Evening Drives


There is a Host System operating for Monday and Wednesday evening sessions and for the Tuesday and Thursday afternoon drives. So even if you do not have a partner you can still come along and be sure of a game on these occasions.


The host system does not operate on week 3 Mondays, this being a teams night.


If you would be willing to volunteer for a place on the host rota please speak to Jessie Dent (Mondays), Ray Foster (Tuesdays and Thursdays) or Susan Hoyle (Wednesdays) or leave a message for them at the bar.

Latest Club News

James Newby

As members know, Jim very sadly died suddenly earlier this month.

His funeral will be at  11.30 am  on Thursday 4th April at Scholemoor Crematorium,  Lidget Green, BD7 2PS.  It is for friends and family and will be followed by a service of thanksgiving for his life at Bradford Cathedral, Stott Hill  BD1 4EH  at 1.00 pm.

Future Club Training and Seminars

The Mentoring system seems to be working extremely well and still has several months to run.  The Club would now also  like to organise some stand-alone seminars on topics of interest. For instance, a seminar topic could be on team tactics or further conventions or cue bidding and splinters or defence etc.  If you have the necessary expertise and would be willing to run one of these seminars it would be great  - so please let someone on the Committee know.

The Bradford Swiss Pairs Sunday April 14th

On Sunday 14th April the Club is hosting a Swiss Pairs event. It starts at 1.00 pm, there's a substantial buffet and it should be a really enjoyable day. It's a great opportunity to meet and play against people from other clubs as well as the other Bradford members who will be playing.

Full details can be found on the YCBA website under the Events tab and there are some entry forms on the table in the coffee room.

Club Championship Pairs Event

Congratulations to Louise Armitage and Sandra Andrews who won the Ladies Championship Pairs Drive on March 13th and to Alistair Copeland and Alan Jarvis who won the Men's event.

Many thanks to Stuart for all the work that he put in running two events simultaneously.  It was really appreciated by everyone who played.

Evening League Pro-Am

With only one round of matches remaining in this year's competition Team Davies' lead has been cut to 4VP.


Hot on their heels is Team Andrews L. and Teams Eaton and Andrews M. still have a theoretical chance of winning.


Plenty to play for in the final matched on April 2nd.


All the match results and the league positions can be viewed here.

Waddington Shield Success

 The Bradford team of Stuart Davies, Alan Jarvis, Steve Blackburn and Gill Copeland have reached the semi-finals of the Waddington Shield, the annual Yorkshire k/o teams event. This is the major county teams-of-four competition. The winners will represent the YCBA in the EBU Pachabo Cup competition (inter-county teams of four championship). We wish our team well for the next round.

The Porch Light

Please note that the movement activated  light in the Club porch  is now working and switching on.  It has a timer and will stay on for about thirty seconds when activated and then switch off automatically.  So, if you are a keyholder, just leave it when you lock up.  You don't have to turn it off manually.
