Having obtained planning permission the Club’s Trustees have now instructed our architect to draw up detailed plans to enable us to go out to tender to builders in the coming weeks. So the momentum of the project is still being maintained during lockdown.
Do you know where the proposed new purpose-built premises will be built? The Club will be based in the grounds of Acomb Sports Club in a pleasant area of west York.
The first picture above was taken around 100 metres from the entrance gates to the sports club. It shows Acomb Green with St Stephen’s church in the background.
The second picture shows the sports ground itself from those same gates. The new bridge club will be built at the side of the existing sports club.
There is still a long way to go but these are exciting times for York Bridge Club.
The current pairs league will finish on 31st May and a new, revamped, three tiered league will commence. Each league will have up to 12 pairs with matches taking place over a calendar month. At the end of this the monthly winner for each league will be announced. There will also be promotion and relegations each month between the leagues.
If you require further information or you are not already involved and would like to participate, please email email@example.com
Members can join the leagues at any time. Support is also available for those members who are less technically confident and/ or don’t have a partner. This includes the offer of trial games to ensure you are familiar with the online platform, and telephone support to help you with BBO registration. We encourage our members to give online bridge a try – its quite straightforward if you have the confidence to give it a try.
Following our recent teams match with St Albans Bridge Club we have been talking to some other clubs to organise interclub bridge. As a result, we plan to compete in an Anglo-Roman Bridge League. This is designed to be a league played each week during June between York, St Albans, Bath, Chester, Louth and Hitchen.
Each team will play against one of the other teams each week. (Five matches in total). The matches will be over 12 boards with IMPS scoring converted to Victory Points (VPs). The number of teams is flexible depending on the interest and will vary from a minimum of five teams (20 individuals) up to ten teams (40 individuals). Teams will be chosen so that a wide range of abilities will be able to play.
If you are interested in playing could you please contact Stuart Kay at firstname.lastname@example.org and let him know who you would like to partner. If you don’t have a partner, we will try and find you one. This is another opportunity to play online bridge during lockdown. Please give it your support.

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.
