The Bridge Group has over 25 members, with an average of 20 attending each session. We meet at Bishop Auckland Golf Club at 9.45 every Friday.
The Group operates in accordance with a Risk Assessment (see Link)
The Group was formed in September 2011 and formal lessons were given until Summer 2015.
Although formal lessons have finished, the Group is continuing as a learning group, with revision lessons and lessons on new techniques. The group also has Deal and Play sessions with the last session of the month being scored.
The Group continues to welcome the participation of any u3a member. New starters can be helped to learn bridge by sitting in on lessons and play sessions and making use of the collection of books and DVDs. In addition, the Group has a number of experienced Bridge players who are happy to assist both existing and new members.
We are fortunate that Bishop Auckland Bridge Club has kindly allowed us to use their bridge equipment (boards, cards, stationery and table tops) for a nominal fee.
Although we are learning how to play duplicate bridge we are not forgetting that we are playing for fun and that bridge has a strong social element.
