♠ ♥ ♦ ♣ Players are always welcome to attend sessions without a partner & take "pot luck". If no game available, we will always offer you a free game on your next visit.
There is a list up in the club of people looking for partners for specific sessions, so please add your name if you are interested ♠ ♥ ♦ ♣
Congratulations to David Fairbairn the winner of this month's Player of the Month competition with an average score of 59.01%, very well done. The prize for the "best regular" member goes to Brian Grimwood with an average score of 54.16% and our award for the "Level 8 & Under" Player of the Month goes to joint winners Gordon Southgate & John Read with 54.59% 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and I will find it for you.
Good Luck & enjoy your bridge in 2019 !
We were very pleased to welcome Enza Evans to Aces on Monday 4th February to present the prizes for this year's competition. Congratulations to Mike Penney and Alan Hodkinson who keep the beautiful glass trophy for a year and also receive a memento each.
Congratulations to Barbara Bramidge on winning our Player of the Year competition. Barbara played every time with Paul Whitehurst - apart from once with Keith Gravestock, and that was enough to put her one tiny step in front of Paul...he will have to have a consolation prize as so close !
Steve Waterworth wins the prize for best "regular" - 90 games and best "under 8" prize goes to Steve Crampton
Well done to all

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
