Hunter region: The game is on!
Playing bridge is fun. It’s good for health, brains and social interaction. It has been played for hundreds of years. While the pandemic forced bridge clubs to close, it also inspired bridge players to get online and play with friends in clubs and competitive environments.
With a little help, people who had limited computing experience began playing bridge online with friends and other club members.
Now bridge clubs are open again, and players can enjoy “face to face” bridge at clubs and continue to play online in local, national and international events.
In 2022, the Hunter Inter Club competition was run online for the first time. Southlakes Bridge Club, with a 12-member team of experienced online players, won the competition.
Hunter Region Bridge is the local area association of 16 clubs spread out from Singleton Bridge Club in the north to Southlakes Bridge Club in the south.
Interested people can visit the Hunter Region Bridge Association website at www.hunterregionbridge.com.
It is easy to learn the protocols of the play. Most bridge clubs provide lessons for beginners, supervised sessions for improvers and opportunities for players returning to bridge to update their bridge skills and learn about new trends.
Southlakes Bridge Club encourages beginners to practice their skills with friends and online.
