Bridge Section

Bridge

Bridge is a very popular activity at the Club with a current active membership of over 150. We hold friendly, sociable Bridge sessions, with a broad age and skill range. There are sessions to suit all standards of play. We compete in the Fylde & District Bridge League and run in-house competitions throughout the year, culminating in the presentation of trophies and prizes at the end of year Summer Party. The bridge sessions are held in the Wilson Room of the main clubhouse.

A competition is held on President's Day with entry restricted to members of the Bridge Section.

Evening Sessions

Evening sessions of directed Duplicate Bridge are held on Mondays and Thursdays throughout the year. Both sessions begin at 7.00 p.m. (please be seated by 6.50 p.m.) and finish around 10.00 p.m. Table money for these sessions is £1.00 per person.

The Club bar is open from 7.30 p.m.





Morning Sessions

There are two directed sessions of Duplicate Bridge played in the mornings throughout the year. These are more informal than the evening sessions and are popular with all levels of bridge players. Those less experienced players who wish to attend these sessions are made most welcome. The morning sessions are on Tuesday and Friday, and begin at 10.00 a.m. Table money is £1.00 per person, which includes tea and biscuits.

In addition, on other mornings, informal rubber bridge is played by several ad hoc groups in the Clubhouse who come to enjoy a relaxed game and a chat.


Bridge Lessons

Beginners' Bridge lessons are run by Clive Turner on Thursday mornings. Full details can be found by clicking here.

So, if you've never played Bridge or thought it too complicated - don't worry. Come along and learn the basics and meet new friends, in a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere. You're never too old or too young to learn Bridge!

Once you have 'graduated' from Clive's Beginners' lessons you might like to advance your skills by attending Geoff Burnett's 'Play Your Cards Right' lessons. These take place on Wednesday mornings, starting at 9.30am, and aim to help you maximise your card play.

New for 2019, for those of you who have learnt the basics, you might want to take advantage of the more advanced lessons being run by Clive. There are a range of bidding and card play topics you can learn - full details you can find by clicking here.

Details of all lessons are also available via Club notice boards.
