What we do

Do join us for relaxed and friendly bridge if you have some knowledge of the game. (Standard 3rd year plus).

We are still very fortunate to have a Bridge teacher, Philip Wraight, who starts us off most weeks with a 30 min talk on various topics of revision which individuals have requested.

After that we normally play ‘Chicago’, where we change partners and opponents after every 4 hands, but once a month we play ‘Teams’ when N/S and E/W play set hands competitively against other teams. We average 5 or 6 tables.

No need to come with a partner. Tea and biscuits provided!


January 2020

The U3A Bridge group  celebrated the end of the year with a Christmas lunch at AHSC provided by caterers which was enjoyed by members. 

The Maurice Collett Memorial Cup was presented to the player with the highest winning scores over the last 12 months.  Two players accumulated the same score so Ian Hatton and Brian Jackman shared the honour.


August 2019

From September the increased attendance fees will be in place. We shall add the usual 20p for refreshments and the card fund to the new SLU3A charge of £1.50 per session. So from September 6th please pay £1.70. Still a bargain!

We are planning our Christmas Lunch for Friday December 13th in AHSC followed by bridge as usual.
