Summer Pro-Am

The Summer Pro-Am will be running again in 2018, this time with Dom Rayner and Peter Waterman coordinating procedings.

There will be six rounds of this event running on the last Monday of each month, except where these are bank holidays - in which case it will be the previous week. i.e.

  • April 30th, May 21st, June 25th, July 30th, August 20th, September 24th

If you are an "amateur" and would like to play with someone more experienced who can (hopefully) help you to progress then please sign up at the club.

If you are a "pro" and would like to help maintain the lifeblood of the club by helping newer players to progress then please sign up at the club.

If you don't know if you're a "pro" or an "am"... ask Dom/Peter.


Summer School Club

  • Monday 30 July to Friday 3 August
  • Tuesday 28 August to Thursday 30 August

10am to 12 noon (drop-offs and pick-ups earlier/later by arrangement)

No card experience needed.


Children (aged 7 - 16) who already play, would like to learn or just want to find out more; are welcome to any or all sessions.  

Adults are welcome to stay (in which case just come along) but unaccompanied children need to be pre-booked.

Ring Graham Jepson on 0114-2686258 or email schools@sheffieldbridgeclub.co.uk


Monthly Masterclass

Dominic is running a series of monthly Masterclasses.

These occur on the last Thursday of the month. Start time 10am prompt, finish time appx 12.30 (so not to clash with the afternoon session folks coming in). £10 per session.

Intended for anyone with NGS in the 50s or high 40s - or anyone who wants to win at bridge!


New Beginners' Lessons

Two new classes will be available from September. See the learners page or the external links below for more details.


Dom will be starting a brand new session for complete beginners. The classes will run on Tuesday evenings from 7pm until 9pm, and will cover everything right from first principles and take students through the first steps to becoming a bridge player. The first class will take place on the last Tuesday in September (25th September). For more information contact Dom by email to teaching1@sheffieldbridgeclub.co.uk, or by phone on 07784997379 or see www.allthingsbridge.co.uk



Ian & Julie's next course for complete (or nearly complete) beginners is starting on Thursday 13th September and the first lesson "Getting Started" is FREE!

Getting Started will teach you how to play MiniBridge which is a simplified version of the game. If this whets your appetite then you will be invited to sign up and pay for future lessons. Module 1 runs up to 13th December, with each lesson consisting of a short Powerpoint presentation followed by assisted play with specially constructed hands.

For more details and information on reserving a place, see bridgefirststeps.co.uk.
