New Players

If you have recently learned how to play bridge or already play socially, you might want to try Duplicate Bridge, the form of the game to be found in most bridge clubs and in competitions. Most clubs welcome new players and many offer a "host" arrangement which means that you can turn up for a game even if you don't have a partner. For details of Worcestershire clubs, refer to the Clubs section.

If you are not quite ready to join a club, there are two other ways to have a go at Duplicate Bridge in Worcestershire. There are two "Gentle Duplicate" clubs meeting weekly and offering an introduction to duplicate for new players in a friendly atmosphere and at an easy pace of play; additionally, a number of clubs in the county are offering "Try Duplicate" sessions, where a separate section for less experienced players runs alongside the club's regular evening game.

Gentle Bridge Options

We are currently trying to create a wide range of options for players who do not feel ready yet to play full Club sessions - possibilities include various monthly Try-Duplicate sessions (approx 15 boards, with hosts on hand) in different clubs and on different days of the week. Look out also for Supervised play sessions.

See this link for details (as of Summer 2019) Gentle Options

Try Duplicate

The following clubs are running regular Try Duplicate sessions:

Worcester BC run a Try Duplicate session on the first Wednesday evening of every month. For details of the club, please refer to Worcester Bridge Club Website. To book a place on the next Try-Duplicate evening please contact Mike at

Try-Duplicate evenings have also been organised at other clubs; Bewdley BC run Intermediate sessions at various times, when there are enough players to make a section. If you would like to receive regular details of Try-Duplicate events by email or would like a chat about Try-Duplicate, please get in touch with the County's Education Rep Mike Vetch, at or on 01905 769877.
