Welcome to Bury Athenaeum Bridge Club
Welcome to the Bury Athenaeum Bridge Club Website
Welcome to the Bury Athenaeum Bridge Club Website

Bury Athenaeum Bridge Club is a great place to come and play bridge with a friendly atmosphere and games to suit all standards of player. The club operates a host system at most events with visitors most welcome with or without a partner. The club is affiliated to the EBU and Master Points are awarded at all duplicate events.

Monday night and Wednesday morning is for 'Assisted' play where relatively inexperienced players can play in a light hearted event, supported by experienced members willing to provide guidance on bidding and play. An ideal environment for improvers or inexperienced players as play is based on simple ACOL. Wednesday evenings are a simple systems only event, ideal for beginners.  Monday & Wednesday afternoons are very popular with those members & visitors who prefer not to venture out on winter evenings. Tuesday & Thursday evening are  popular club nights with Friday tending to have a party atmosphere with free refreshments available. Click here for full details of events & times

Behaviour and Etiquette

Behaviour and Etiquette

You should be polite and courteous at all times. It is improper to use facial expressions or intonation to indicate to partner what you would like to do.

Use only the proper language of bridge and try to make all your bids at the same pace. You may have a bidding problem and you are permitted to take time to think, but do not take an eternity. Try to play your cards at a uniform pace. It is improper to play a singleton with undue emphasis. Do not hesitate with the intention of deceiving declarer.

You are not permitted to try to mislead your opponents by your manner, behaviour or remarks. It is considered impertinent and bad manners to give unsolicited advice to opponents or criticise your partner. Better to say too little rather than too much.

There are occasions when we wish to discuss hands we have just played with partner. It is rude to opponents to delay play of the following hand. It can and does convey information to players at other tables who have yet to play the hand. For the movement to run smoothly, there should be as little delay as possible between hands and when moving from one table to the next. .
