Over 70 youngsters attend Stamford Inter-Schools Card Play day

On 30th June 2017 Stamford Bridge Academy hosted an Inter Schools Card Play day. Over seventy young players from seven schools took part, competing in either minibridge or bridge. The leading pairs from each school received a small trophy, and the top schools each received major trophies presented by Alan Shillitoe, manager of the England Under 26 squad and a driving force in the creation of the Junior Award Scheme.

This was part of Stamford's rapidly growing junior bridge programme, led by Liz Dale, Jenny Harding, Sandra Curran and Marlene Jones. Thirty-four members of the bridge club have received “buddy” training, and have gone on to create the chance for students to learn in sixteen schools so far - and that figure is set to grow.

Stamford is one of the clubs which will be holding bridge and minibridge sessions over the summer holidays. See here for more details of the other sessions which are taking place.
