SUMMER BRIDGE for NEW PLAYERS

The club is running a number of tournaments suitable for players attending classes or those who want to gain experience of playing in a tournament.

Tuesdays at 13:30 from 18 April 

There will be approximately 20 computer dealt boards which will be, on average, more balanced than a random computer deal.

There will be 12 pre-dealt boards which will allow revision of topics covered in Lessons 1-40. There will be a hand-out with suggestions for bidding and play

The Tuesday events cost £4 per person and there are chocolate prizes (but if the numbers increase to 8 or more tables then cash prizes will be awarded)

Wednesday at 13:30 from 26 April with Elizabeth Peckham

 There will be a tournament suitable for those players who have completed the two year bridge course

Wednesday Afternoon with Ian Macauley

There is also a regular Wednesday afternoon tournament suitable for newer players. This costs £3.50 for club members and £5 otherwise. Master points are awarded and there are generous cash prizes

No partner is needed for any of these tournaments
