About Pollensa

Pollensa – also known as Pollença – in the north of the island of Majorca is an ancient town of attractive narrow streets and an impressive main square, lined with cafés, restaurants and bars, and is just a few kilometres from Port de Pollensa.

Having been conquered time and time again through the centuries, the town bears signs of a rich history. More recently, in the early part of the last century a colony of artists, writers and musicians discovered the inspiring beauty of the area, settling in, and Pollensa has been a major draw for tasteful visitors ever since.

The town has several places of interest to visit, including the Roman bridge, signposted ‘Pont Roma’, which is still in use, and the Puig de Pollensa – a small mountain topped by a monastery, just outside the town. Here we provide all the information you want to know to make the most of this relaxed yet culturally satisfying inland town.

About Port de Pollensa

Due to prohibitive building regulations on the island, there is rarely a high-rise block in sight; just long swathes of sandy beach, lined by pine and palm trees and a splendid array of cafes and restaurants. Once a simple fishing port, the town is now very attractive resort.

 

Majorca Bridge

Throughout the week, Bernard Magee and his team will offer a full bridge programme, including two bridge seminars followed by the opportunity to play set hands with the assistance of the experienced team, all played in a friendly atmosphere.

If you are a single bridge player please do not worry about being on your own. We will always be able to find you a partner and you can always have a game. As well as there being other singles in the same situation as yourself, there is the Mr Bridge team who will be happy to partner you if required.

Programme to follow . . .

Will Parsons

Will Parsons

Will Parsons is married to Sylvia and they have three grown up children and six little grandchildren. He has been playing bridge with steadily increasing enthusiasm for about 16 years, mainly at good club level, and he is currently Chairman of Droitwich Bridge Club. He finally retired from his job as a Purchasing consultant and trainer in 2012 after running down his involvement over the previous 5 years. However, that work had given him substantial experience in training, and he spoke at a number of purchasing conferences all over the world.

Will & Sylvia started coming on Mr Bridge holidays and weekends in early 2008 and soon became hooked. They both joined Mr Bridge as helpers after Will qualified as an EBU club tournament director in 2011. Will & Sylvia both really enjoy playing with different clients and encouraging improving players to increase in confidence and learn to love the game. 

Outside bridge they enjoy good food, walking and reading.
