- Operate the dealing machine. Itís not rocket science!

A curriculum for the course(s) is already available. You would be paid for this role.

Where appropriate, full training will be paid for by the club. Also, there will be support from club members.

If you are at all interested, please contact one of the committee to find out more.

The Memorial Hall is looking to fill the role of treasurer. If you are at all interested, please speak to† Gill O'Keeffe or any of the committee.

WBU YOUTH SIMULTANEOUS PAIRS AT WELSH BRIDGE CLUBS - 15-19 APRIL 2024

Earlier this month the WBU entered teams into the Junior Camrose and Peggy Bayer Junior Internationals which took place in Belfast.†Both our teams performed well, especially considering that many of the team had only been playing for a few months! You can help funding the training and development of our Under 25 Junior players by playing in your clubs heat of the WBU YOUTH SIMULTANEOUS PAIRS. Our next target is to have Junior Camrose and Peggy Bayer teams again representing Wales in the 2025 junior home internationals between England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Ireland. To do this we need to raise in excess of £5K per year. We have to support and encourage young players ― they are the future of Welsh Bridge.

It is most important that you read the Guidelines set out to keep everyone safe while playing bridge at the club.

Payment of Realbridge Sessions

Please try and keep track of how many Realbridge sessions you have played vs the number you have paid for, rather than waiting for the club to notify you. 

You can see the list by clicking on Realbridge Attendance, which is the 9th item down in the main menu on the left. 

This doesn't tell the whole story though because if you play with a guest you will have to pay for both of you but will only be counted once in the list. 

 Things will run much more efficiently if you can each take responsibility for topping-up your table money credit before it runs chase you for a further payment. 

Information on how to pay can be found by clicking here.
