The inaugural meeting of the bridge club took place on the 12th June 2012, with eight people getting together to decide on how we would run the group.
It was decided that, although you need to have some sort of competitive edge in any game, we would try to combine learning with pleasure, as is the ethos of the U3A. The group started with three complete beginners, who were introduced to the game and have stayed with us and progressed to be competent players.
We are now in March 2019, meet twice a week and have 10-15 regular attendees (depending on whether it is a Tuesday or a Thursday). We have regularly introduced new players (some from starting as complete novices) and all are now competing at the level of the existing players.
We still run the group on a very friendly basis, no one is over competitive and players are encouraged to ask questions rather than guess.
New beginners or players wanting a game are always welcome and encouraged.
We have set up a "Table" for beginners. We now have 4-5 beginners(27 Mar 2019) and have started beginners' coaching (Currently on a Tuesday from 1-3pm but will move to a Wednesday from 2-4pm from 10 April). If you would like to go on the waiting list for beginners please contact the bridge club Organiser who will contact you ASAP.
