Normandy Bridge Club (Yeovil)
Learn to play and improve your bridge with Alison and Chris on *Wednesday evenings.
How good do I need to be?
The Wednesday evening session is usually split into two groups. Those with some
experience play randomly dealt hands but are able to ask for help at any time during
the session. Alternatively those who wish to start from the beginning will have weekly
structured lessons with handouts and prepared hands. Occasionally the two groups
merge for a presentation on a particular topic. Complete beginners are encouraged to
start in +September. Anyone is welcome especially those who feel uncomfortable in the
atmosphere of a competitive club.
Do I need a partner?
It is always better to arrange to play with someone you know but if you haven't got a
partner, come on your own. We will find you a suitable partner.
What sort of bridge can I play?
We prefer you to join in playing pairs (Duplicate) however you may play Rubber Bridge
if 3 others agree.
Is tuition available?
Yes! During the session help is always available to give you as much advice as you
require. We always expect plenty of questions from both groups no matter how trivial
Are there any refreshments?
Yes. Unlimited tea, coffee, squash and biscuits all included in the price. There is a bar
downstairs (not included). We have a break mid session where we promote a very social
How long is the session?
Both groups start at 7:15pm (prompt) and we aim to finish before 10:00pm Those
playing rubber can start anytime but will be expected to finish by 10:00pm. Doors open
How much will it cost?
Entry is £3.00 per person per session for the more experienced group and £5.00 for
the beginners. The difference is due to course notes which are not provided to the
more experienced group.
Do I have to join the club?
No. We do not have any membership forms (or fees) so there are no hidden costs.
Who do I tell if I want to play?
No-one. Just turn up. We will be happy to see you. Absolute beginners need to confirm
their place at the end of August with a non refundable deposit of £70. No further
payment will be required until lesson 15 at the start of the spring term.
Where do I go?
Normandy Bridge Club is located on the first floor of the Unity Hall (above the Labour
club) which is opposite the bus station on Central Road, Yeovil. There is ample free
parking just outside.
Between us, Alison and Chris have over 40 years of bridge experience and 15 years of
teaching. Both are members of the English Bridge Union Teachers Association. We look
forward to seeing you and your friends for a friendly game of bridge.
