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.

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.

Because of the nature of this weekend, it is not possible to entertain non-residential guests at this event.

Forthcoming dates for Really Easy Weekends:
5th to 7th April 2019 - Wroxton House Hotel, near Banbury.
