Club Standard Bridge

This holiday is a club standard bridge holiday licensed by the EBU (English Bridge Union) with Masterpoints awarded and duplimated boards used. We have recently introduced electronic scoring to our holidays and hand records are also provided. Our qualified & experienced directors construct a programme of interesting seminars and varied bridge sessions to offer variety during each holiday.

Bridge and Bowls in Paphos, Cyprus

Paphos has been a firm favourite with British holiday makers for many years. In March the weather is usually pleasant and making it an ideal escape from the cold UK climate. If you find time to tear yourself away from the bridge and bowling and everything else the Athena Royal Beach has to offer you will find a great choice of excursions available ‐ to the Troodos Mountains, Limassol, the villages of Latchi and Polis, Kyrenia in Turkish Cyprus, and the divided capital Nicosia. Hiring a car is also a great way to see the island and car hire is inexpensive and, in Cyprus, they drive on the left!

The Athena Royal Beach is widely commended by First for Bridge guests for its excellent cuisine and service. This wonderful hotel is First for Bridge guest's favourite hotel within this hotel group. Our guests love this adult only four star superior hotel because with just 208 bedrooms it is smaller and more intimate than its neighbouring hotel - and of course we have the wonderful Royal or Artemis Hall dedicated to our group for our bridge sessions and seminars.
