FIRST FOR BRIDGE - CLUB STANDARD BRIDGE HOLIDAYS

First for Bridge has over 20 years’ experience of organising bridge holidays and cruises in the UK and abroad. Our professional service and attention to even the smallest detail sets us apart from other operators and creates the high standard our guests are used to. Our First for Bridge holidays are licensed by the English Bridge Union (EBU) with Masterpoints awarded, duplimated boards used and hand records provided.

REFRESHERS & HOLIDAYS WITH BRIDGE

Refreshers Bridge is aimed at social bridge players, those who wish to improve their bidding and play, or those who simply want a friendly, relaxed holiday with a smaller size group. We do not award EBU master points with these holidays so the more hardened duplicate bridge players do not attend, therefore leading to a more relaxed and social atmosphere.

Read more about Refreshers

On a one week holiday we include three seminars in the mornings lasting 2 hours, leaving you plenty of free time to explore your holiday destination. Topics covered in our interactive teaching seminars might include bidding and card play, such as Stayman and Transfers, Michael's cue bids, Ogust, finessing and unblocking.

In the evening we run a relaxed duplicate session of approximately 16 to 18 hands. The play is not too quick, with the emphasis very much on enjoyment. The evening session usually finishes around 10.30, with a friendly “debrief” over drinks in the bar afterwards.

The social and relaxed side is very much at the forefront of these holidays so come and join us and make new friends.

Please Note: On Refreshers and Play & Explore holidays, we cannot guarantee there will be no half tables.

BRIDGE HOLIDAYS FOR ALL LEVELS

Whichever type of bridge holiday you select with us our professional service and attention to even the smallest details sets us apart from many other operators. We are also pleased to welcome solo travellers on all our holidays and have many rooms for sole occupancy available on most holidays.
