players and not for absolute beginners (who we suggest join one of our teaching classes). Cost £3.50 per person and lots of assistance given if needed.

Teams Workshop

 Each Thursday morning a group meets and looks at ways of improving bidding, play and defence from selected hands. This group is suitable for all members who wish to improve but particularly those keen on playing in the Yorkshire teams league. Since this Workshop began  over £13,000 from attendees donations have gone to the Haematology Trust Fund at the local Airedale Hospital and £150 to the charity Children with Cancer. Next session will be Thursday 17th October.
