It is sad that we have to advise that long standing club member and previous Chair of the club, Pat Joseph, died on the 22nd March 2020. She was a well liked member of the club who will be missed by many.
Bridge Club Live
The club is now registered with Bridge Club Live, see link below.
The following provides guidance on how to get 4 club members playing together in Bridge Club Live. All 4 obviously need to be full members of BCL and far easier if they have registered Plymouth Bridge Club as their local club.
We are a friendly, thriving club in West Devon. Bridge is played in our own clubhouse complete with several playing rooms and refreshment facilities. We cater for all standards of bridge player and provide a full range of courses for beginners and improvers.
Do come and try us - bridge is a great social activity. You will be made very welcome. We look forward to seeing you. Please contact Judy Ripley on 01752 893524 or Richard Ayres on 01752 600822 for further information about bridge sessions and lessons.
In the light of the recent developments regarding the coronavirus it seems sensible to close the activities of Plymouth Bridge Club for the time being.
This means that afternoon and evening bridge sessions are cancelled with immediate effect and that Monday morning and Thursday evening classes will be postponed to a later date.
In addition the Annual General Meeting scheduled for the 23rd of March will be postponed to a later date.
We will resume the activities of the club as soon as possible and contact you again when this seems sensible.
In the meantime keep as safe as you can and I will look forward to seeing you when the crisis is over.
