Bridge – Rubber


Activity

Contract bridge.

Where and when

Room 1, Evangelical Church, Bath Street, Market Harborough.   Every Tuesday morning 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 12 board duplicate (pairs) competition or a ‘free and easy’ morning with a choice of ordinary rubber bridge or Chicago.

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.
