Trying to find the Minutes of our Meetings? Who is on the Committee? When and where does play start?

Press the information button above for the answer to all of these.

Evening Sessions

Please be sure to arrive at the club at least ten minutes before play begins, that is before 6.50 pm so that play is not delayed. It may not be possible to accommodate latecomers.

MONDAY PARTNERS CONTACT

Our Monday Partners contact is Penny Haines, tel:  01243 372087  or email:  kenandpenny@tiscali.co.uk

Afternoon Bridge

Tuesday afternoon sessions occur on the first and third Tuesday of the month.  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".

 
Tuesday Duplicate

♠   ♣ TUESDAY AFTERNOON BRIDGE EXTENDED ♠   ♣ 

Tuesday afternoon Bridge has proved very popular and the committee has decided to extend the session to run on a WEEKLY basis from May 2017. Many thanks to John Taylor and Neil Goulding, both experienced directors, for making this possible. The new programme will be published in the next few days, so please look out for the new dates.

We urgently need more help with Bridgemates: please speak to Thea or any other Bridgemate operator if you can help. We would be happy to train you!

Session changes due to Easter

It has been noted that the third Monday in April is Easter Monday and for that month only the Ladder competition will take place on the second Monday.  i.e. Ladder in April is on Monday, April 10.

It is also noted that No Fear Duplicate bridge was scheduled for Good Friday, April 14.  This has now been cancelled but Leigh Harding has kindly agreed to run an additional session on April 7 to compensate. 

Beginners Class September 2017

Details on this class is listed under Bridge Lessons on the left of this screen.

Arun League

We have completed our Arun league fixtures this season.  Quite coincidentally we won once and lost once to each of the other teams.  Our sincere thanks to Thea who has arranged fixtures and teams for us.  Thea is now happy to pass the mantle of Arun league organizer to any keen club member.  Please see Thea if you are interested.

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 7.00pm-10.00pm .  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 new bi monthly Tuesday afternoons are more relaxed and 24 boards played.

New bi monthly ‘No Fear Duplicate Bridge’ Friday evening session starts 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. 

New newsletter for students and improving players

Our new student newsletter will keep you up to date with news of all sessions at the club which may be of interest to learners and less experienced players.  If you’d like to receive the newsletter direct to your inbox please register here
