We're delighted to have been invited by the EBU to be a venue for a nationwide event forming part of their Summer Festival.
‘Play with the Experts’
A pairs event, with teams-style scoring
Monday 6th August @ Bath Bridge Club
At the the end of the evening all N/S pairs will ‘score up’ using the scorecard of a pair of experts who previously played the E/W cards. The E/W pairs will score up with the ‘expert’ N/S pair. The pair who finish furthest ahead of the average score of those sitting in their direction will win.
Please arrive by 7.00 pm for a 7.15 start
£7 for club members, £8 for visitors, £4 for juniors
The same hands will be played at various venues around the country, with prizes and Master Points based on the national results.
We look forward to seeing you there.

Bath Bridge Club has again risen sharply in the EBU's list of 'Top Clubs by Players'. Last year we jumped into the top 50 at position no 39, and this year we have risen a further 12 places to become the 27th most popular bridge club in England. Congratulations and thanks to all who give of their time to make our club a continuing success. Onwards and upwards!
Not sure how to change a wrong score? how to assign a 60/40% percentage score? how to arrow-switch a score?
Problem solved. We're starting a regular drop-in Scoring Clinic at the club, so if there's anything you're not sure about, come along. Clinics will run 6.00-6.45 once a month on varying weekdays.
Thanks to Trevor for running our first session, in June. The next clinic will be on Thursday 5 July.
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).
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.
