Newcastle Bridge Club holds eight sessions of duplicate bridge each week – both daytime and evenings – and all players are welcome. On Monday Afternoons, Tuesdays, Thursdays (less than 150 Mps) 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 the week beginning 16th July 2018. Lessons will be held on Monday morning 9:30 am – 11:30 am and Tuesday night 7 pm – 9 pm.

A decision was made at the April Committee meeting that there will be no qualifying rounds for the Club Teams Championship. Instead the event will be held as a single day event on Sunday 22 July, with a morning and afternoon session. This decision is consistent with the one previously made for the Club Pairs Championship.
A reminder that to be eligible to win this event, players must:
- Be financial members of the Newcastle Bridge Club; and
- Have played a minimum of six sessions in the preceding twelve months (excluding GNOTs, Country Teams, State Open Pairs and Club Champion events).
The 2018 Country Teams Championship is a state event organised by the New South Wales Bridge Association (NSWBA). Teams must qualify to play in the regional finals.
Newcastle Bridge Club will hold qualifying events on the following dates:
Three sessions on Monday nights: May 14, 21, 28
Two sessions on Wednesdays: May 09, 16
Please note that some of these dates are different to those in the 2018 Program – the three sessions previously scheduled for Thursday night have been moved to Monday night (due to the cancellation of Bridge sessions on Thursday night).
The event is conducted in accordance with Newcastle Bridge Club regulations and NSWBA supplementary regulations. Condition of entry is that each team member must be a member of a regional club affiliated with the NSWBA.
Teams are requested to register prior to the event by completing the entry form located on the board near the sign-on book.
The club will sponsor six teams to the Regional Final by paying the entry fee. Other teams wishing to enter may do so but must pay their own entry fee.
Newcastle Bridge Club will host the regional final on Sunday 3rd June commencing at 9.30 am. Participants are asked to provide their own lunch, but food and drinks will be provided at the end of the event.
