All ages, come and enjoy duplicate bridge—students free

Which Session?

Club Duplicate Pairs (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings, and Thursday afternoons every week)

Monday evening (start 7.00pm; matchpoints), Wednesday evening (start 7.30pm; matchpoints), and Friday evening (start 7.30pm; cross‑IMPs) at the YC have traditionally provided the strongest club duplicate in the UK. Rub shoulders with international players, grandmasters, and students many of whom will go on to become the stars of tomorrow. But don’t be intimidated by that—YC members are very friendly and the TD very understanding. So if you are an established player or intermediate player looking to step up in class then this is the game to choose. Thursday afternoons (start 1.00pm; matchpoints) are less high‑powered—there is some quality to daylight that deters experts. If you need a partner just turn up and one will be provided, or try our facebook page.


Supervised Play (Monday evening 7.30pm–9.30pm, Wednesday 1.00pm–3.00pm every week)

This is intended for beginners who have taken a course of lessons or intermediate players looking to learn further. See the classes page for further details.


YC Knockout

This is a strong teams‑of‑four double‑elimination knockout event with a £1,000 first prize (and a chance to qualify for the Lederer) open to YC members only.


It now begins in January each year (it will be February in the 2018 season). The winners of the 2017 season will be eligible for at least a play‑off match for a place in the 2019 Lederer. More information, the draw, and results are on the YC Knockout 2017 page.


London Super League

This is a twice‑yearly teams‑of‑four league run by Nick Sandqvist, erstwhile club manager. It consists of two divisions with Division One very strong (with many international players). Two teams are promoted from the lower division and two teams are demoted from the higher division each season. Division One plays on some Wednesday evenings (usually every other week) and Division Two plays on Tuesday evenings (again usually every other week) at the YC. Start time is 7.30pm in both divisions. See the LSL website for further details.



† Note: The club is closed on bank holidays and bank holiday weekends in England and in the week between Christmas and the New Year.
