A Brief History Of Benllech Bridge Club

A Bridge Club had been in existence in Benllech for many years. It was a very social environment and players met in a variety of venues.

In 1993, some players decided to find a suitable venue and create a club affiliated to the WBU. The modern library in the village seemed ideal and the players settled in very quickly.

In 2009 we were informed that the Ex-Servicemen’s club had become available on Friday nights and, whereas we were sorry to leave our original venue, the hall offered more hours for our weekly duplimate. This, too, was a modern building, with disabled access and all the facilities required. So the club moved. We have settled down very quickly and hope to see a club there for many years to come.
