August 1, 2023 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 2:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating indefinitely
We are a small, friendly and patient group, full of enthusiasm but until recently short of a space to play. However, we have continued to enjoy
steady success in attracting new members, and happily, we have now secured the use of an Area in the Restaurant at The Brendon Arms, for our meetings.
We start at 2.30 and play for as long as we have four people interested. It’s always a good idea for newcomers to check with Lindsey Sandilands or Elizabeth Shaw first, just in case there may be a week with insufficient members available for a game, but the default is that we make up tables as we arrive and cut in after a couple of hands if there are odd numbers.
Typically our members came to the u3a having played bridge years ago, and want to keep the grey cells active in retirement by taking it up again.
The important element, therefore, is our non-competitive and friendly environment where bidding and play can be discussed constructively.
We particularly welcome those who enjoy a stress-free, good-tempered game of chatty rubber-bridge without the pressure and high emotion of
some club duplicate play!
Aside from the weekly meetings, groups of four can and do meet in each other’s homes and online on a casual basis, sharing phone numbers and
arranging games ad hoc.
We aren’t able to offer lessons to complete beginners, but you are welcome to come along and watch for a session and see if you think
bridge might be for you. Just the one visit should do it..!
