We still have two unclaimed pairs of glasses and an umbrella at the club. Maybe they're yours?

Which systems & conventions can I use?
Which systems & conventions can I use?

As we're an EBU club, we use the EBU Blue Book to determine which bidding systems and conventions we are permitted to use.

For most of our sessions, we comply with Level 4, which allows most systems/conventions that most players are likely to be familiar with.

For our Thursday morning Gentle Duplicate and Monday evening Assisted Play, however, we are limited to Level 2, which limits players to fairly simply bidding systems and common conventions: Stayman, transfers and Blackwood are all fine.

If you're not sure about the suitability of any parts of your system, ask any experienced Club Director for guidance. Alternatively, click here for a link to the Blue Book on the EBU website.


What to do if this issue comes up at the table? See our guidance in Doing things right ... (you can find this via Articles in the menu, left).

Monday evening assisted play

This new learning session is designed for those who need assistance with their bidding and play but want to play real bridge with real hands. Every Monday, we play 14 hands of 'proper' duplicate bridge, but with an EBU-qualified teacher on hand to advise and assist. The hands are taken from a recent session at Bath BC and participants can compare their results with those of more experienced club players.

These are lively, friendly and (we hope) enlightening sessions, and current participants range from learners who have never played duplicate before to improvers wanting to build up their confidence before taking off their armbands. If you'd like to give it a try, come along – you're welcome with or without a partner.

What level is right for me?


With the growing choice of daytime and evening sessions now available at Bath BC, newer members and visitors may not be sure which options best suit their level of ability and experience.

If you're in doubt, click here to consult our Guide to levels. (It's also available via the menu, left.)

And, of course, feel free to consult any committee member if you need further advice.
