It has recently come to our attention that John has passed away. John had been a home member of St. Andrew for some years having been a member of GBC previously. John had been ill for many years but continued to play bridge until the disease took its toll last summer when he could not come to the club. Bridge appeared to be a comfort to him in his latter years continually struggling to St. Andrew to play the game he loved. The membership will remember John fondly and extend their condolences to family and friends.
Further to various situations over the past few days we have decided to cancel ALL club tournaments and classes until further notice.
Please continue to check the website for further information.
St. Andrew Bridge Club welcomes bridge players of all standards and endeavours to organise opportunities and tournaments to facilitate this.This includes regular tournaments and teaching classes..
Our tournaments run on Sunday afternoon, play starts at 1.00pm so we invite players to register by 12.50 and on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings with play starting at 7pm sharp so we invite players to register for these tournaments by 6.50 pm.
On the first Monday of each month we will replace our normal Monday tournament with a learners tournament. The format of the tournament will be adjusted to have opportunity to discuss and analyse the most instructional hands of the tournament in order to improve tournament play. We would of course encourage our more experienced players to attend and offer their help and experience.
Table money is £3 for members and £5 for non members.

If you are interested in learning bridge, or maybe brushing up on your game if you haven't played for a while, or if you want to improve your game generally. You can join a group at any stage.
St Andrew Bridge Club at Charing Cross is running classes on Monday evenings for all levels of the game. They provide structured learning in a friendly setting. We have three teaching courses:
Beginners; These assume you are starting from scratch with no real knowledge, only an enthusiasm to play a fantastic game and are based on a course designed by the Scottish Bridge Union
Improvers; A refresher class and further development of bidding skills and basic card play
Advanced; How to handle difficult bidding situations and further teaching on how to improve card play.
