Welcome to P3A Bridge Club

Welcome to the Paphos 3rd Age Bridge Club website.

In accordance with the directions of the P3A Committee the P3A bridge groups will cease to meet until future notice.

We run two sessions a week: 

Improvers bridge on Monday mornings, playing both Chicago and Gentle Duplicate, and

Intermediate bridge on Wednesday afternoons, playing Competitive Duplicate 

The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and visitors are most welcome, although you must arrive with a partner. 


Important Information

The Improvers group (Monday mornings) is based at Angelikas Restaurant on Tomb of the Kings Road.

The Intermediate group (Wednesday afternoons) is based at the UKCA club on Tomb of the Kings Road.

Improvers play Chicago and Gentle Duplicate. Table money is €3.00, which includes refreshments - we break midway through the session to give our brains a rest!

Intermediates play Competitive Duplicate. Table money is €3.50 for P3A members and €6.00 for non-members.

We use Electronic Bridgemates for scoring which ensures that the results are available immediately at the end of play, the results are also posted on this website.
