Duplicate Lite Bridge Club expands offerings at East Delta Hall

The Duplicate Lite Bridge Club is getting set to start its season in its new permanent home – the East Delta Hall.

Prior to last year, the club played out of Elgin Hall in Surrey, but renovations prompted the move to East Delta.

The location change was an instant hit and has allowed the club to expand, offering more game dates for players.

“We have had an extremely successful year at the hall in partnership with the society who runs the hall,” said director Jane Youngberg, one of the founding members. “We are expanding to another day and have between 80 to 120 players each day who come to the hall Tuesday to Thursday. We feel our club has changed duplicate bridge in the Lower Mainland.”

The club’s official opening is Monday, Sept. 17 at 9:30 a.m. New and returning players are most welcome.

Youngberg said education about the game is important to the group and has been a big part of its success.

She said many people think that duplicate bridge is difficult and only for the very serious, competitive player, she said, adding the club’s players are focused on learning and playing duplicate because it is a great form of bridge.

“The competitive side of the game is still there but the emphasis is on learning, challenging our minds and enjoying the friendship of others,” she added.

East Delta Hall is located at 10379 Ladner Trunk Rd.
