Bridge club

playing cards fanned

In February this year a “Friendly Bridge Club”was started in our Church Hall. As soon as the Coffee Club finishes that is on a Tuesday the tables are set up and play continues until about 12 noon. Rubber Bridge is played.

A fun way to learn bridge

Anyone who would like to play, whether with no knowledge of the game, returning after a break, or looking to join a group, would be most welcome.

We are very fortunate in having three experienced players Kate, Peggy and Margaret who are willing to mentor beginners to the game.

The best way to learn bridge is by playing it but without pressure. Some of our members new to the game have now reached Club level standard. All those in our group enjoy playing in the friendly atmosphere that exists. At the outset we were lucky enough to be given several packs of cards and two bridge tables. Each week players put 50p. into the “kitty” and from that we have been able to purchase another table (spotted on e-bay by one of our members) also new packs of cards and velvet table covers. Incidentally we would love to hear from anyone willing to sell/donate another table.

The number participating varies each week but if you come along you will be welcomed and can be sure of a game.
