It is with much regret the Club committee has decided that with immediate effect monthly Saturday evening Social Bridge will no longer take place at York Bridge Club.
Although initial trials were encouraging the attendance in recent months has been disappointing. Unfortunately we no longer have anybody who is willing to TD these Social Bridge sessions. Without an organiser the sessions cannot continue.
We realise this news will be disappointing to the small number of people who have enjoyed and continued to support Social Bridge. We can only apologise and hope you understand the reason for this committee decision.
This does not exclude the possibility of the Club offering Social Bridge in the future if a suitable person (not necessarily a qualified TD) is willing to run the sessions. Ideally we need more than one volunteer so we can set up a rota to ensure the sessions can be sustained.
The inaugural winter handicapped pairs competition took place on Thursday 9th January. The spring, summer and autumn Equinox have proved to be popular events where all members can compete equally due to handicaps being applied to the results. A new trophy has been kindly donated by Piers Percival.
The winners of the trophy were Sally and Morris Gregory with 53.3%. They also picked up 6 master points. Very well done to them. There were 8 tables and the event was enjoyed by all.
We now have four quarterly handicapped competitions in the Club calendar. The spring equinox will take place on the evening of Thursday 26th March.
Supporting the Maths Curriculum at Lord Deramore’s Primary School. In our second week with Year 5, the children were introduced to High Card Points (HCPs) and made to count their own HCPs in readiness for 13 card No Trump play next week, when we will also give them the Target Trick Table. One child said “This is better than our normal class”. Long may it last. Read More.............

With so many different lesson and play sessions available for those early in their bridge development, the club has recently pulled together a document that shows what is available. The document outlines how the different lessons and play sessions work together and provides brief information about each allowing you to choose the path most suited to you. Click Here to view the document and look out for a copy on the club wall. We hope you find it useful and a bridge (sorry no pun intended) to playing at the club.
