Group leader: Dorothy Nicholls
Where: St Andrew's Church, Monkseaton
When: 1st and 3rd Friday of each month
We meet promptly at 2pm throughout the year, enjoying a sociable afternoon.
Like bridge, the standard game is for four players in pairs, but unlike bridge, it can also be played by two or three. We draw for partners each session, so members have a chance to meet and play with players of all abilities, and we may play as a three or a four depending on the attendance. As there are a number of versions of rules for canasta, we play by a set of house rules.
New members most welcome
