Coming up Grenfell Fire Appeal Sim Pairs
Coming up  Grenfell Fire Appeal Sim Pairs

We're playing an extra Simultaneous Pairs on Thursday 10th August, in aid of the Evening Standard Disposessed Fund: Grenfell Tower Fire. All members are welcome to attend. Table money will be £5, of which £2 (plus any further donations) will go to the appeal fund.

Please note that to allow as many clubs as possible to take part, this Sim Pairs is running from Sunday 6th August until Saturday 12th August, using the same set of hands. If you have already played in a Grenfell Fire Sims that week, please do not therefore attend the Bath BC event as well!

We look forward to seeing you there.

Congratulations too to Diane Bishop and John Treble, who just beat Trevor Purches & Susie Gall to the top spot with 62.4%.

Coming up: regular Teams evenings
Coming up: regular Teams evenings

Following a great turnout for our Chairman's Cup teams event in May, which included a broad spectrum of members representing all our weekly sessions, we've decided to offer a teams evening on a more regular basis. 

To minimise disruption to members' regular partnership arrangements, we'll be playing teams on the 5th Tuesday or 5th Thursday of months in which either occur. The first of these will be Thursday 31 August, followed by Tuesday 31 October and Thursday 30 November.

We'd like to emphasise that all members are welcome at these teams evenings. If you'd like to know more about playing teams, please contact any committee member. You may be interested to know that our county, Wiltshire, has a thriving three-division teams league in which many Bath players already participate. The closing date for the upcoming season is 30 June. Again, for more information ask a committee member.

Table money held at 3 till September
Table money held at 3 till September

We're pleased to announce that we have been able to postpone the rise in table money agreed at this year's AGM until September: members will continue to pay £3 per session (and non-members £4).

The new rate (£4 for members, £5 for non-members) will come into effect on Tuesday 5 September. Full-time students will continue to pay only £1 per session.


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.
