Play & Explore

Overview

Our Play & Explore holidays are perfect for the bridge player who likes to combine exploring new places with more relaxed evening bridge. During the day, we will visit local areas of interest which can include coach excursions accompanied by a local expert, walks led by your bridge host, or journeys by local transport. More information regarding the excursions will be included with each holiday. We aim to use, where possible, smaller boutique hotels and keep the table numbers lower to enable you to get to know your fellow guests. For holidays with 10 or more tables, we guarantee no half table. The evening bridge will be predominantly pairs, with team events if numbers are sufficient. Masterpoints will be awarded.  

Your holiday will also include interactive bridge seminars where you will play hands on the topic. This type of bridge holiday will suit players who are newer to the game and wish to improve their bridge, but also regular players who are simply looking for a holiday with other activities and more relaxed bridge sessions.
