Monday Afternoon Bridge

The  new event  organised by Phil Skinner continues at Swansea Bridge Club on Monday Afternoons


These events have been designed with the Improver bridge-player in mind.  It builds on the success of the Tuesday morning sessions and will be very much on the same lines.  So, we will play Duplicate Pairs, but with a modest number of boards (typically 15-16) with no time limit.  We hope this will engender an informal, no-fear atmosphere, so that everyone can enjoy playing a relaxed, enjoyable game. It is open to all members.


The sessions  start at 1.30 pm, finishing by 4pm.  To ensure that everyone interested is paired with a partner, we are asking you to book your place each week.


To reserve your place  send a brief email (saying you wish to take part) to Phil Skinner at:-


Please say also whether you have a partner, or wish to be paired up with another unmatched player.  Each week , Phil will send you an email asking you whether you wish to take part that week.



Face to face bridge at the club


       F to F bridge on Tuesday evenings has been cancelled indefinitely due to shortage of players and directors. 


With the significant increase in Beginner numbers starting in early September, the Committee has decided to unify the catering arrangements.

Apart from the Tuesday morning group (who have a long-standing agreement), Annette will be in attendance at all sessions, and attendees may order and pay for their (hot or cold) drinks on arrival, with Annette serving both ground and first floors during the session.

The club will not provide biscuits etc. but individuals may bring their own provided no nuisance is caused.

When Annette is in attendance, attendees are only permitted in the kitchen area at her discretion, and no independent catering is allowed.

The new arrangement will operate with effect from Monday 4th September.

SwanseaBC will continue with the existing Monday night  RealBridge 0nline and the Thursday evening f2f sessions. There is now another weekday session on Monday afternoon similar to the Tuesday morning session   Dragon Nights will  continue to be held  on the second  Saturday of the month.

We are not currently operating a host system on Thursday nights, but any single player can ring Barbara Ellis on 01792894030 or email and she will endeavour to pair them up with another. Please give as much notice as possible.

 Tuesday morning bridge continues each week and members who wish to play should contact Michael Williams . Click here to email Michael with your application to play on Tuesday Morning  Michael will confirm availability 24hrs beforehand dependent on numbers. There is no host but partners can usually be found for those who need one.

To start playing please, where at all possible, pay via Bank Transfer to the following account. ( Sort Code 090721,  Santander Account ‘Swansea Bridge Club’ number 71632281). If you are unable to do this, you may leave a cheque  for £30 made out to Swansea Bridge Club with Annette or otherwise send a cheque to Joan Smith at 534 Mumbles Road Swansea SA3 4DH.
