York Bridge Club Reopens
York Bridge Club Reopens

Following relaxation of government restrictions York Bridge Club reopened on Tuesday 20th July.

York Bridge Club are running sessions on a Tuesday Afternoon starting at 1-0pm and Thursday Evening starting at 7-15pm.

The Trustees objective is to ensure that the environment is as safe as possible. They have drafted 2 documents which: -

  • Provide an outline plan of how the playing room will be organised and the procedures we have put in place.
  • Best Practice Guidance which members should follow whilst on the Bridge Club premises.

The Trustees Outline Plan can be found HERE

The Best Practice Guidance can be found HERE

We request that all members playing face to face bridge at Holgate Road read both documents thoroughly before attending a bridge session.

Please note it is no longer a requirement for members to wear a face covering. Also a booking process is no longer operating. Members can turn up to play at sessions without giving prior notice

Welcome back to Holgate Road.

After completing beginner classes, the recommended progression is to play in a bridge session with teachers present who can advise you on bidding when you are uncertain what to do   We are currently running weekly online “Learn and Play” sessions on Tuesdays and Fridays 1.30pm, and Wednesdays from 10am

The sessions use the Realbridge platform This allows the students to not only play the game but interact with each other as it also utilises the computer's camera and microphone. This has been very successful and brought several new players into the club   We currently manage around four tables a session, but numbers are growing    It helps inexperienced players gain in confidence as they play more bridge in a relaxed and supportive environment. ..........
