Advanced Bridge

February 28th - 4th  2016

If you play Bridge regularly at club level or above, but feel a bit 'stuck’ and feel you are not improving as fast as you would like, then this is the holiday for you!  The holiday gives you the opportunity to get off the “plateau” and significantly improve the standard of your game, by playing more advanced Bridge than you would on a standard holiday.

Duplicate Bridge - On each of the 5 days there will be a competition of at least 24 boards, played late afternoon and in the evening.


Full Mornings - On two of the mornings there will be an in depth tutorial session with illustrative hands to get you thinking.


Short Mornings - These two mornings will begin with a discussion of tricky hands encountered the previous day, but will finish at the 10.45am coffee break, leaving more free time to explore the Lake District.

-   'To bid or not to bid ?'  and    'Defence to 1N and escape from 1NX'.

The holiday begins at 3.15 p.m. on Sunday afternoon, has plenty of free time to see the Lake District, and ends with coffee at 10.45 a.m. on Friday morning. 

Prices are per person for the 5 night stay and include full Cumbrian Breakfast, morning coffee, light afternoon tea,  3-course Dinner and VAT @ 20 %.

A deposit of £150 per person is required for the holidays, which can be made by cheque or credit card. This is non-refundable unless the room is subsequently re let.  Cancellation insurance is available.
