Welcome to Ashbourne Bridge Club

Our club has a friendly and welcoming membership which we are very proud of.  We play upstairs in the Ashbourne/Donaghmore GAA Club every Tuesday at 7:20 sharp. There is ample free parking. The playing fee is five Euro and the club is open all year round, with visitors welcome from May to August.

New Players warmly welcomed.

The club secretary is Liz, on 086 8251659.

Our email address is AshbourneBridgeClubMeath@gmail.com

 

ASHBOURNE BRIDGE CLUB SUMMER BRIDGE

We would like to give a very warm welcome to our Summer Bridge visitors.

Play starts at 7h20pm sharp and we ask you to arrive early in order to facilitate the work of our Tournament Director. We draw for position at table.

You may know that we host many Novice players every Summer. Their first venture into Club Bridge is very daunting (you remember) and the Club endeavours to make their transition into playing Club Bridge as stress free as possible. We take this very seriously.  We ask our Visitors and Members alike to give every courtesy to these Novice players, the future of Club Bridge, and to give them space to develop their game.

Very important: Novices do not play North / South position during their first year in our Club - please alert the TD if you are a Novice and find yourself in this position. Remember, the pair you are playing may not know you are a Novice nor be aware of this local Club rule.  We especially ask our Visitors and Members to respect this decision.

Novices playing in the Club over the Summer period are welcome to use any quick aids given to them by their teachers. The 'No Fear' Sheet is very useful and is available from the Club Secretary on request.

Welcome once again and enjoy our relaxed Summer Bridge evenings.

Rest in Peace Imelda

Law 66 Inspection of Tricks

Players can now look at, but not expose, the card they played to their last trick, until either

player from their side has played to the next trick.

 


And a gentle reminder to leave the boards uncovered on the table during play - that is to say, not covering the boards with the bidding boxes during play.

The purpose of this is to allow players to see their vulnerability both during bidding and during play. The boards should remain properly orientated.
