We are an informal social group learning together by playing rubber bridge under the patient guidance of Judith Crowhurst, who loves the game having played since she was a child. In Spring 2018 we started meeting in the Merry Harriers pub on Wednesday evenings. We don’t have fixed partners and if numbers are uneven, we pair up or sit out for a hand.
In April 2020, after the pub had closed its doors because of lockdown, we started using a great online app called ‘Trickster cards’ . This has an integrated sound and video function enabling us to continue playing while staying at home. We have managed to maintain our convivial approach to the game; with a glass of wine in hand after the first rubber it is almost possible to forget that you aren’t in the same room as the other players.
We are looking forward to returning to the Merry Harriers when restrictions are lifted…
