Bridge (Tuesday Morning)


Activity

Contract bridge.

Where and when

Room 1, Evangelical Church, Bath Street, Market Harborough.   Every Tuesday in time to commence play at 10.00

Other information

Most weeks we draw for starting tables and play progressive rubber bridge in two one hour sessions with winners and losers moving tables between sessions.

Occasionally we hold a gentle duplicate (pairs) or a three round knockout rubber bridge competition or a ‘free and easy’ morning with a choice of ordinary rubber bridge or Chicago.

In line with the U3A commitment to continuous learning, each month a revision board is available at all meetings explaining how to use whichever device is being highlighted that month to help improve bidding and card play.

New members are welcome as long as they have a basic knowledge of the game and can explain their bidding to opponents if asked. Players without a partner can often be accommodated on progressive rubber bridge weeks if flexible.
