There will be important and significant changes to Lancs BPS wef 1st September.

The online association will be taken over by Lancs County (LCBA) and the name changed to Lancashire Online Pairs (LOP).

Other Lancashire clubs will be invited to join in.

As far as players are concerned the main difference will be that they will pay fees to LOP not Southport. There will be minor change in that to find the tournaments they will search for LOP not BPS.

Welcome to Southport Bridge Club

We have decided to introduce face to face (F2F) bridge in August.  Initially there will be a reduced schedule starting 2nd August 2021, with just 3 sessions per week:

Monday morning  10.00am

Tuesday evening  7.30pm

Thursday afternoon 2.00pm

There will be a maximum of 10 tables so a booking system will be in operation. 

For the 1st 2 weeks the sessions will be free and will not be NGS ranked

We will be using EBU guidance to help us devise and implement procedures to ensure that we play in a safe and comfortable environment.

Our plan is to run with the reduced schedule until mid-September and use this period to consult further with you, the members, and then develop a more extensive schedule.

We will continue to support Online bridge through Lancashire BPS for the foreseeable future.

Bridge Classes 2020/21

We have continued to provide online lessons throughout the Pandemic.

All our beginners have now become temporary members and 5 have taken the first step into online bridge and are thoroughly enjoying it. It has taken quite some time for our teachers to improve their technology skills but we have now got a full teaching programme.

Monday Advanced Class : 10.20 on BridgeBase Online

This is an advanced class where we play a Teams match then meet on Zoom to discuss and review the boards.

Wednesday Evening Class : 7.45 on Zoom

This is a beginners class where we consolidate the basics and help you improve your card play. We meet on Zoom discuss the topic and then move to BBO where we play 6-8 boards which are selected to cover the work discussed.

Friday Morning Class : 10.20 on Zoom

This is an improvers class run similarly to the Wednesday Evening which continues work on card play and introduces further conventions while consolidating the basics.

These are open to all Southport Members and visitors run by a group of Volunteers.

All teachers have Zoom licenses and so you can chat about any problems.
