Players of the Month - August 2018

Congratulations to the winners of this month's Player of the Month competition, Brian Smith is overall winner with an average score of 60.95%, very well done. The prize for the "best regular" member goes to Steve Waterworth with an average score of 53.36% and our award for the "Level 8 & Under" Player of the Month goes to founder member Gordon Southgate with 54.08% Well played to all....please see David for your prizes

We have set the limit for players eligible for this award by using the EBU's National grading system - all members of Grade 8 and under qualify - bear in mind that players' grades can go up & down during a month, so we are taking the ranking on the last day of the month as the member's official grade for that month. 

If you do not know your NGS rating - you can find it on the EBU website in the "NGS" section. Type your surname in the search box once you get to the page & it should appear. Players that are ungraded or suppress their rating won't be included in the monthly competition although will still qualify for the main player of the month. If you can't find it, we have a list of all registered members' ratings - just email and I will find it for you.

Good Luck & enjoy your bridge in 2018 !


Welcome to Aces Bridge Club

We have decided to run these competitions as One Day Events as it was becoming increasingly difficult to arrange matches with people playing different days/weeks to their opponents and often with so many other commitments to fulfil...I believe that we only received 9 entries for one of the comps, so this way many more people will be in with a chance to win the trophies. We will play for the Sally Venner Salver on Monday 24th September and the Mike de Winter Trophy on Wednesday 26th September. Only club members are eligible to win the trophies/prizes but all are welcome to participate in the sessions. Good luck to all

Player of the Month

Player of the Month

You will have seen the player of the month section in our "Competitions". It is automatically updated each time a session is added by the scorer.

The rules have been simplified - you no longer have to play with different partners, it is worked out on the average percentage achieved & you must play a minimum of 4 sessions ( 5 if there happen to be 5 Mondays or Wednesdays in the month)

NEW - For players that attend every session in a calendar month - there will be a special prize of a free session in the following month for the person with the best percentage. Also there is a prize for the best performance from the players rated NGS 8 or below. 

So, keep an eye on your position in the table. Winners of these 3 prizes will be announced on the website & prizes presented on 1st session of the following month, when it all starts off again

There will also be a special prize for the overall Player of the Year - this is awarded on placing points rather than percentage...8 points for a win, 7 for second place etc
