Bulletin

The Bridge Club is open to all members of the RDS.  We play on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 pm.  All grades of bridge players are welcome. We provide classes for beginners and improvers.  Due to COVID19 restrictions we can no longer play in our beautiful library, instead we play online from home using Bridge Base Onine (BBO).

If you would like more information about playing in the club, please contact either the President Pat Cannon (087783400) or the Honorary Secretary Cecily O'Donovan (0857670115). While the idea of playing online may seem daunting, we will help you at the start and you'll get confident with a little practice.
