No Fear Session
No Fear Session


"We held the first Wednesday Evening No Fear session this week. This was a very relaxed evening with just 15 boards played. It was played under EBU rules but with full awareness that most of the players were inexperienced and needed appropriate help! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and we would encourage our learners and early intermediates to try it out. All are very welcome to attend this session with or without a partner "

Visitors from Las Vegas
Visitors from Las Vegas

We always welcome visitors at York Bridge Club. On Monday evening 12th August we were delighted to welcome Teresa and Craig Caplin who live in Las Vegas USA. 

Both now retired Craig was a bond trader on Wall Street and Teresa was a publicist. Their daughter has recently settled in London and they are currently travelling within the UK. 

Clearly residents of Las Vegas play more than just poker and roulette (Craig is a poker player). Craig and Teresa are also accomplished bridge players, coming top East West with 63%. They take away 30 English master points for their excellent play. It was a pleasure to meet them.

York Success in the Waddington Cup

The Waddington Cup is a YCBA competition for the top bridge players throughout Yorkshire. It's a competition for teams of four with qualifying heats.

Clubs have differing qualifying criteria. We use the Club's Internal League as the qualifying event with the winners of the scratch competition representing York Bridge Club. 

The Waddington Cup was competed for on Sunday 7th July. Keith Joules, Barney Nisbet, Frank Dixon and Paul Brereton represented York. In a tough field of 13 teams from Club's around the county, they put in a strong second set to finish well in third place. Only Leeds and Sheffield finished above them. Very well done to the York team.

Saturday Evening Social Bridge
