Wiltshire league results
Wiltshire league results

We've been a bit depleted at Bath BC on Wiltshire League matchdays, especially on Premier League nights, but that's reflected in the fact that Bath BC players feature in all the top 5 (out of 13) PL teams as well as in the 1st and 3rd placed (out of 7) League 2 teams.

Well done to you all, but especially to members of the Williamson and Bridge teams, winners of the PL and League 2 respectively. Details of the teams and the final scores are available via the WCBA website (click here).

Congratulations ...
Congratulations ...

... to Trevor Purches, Susie Gall, Roger Bendall and Richard Moore, who have just won the Wiltshire Knock-out.

In a close final, the Purches team clawed their way back from a 17-IMP deficit to beat the Hodgson team (Keith Williamson, Bob Bannister, Alan White, Tony Olech and Katharine Hodgson) by 6 IMPS.

Play & Learn Spring/Summer Programme

Following a good response the Play & Learn sessions will continue after Easter. They are aimed at those who don't feel quite ready to play Social Duplicate unassisted and are who looking for some tuition as well as assisted play. 

Each session will have a theme, and will take the form of a short teaching slot followed by assisted play of a mix of hands based around the theme. The sessions will be run by Bath BC Chairman Trevor Purches.

  • Monday 28th April   Strong balanced hands
  • Monday 12th May    Signals & discards
  • Monday 26th May    No Session - Bank holiday
  • Monday 9th Jun      Scoring: compete, double or pass and those funny rules
  • ​Monday 23rd Jun    Declarer play
  • Monday 7th Jul       Stayman & transfers

Sessions start at 1.30 and will finish by 4.30. The cost will be £8 per person per session.

All sessions will be at Bath BC – upstairs through the black 'Board Room' door  next to the office near the centre of the main stand.

All welcome. For details contact Trevor Purches tel 01225 866591 email trevor.purches@gmail.com

   The Chris Dixon workshop originally scheduled for 15th May will now be held on Thursday 29th May.   

Macmillan Charity Sim Pairs

Because of closed roads and the Wilts Premier League, we only managed 7 tables for the Sims on Thursday 20th, but we still managed to raise £96 for Macmillan Cancer Support. Many thanks to all who contributed.
