Really Easy Weekends

'House parties', designed for novice players of up to approximately 5 years experience. Players are probably below the rank of Master and lower than a Jack on the NGS scale. These weekends are strictly limited to 10 tables.

The Spring weekend offers a choice of staying for two or three nights (so playing on three or four days). There are bridge sessions each day. These are mostly normal pairs sessions, and on Sunday we will play a Swiss Pairs competition - please see the shedule below for the times. There will be a seminar, with hands to play, on Saturday morning, and on Friday afternoon we will discuss the hands we have played in earlier sessions.

Forthcoming dates for Really Easy Weekends:
5th or 6th to 8th April 2018 - Wroxton House Hotel, near Banbury. 2- and 3-night options available
