December advanced seminars

There is an opportunity to run two “advanced seminars” before Christmas. The first, on December 1st, will be a thorough revision of the tools we use for bidding slams. The second, on December 15th, will be an introduction to high standard defence play; signals, dsiscards and reading the shape of the table. (Who has what points, what are the likely shapes). There will be handouts for each one, circulated in advance and lots of boards to play.

John Guest will be running these, at 10-00am on those two Wednesdays, at the Holgate club. If you are not on John’s email group for seminars, please send him an email so that you can be added.


The Bridge Club Annual General Meeting (AGM) took place on Wednesday 24th November 2021. A final version of the minutes is attached Click Here.

New Premises - Progress Report
New Premises - Progress Report

Stuart, chairman of the Trustees showing some of the members who attended the AGM, what the new club premises looked like at this stage.

On 24th December 2020 the Trustees completed on a contract for the sale and leaseback of Holgate Road, a 199 year lease on our new clubhouse with Acomb Sports Club, and a contract with EK Build Ltd to build our new purpose-built premises. Building working commenced in early January,

Delays in the supply chain for building materials means that we are still unable to complete the installation of windows and doors. As a result, we do not currently have a date for the completion of the build. Whilst we wait, online and face to face sessions continue. Whilst we understand that some members may still be cautious playing face to face and have been waiting for the new premises to open, we would like to encourage more of you to come back to play bridge at Holgate Road until the new premises open. .

75 Years History of York Bridge Club
75 Years History of York Bridge Club

The Club’s 75th Anniversary Year will soon come to an end. Opportunities to celebrate our Anniversary have sadly been limited by coronavirus.

If you are interested in the Club’s history, Club Secretary Mark Dunkley has written a 68 page book including over 60 pictures. The book is priced at £10 and all proceeds are paid to York Bridge Club. Please contact Mark by email at if you would like to buy the book. It is an interesting story and an ideal Christmas present to a current or past member of the Bridge Club.
