Bridge

Bridge

Warwick Bridge is an active and friendly society dedicated to playing and learning that card game you've always seen your grandparents play but you've never bothered to learn. Bridge is a strategic game played in partnerships in which you convey information about your hand to your partner before trying to win as many rounds or 'tricks' as possible (played similarly to games like Hearts and Whist). If you're interested by the sound of it, or by games such as Chess and Go, come along to one of our sessions on Sunday at 2pm or Wednesday at 5pm and give it a try. And if you think bridge might not be for you, we're sure we can change your mind! We have players of all standards in the society and our team members are always on hand to teach newcomers and offer advice to the less experienced members. Many of our current team have progressed to playing in club events having been complete beginners when arriving at university, so whether you already play regularly or you've never played a card game before in your life, we hope to see you at our next session!

If you are looking for a more competitive element, our society competes in the Portland Bowl, an inter-university knockout competition organised by the English Bridge Union. We also send multiple teams to other annual university competitions such as the London Cup and our very own Warwick Bridge Festival, hosted at Coventry & North Warwickshire Bridge Club.

The society also sends teams and pairs to competitions between members of local bridge clubs. Although only being an honorary invitee into the Garden Cities Trophy Qualifier, our university team came third out of the twelve bridge clubs competing to represent the county of Warwickshire in the Finals. We currently have two teams of six players in the Coventry Bridge League, with our A-Team winning Division 2 and the B-Team securing promotion from Division 3. We also have a pair in Division 2 of the Warwickshire Pairs League and are keen to enter more into Division 3 next season. Other events at local bridge clubs include the Anglo-Polish League and regular club nights at which some of our members are often present.
