THE HELP DUPLICATE

If you are considering venturing into the world of

Duplicate Bridge for the first time,

you will find the

Help Duplicate a great way to tip your toe into the water of competitive bridge.

There is absolutley no pressure to play quickly 

as we only play between 12 and 16 boards.

And better still if you get stuck with a bidding or a play problem,

you can just raise your hand and

ask one of the experts for Help.

They will come  to your table, during the auction or play of the hand, and

guide you as to Correct Bid or Plan of Play.

If you think this is for you, please fell free to visit our very popular Help Duplicate.

(You do not need to be a member of St Luke's Bridge Club.)

Welcome to St Luke's Bridge Club
St Luke's Duplicate Update

                       http://www.bridgeclublive.com

     HI TO ALL

St. LUKES MEMBERS.

We hope you are keeping SAFE, WELL, and HEALTHY.

We have all managed to stay the course through 14 weeks of Lockdown, and things are starting to get slightly easier.

West Hants Tennis Club has reopened the Club House. You can now get a small selection of food and drink in the restauraunt. 

However we have deceided that it is still too early to start playing bridge. Either at St Luke's on a Monday or Breakfast Bridge on a Friday. 

We are going to take our advice from the Government and the English Bridge Union as to when they think it will be safe to return to our club.

You might be interested to know that The Knole Bridge Club run by Frank Groome is reopening for play on Monday 13th July 

 

So are you still missing your weekly fix of St Luke's Bridge?

If so,

Don't forget to join all the gang on line

at 1.00pm every Monday afternoon and 10.00am every Friday morning on

Bridge Club Live 

 

 

THE MORE MEMBERS THAT PLAY

THE MORE IT WILL FEEL LIKE OUR OWN CLUB. 

We all look forward to seeing you at ST. LUKE'S on line every Monday afternoon and Friday  morning

 

 

CORONAVIRUS AND ST LUKE'S BRIDGE CLUB.

                             16th March 2020.

Following the Government's advice regarding Social Distancing  and attendance of Clubs, there will be

            NO FURTHER BRIDGE

at either St Luke's at the West Hants Club or Breakfast Bridge at the Knole Bridge Club.

Both of these Duplicates will recommence when we are advised by the Government and the English Bridge Union that it is safe to do so. 

It is beginning to look as if a return to playing bridge safely in our bridge clubs may not happen for another 2-3 months. Sometime between October and the end of the year  

As the situation develops we will keep you informed of any change of circumstances.  

In the meantime please keep safe, and healthy.
