Newcastle Bridge Club holds seven sessions of duplicate bridge each week – both daytime and evenings – and all players are welcome. On Tuesdays and Fridays a standby player will be in attendance so anyone without a partner can simply walk in and get a game. 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.
The next course of bridge lessons for beginners will commence on Tuesday 26th July 2016, 7 pm – 9 pm and on Thursday 28th July 2016, 10 am – 12 noon. The lessons will be such that people can switch between the day and night sessions.
