Newcastle Bridge Club holds seven sessions of duplicate bridge each week – both daytime and evenings – and all players are welcome. The venue is close to Broadmeadow railway station and is also serviced by bus routes. There is disability access and off street parking is available. Tea, coffee and biscuits are included in the table fees which are $6 for members and $7 for non-members. The Club will help arrange a partner if required.
Several courses of bridge lessons for beginners are run throughout the year. The next set of lessons are scheduled for late February 2015. For information contact Wayne Morgan – Mobile 0488 298 599 or Home 02 4962 1816.
|Our latest set of lessons for Bridge beginners concluded on Wednesday 15th October, with a small celebration that evening. Thanks once again to Wayne Morgan for his time and efforts in getting another 20 aspiring Bridge players through the course. Thanks also to his helpers – Rodney, Jeff, Dennis and Ken
These new players have a number of options for continuing with Bridge at our Club:
- They can come along to one or more of our seven sessions each week. Most appropriate sessions at this stage would be Tuesday morning (no partner required), Friday morning, or Monday evening for those preferring nighttime play. Would all members please make these new players welcome. Learners can use their table fee vouchers for these sessions.
- They can continue to come along on Wednesday night from 7.00 to 9.00 pm and join Anita Stiller’s assisted play group. No partner required for this, cost is $5.00.
- A new option for them is a structured play session, to be run by Janet Hill and Bernie Adcock on Thursday afternoons from 1.00 to 3.00 pm. Each session will target particular types of hands with first some reminders on how to bid and play these hands, followed by plenty of practice hands. No partner required for this, cost is $5.00.
- Any combination of the above. You can do them all if you want!
