Rugby Bridge Club

Contract bridge was described by The Times newspaper as ‘the best game ever invented’, and the club wants more residents of Rugby and the surrounding villages to experience its pleasures at first hand.

Bridge provides superb entertainment and stimulus for the brain, and is a great way to keep those little grey cells working.

Club spokesman Peter Langley said: “The club has flourished since its early days, has a current membership of 140, and provides excellent entertainment for a range of abilities in playing sessions on most days of the week.

“Bridge is an inexpensive game and all equipment is provided. We offer a warm and friendly welcome to players of all standards and to those entirely new to the game.

“We have been teaching bridge for 16 years and our lessons follow standards and procedures laid down by the English Bridge Union (the national body responsible for the game). Come and have a go!”
