Welcome to Beckenham Bridge Club
 
 
  Welcome to Beckenham Bridge Club
Welcome to Beckenham Bridge Club
Beckenham Bridge Club meets on Mondays and Wednesdays at the Public Halls, Bromley Road, Beckenham BR3 5JE.

There is wheelchair access and a lift. Parking is available in adjacent streets and there is a car park in St George's Road.

We operate a host system and aim to find visitors a partner, though to avoid disappointment it is advisable to contact a committee member.

Players are asked to be seated by 7.25 pm so that play can commence promptly at 7.30 pm and end at 10.30 pm.

Table money - which includes tea, coffee, cold drinks and biscuits, is £3.00 for members, students £2.00, visitors £4.00

Membership fees are £12 per annum.

  Handicapped results

HANDICAPS

A new Handicapped Variety Pairs competition started in January 2017. We hope this will encourage members to play with a wider variety of partners in this popular competition.  The Handicapped Ladder continues in parallel with the main ladder. In both handicapped competitions, the points are awarded as in the normal competition, but using the handicapped result.

Handicaps are calculated from the gradings of the players on the English Bridge Union National Grading Scheme (NGS).  In order to have a handicap, each player must be on the club database and have an NGS grade.  The handicap is 50 minus the average of the NGS grades of the pair and the original percentage is modified by this amount.  From now on, the results of all pairs events will include the handicapped scores.  

The handicapped scores may be accessed from the "Handicap” button when calling up a result on the web.  The handicapped results will also be printed out at the end of each session.  The intention is to give everyone an equal chance based on their results in the recent past.  The clearest beneficiaries will be the players whose bridge skills are increasing.  It is hoped that improvers will be encouraged by this to enter more competitions and to reap success.
