Afternoon Bridge

Tuesday afternoon sessions are on everyTuesday.   Sandra Ward-Brown is happy to accept phone calls (01243 681788) to try and help people looking to pair up for a session.  Please arrive at the club between 1.30pm and 2.00pm for these sessions.

Random Seeded Teams

This competition will take place on the fourth Thursday of each month from October to June.   In December, the proximity of the fourth Thursday to Christmas day may mean the bridge club is closed and the competition will not run that month.   It is proving very popular but for administration purposes and to ensure we do not end up with an odd number of pairs you must sign on the notice board to indicate you wish to take part by the Monday preceding the event.  The current scores can be seen under the "Competition" menu and "Random Seeded Teams Points".

 
Welcome to Chichester Bridge Club
Random Teams

The Random Teams Event on November 23 will start at 7.30pm instead of the usual 7.00pm.  There is a parent interview session at the school and there may still be several cars in the playground between 6.30pm and 7.00pm but it should be less busy between 7.00pm and 7.15pm.  This is for this month only.

Regular attendees of this event may care to note that in December it will happen on the THIRD Thursday, December 21 as there is unlikely to be much interest during the Christmas break.

Christmas Party

There is a list in the club to enable you to sign up for this year's Christmas party on Wednesday, December 6.   You will also find posters detailing the evening in the club room.  There will be a raffle with all proceeds given to charity.  This year we have chosen St. Wilfred's Dream Building.    Please donate prizes for the raffle.  These can be brought to the club at any time but nearer the event would be most helpful.   

The size of the room limits us to 80 people and the first 80 signed up on the list will be welcome.  Until the end of October only members can sign the list.  After that date the list is open to members and student members.  This is always a fun evening and we hope you can attend.

Events in October

October sees the re-start of the Ladder and the Random Seeded Teams.  These are the major competitions held at the club.  The Ladder is a Pairs competition  held on the 3rd Monday of the month from October to June with the best 6 of 9 potential scores counting.   The Random Seeded Teams, despite its name, is an individual competition played as a a teams event and is held on the 4th Thursday of the month for the same months as the Ladder with the same best 6 of 9 scores counting.  Cliff Vince scores the Ladder and David Telfer scores the Random Seeded Teams.  In order to ensure we have an even number of pairs for the Random Seeded Teams you must sign up in advance at least three days before the event.   Both these competitions have given much pleasure in the past and you are cordially invited to take part in both.  Ladder Starts October 16 and Random Seeded Teams on October 26.

NO FEAR DUPLICATE BRIDGE HAS STARTED

This new session especially for students and newcomers to duplicate bridge is on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month 2.00pm - 4.30pm .  We are delighted that the first session was a big success with 7 and a half tables.   With a comprehensive teaching programme and sessions catering to all abilities there are now sessions available at the club for bridge players of all abilities and beginners.   Friday "No Fear" sessions will be directed by Leigh Harding and suitable for Year 2 and 3 students and anyone new to duplicate bridge. No partner is required for this session.  Full details here  http://www.nofearbridge.co.uk/chichesterbc.html

 

Which Session?

The bridge sessions at Chichester club are diverse and hopefully cater to the desires of all our members.

Monday and Thursday evenings are our strongest sessions. 27 boards played.  No partner is needed on a Thursday except the 4th Thursday in the month (see below).

The fourth Thursday each month is a Teams session for players of all abilities.  Top pairs are randomly paired with less experienced pairs to give an interesting evening.  However, for this session you must sign up in advance on the sheet in the clubroom.

Saturday evenings and Tuesday afternoons are more relaxed and 24 boards played.

New bi monthly ‘No Fear Duplicate Bridge’ Friday session started Jan 2017. This session is for students and newcomers to duplicate bridge and we initially expect to play only 15-18 boards.  No partner needed for these sessions.

All our sessions are open to all members. Those who are new to bridge or less experienced will probably want to start with the Friday, Saturday or Tuesday session. Visitors new to the club are welcome to trial each session until they find the session(s) most appropriate or exceed six attendances, at which point they would be invited to join.  Though the bridge standard varies enormously dependent on the session chosen, we want all members to enjoy their bridge and we expect all members to adhere to Best Behaviour at Bridge at every session.
