By the 4th February, the club requires that all players at the club are double vaccinated for Covid19. This decision was not taken lightly, but it is considered to be necessary to protect our membership base. This will come into effect even if the state does not open its borders.
Proof of vaccination must be presented at the club to a Committee member before 4th February. The details will be recorded so that proof only needs to be provided once. Proof of vaccination will be confirmed via the presentation of an Australian Government COVID-19 Certificate, the Medicare COVID-19 digital certificate or the Service WA app.
It may be necessary to extend this requirement in the future to also require a booster.
Players with a medical exemption from Covid19 vaccination will not be allowed to play. Again, a decision not lightly taken, and the protecton of the membership base is a priority.
If the state brings in a mask mandate for our situation at any time, players with a medical exemption for mask wearing will not be allowed to play. Again, the prioriity is the protection of our membership base.
The Club conducts regular competitions each Monday (1PM start), Wednesday (10:00AM start) and Thursday (1PM start) in the R A Cook Reserve Pavilion, 55 Gummery Street, Bedford. (Please be seated 10 minutes before the advertised start time). There is also a supervised session on Thursday mornings at 9:30am, held at the Inglewood Library, 895 Beaufort St.

Just turn up, we promise you a game.

Never played bridge before? We run courses on Bridge Basics at the Inglewood Library. Sessions run for 90 minutes each week for 4 weeks and are free. The next course starts on February 22nd at 10am.
You can learn the terminology and the mechanics of playing bridge. There is lots of practice, and a chance to learn a few tricks of the trade. For further details, contact Linley on 9328 5349 or just turn up on the 22nd.
895 Beaufort St
The Bridge Basics course is followed immediately by a course in Basic Bidding, also free.
Have you played bridge before but not at a club or played at a club but you're a bit rusty? It doesn't matter, our Thursday morning supervised session, also held at the Inglewood Library, is for you.
You can practice your bridge and get support along the way. Use a 'cheat sheet' if you want and ask the supervisor for advice when you need it. Practice playing under normal club conditions, like playing to time and playing different people.
If you have a bridge partner bring them along, otherwise just turn up on your own. If you miss a week, we'll be there for you next time. It's flexible, it's cost effective ($5 for each session for members, $6 for each session for visitors) and it's fun.
As a bonus, from time to time, an experienced player will run a 'fast class' - 30 minutes on a topic of interest, maybe some tips on defence or the most effective finessing.
