When she retired as Infants Mistress at Parkes Public School in 1981, Val Worthington and three friends decided to learn the game of bridge. They purchased a learner's guide and were soon enjoying a weekly game. Other friends joined in and social bridge afternoons were held in private homes around the district. Val did much of the tutoring of the newcomers.

Val was present at the meeting in 1993 when Parkes Bridge Club was officially formed and registered with NSW Bridge Association. She has continued to teach the game to beginners in all the years that have followed.

Now at the good age of 96 Val still plays competitively every week.

The Parkes Bridge Club plays three times a week at the Lutheran Church Hall.
