'DRAGON' NIGHTS AT SWANSEA

Looking for something to do on Saturday evenings?

Swansea Bridge Club now holds a 'Dragon' night on the 1st Saturday of the month at 7p.m. All are welcome - £4 with prizes.

Welcome to the West Wales Area web site
West Wales Bridge Association
West Wales Bridge Association

If you are visiting or moving to West Wales - our beautiful land of coast and castles - we would love to welcome you to join us for a game of Bridge.  There is a wide range of clubs meeting at least once a week in venues from just south of Bridgend up to Dinas in northern Pembrokeshire and down to Tenby in the south.  Some of the sessions are more competitive, some more socially orientated, but all will guarantee you a very warm welcome!

If you would like any guidance please email our Secretary or call on 01239 891501.

This was an exciting event with some very challenging hands.  Veteran Bill Turner and Linda Pinnock were in the lead at the lunch break, but were overhauled in the afternoon by worthy winners Peter Milewski and Anthony Stevens, pictured at the presentation with Area Chairman Gareth Jones.  The margin of victory in the end was comfortably over 3%, with Linda and Bill second, closely followed by Steve Burgoyne and Keith Davison, Steve Jarvis and  Mike Baker, and Irene Thomas and Anne-Marie Pagett.
