Handicap Tournament and Ladder

The Handicap tournament and the Ladder both start in October.   The Handicap will run on the third Thursday of each month and the Ladder on the third Monday.  Members are welcome and encouraged to compete in both.   The scores for the October round of the Handicap are now posted on the site under Competitions - NGS handicap.    It is pleasing to see Rupert Emerson and Shirley Wright taking an early lead.   The running scores for each competition will be displayed on the website each month.  Any queries with rules, scoring etc please ask Cliff Vince (Ladder) or David Telfer (Handicap)


Chichester Bridge Club is a friendly club which provides duplicate bridge and bridge classes for its members and potential members. New members and visitors are welcome. To get to know the club and its members, visitors may attend up to six bridge sessions per calendar year after which they are requested to apply for membership.

Bridge Teaching by Andrew Robson

Andrew Robson will be teaching on 23rd January 2015. This session is open to both intermediate and advanced players. The session will last from 7-10 pm. If you can sign on the list as a pair that would be very helpful for the organisation. Charge of £10 per person to cover costs.

The club can take a maximum of 18 tables ie 72 players. So there will be a limit on numbers. This sessions is for club members only – we will not be able to accommodate visitors if they are as popular as before

Other sessions which the committee is planning to organise are a Pro-Am session and to set up a Buddy Scheme to support students and intermediate players as they improve. Any advanced players who are interested in supporting this, please contact Michael Cook, who will be organising this. Michael is on 0787 5313365  mcook1158@googlemail.com
