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 will begin on 30th July. To register contact Wayne Morgan – Mobile 0488 298 599 or  Home 02 4962 1816.

Club Teams Championship

This is a final call for entrants in the club teams championship. The qualifying rounds will be held on Saturday 2nd and 9th of August and on these days there will not be a pairs event. The best four teams will then take part in the final to be held on Saturday 23rd August at the same time as the normal Saturday pairs.  We’d love as many teams as possible to play – no need to put your name down, just find a team and turn up for a 1pm start.

ABC Radio Interview

Those of our members who listen to the local ABC radio station may have heard the interview with Wayne Morgan publicising the game of bridge.  Wayne performed admirably and the ABC has been using an exerpt from the broadcast to advertise upcoming programs this week – more publicity for us!

We look forward to lots of new members as a result!
