Bridge Club at Windsor!
Windsor Lawn Tennis Bridge Club was originally formed in late 2013 when approximately twenty tennis members came together in the hope of commencing some bridge lessons.
In January 2014 David Clement started the first official ten week course.
In the intervening years the membership has increased at an encouraging rate and our numbers now rest at approximately fifty. In October 2016, and indeed because of this very positive growth, David came to the conclusion that an official committee should be formed. The AGM was held on 17th October 2016 and it was then that our very first Bridge Committee was formed with the appointment of Angela Currie (Chair), David Clement (Secretary), and Laura McLaughlin (Treasurer). In March 2017 the role of Treasurer was passed to Alice Clark and helping alongside is Cathy Fay as Assistant Treasurer.
Our Bridge Club is a wonderful environment in which to meet new people. The game of Bridge is social, fun and also competitive. There is ample opportunity to take part in competitions at many and varied levels. Two of our members Alice Clark and Liz Hunter came first in Northern Ireland in a recent Inter-Club Play competition. We were fortunate in receiving coverage for this result in the South Belfast News on 4th February 2017.
Since the inauguration of the Committee we have run several fun events which take place on an evening of bridge play. We had a hugely successful Christmas Party with great food supplied by our members. In January 2017 we hosted a Robbie Burns night, and more recently a St Patrick’s Day celebration. This coming June 2017 some twenty-five members are heading to Ballycastle for a two night stay. There will be an excursion to Rathlin Island where lots of beautiful scenery may be enjoyed. Bridge play will be held on both evenings.
Come and join the Bridge Club!
Membership of our bridge club is open to all. It is not necessary to be a member of the tennis club.
We currently run two bridge evenings a week:
- Monday 7.30pm to 10.30pm; and
- Thursday 7.30pm to 10.00pm.
