Club Teams Competition 2nd March 2017

The  Teams Match will be run as two separate and near identical competitions ( Seniors and Intermediates) with 14 tables in each section playing head to head matches.  ( 4 boards in the seniors and 3 boards in the Intermediates)

You are asked to assemble your team at the allocated table,  then there will be a draw for tables at 7:15pm.  Playing cards will be issued telling the team where to move.  ( 4 teams will be exempt as they need to sit i.e.  table 1 and 4 in each section.

After the draw and players reposition at the new "HOME" tables they enter the Bridgemate Numbers and  then East West of each team will move to the Opposition table by adding or subtracting 7 to their number  eg: 

East/West  table 1 move to table 8.  And East West table 8 move to table 1.

East/West  table 2 move to table 9.  And East West table 9 move to table 2.

The  North/South/East/West of  teams  8 to 14 in each section will be moving for the night.

Memo:  the seniors will be playing 4 board matches (28 boards in all) and its important to minimise the comparison times otherwise we loose a round.

The following is the assembly table for each team.  ( will be published Tuesday)

MEMO:   If someone in your team can not play...please let us know we have some reserves waiting to play.   It is essential to have 14 full tables on each side to make the head to head matches work  ( Phone 085 8862241)

Tips for entering cards onto Bridgemates
  1. Remember that 95% of table problems can be eliminated if South ensures that they play the South cards and return their cards to the South position
  2. Treat Bridgemate like a calculator or mobile phone,  there is a button for every  card.  The zero button on the bottom line acts for the ten.
  3. When the “Record the Cards” message appears immediately press OK button, if it’s not  pressed within 15 seconds you will loose the opportunity to record the hand. 
  4. All players should divide their cards into the 4 suits on the table.  Don’t put them in sequence  (the Bridgemate will take any sequence)
  5. Call out the cards slowly and distinctly in suit seniority (starting with Spades, Hearts, Diamonds etc).   Press the OK button after each suit.
