Random Seeded Teams

This competition will take place on the fourth Thursday of each month except December.   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".

 
Arun League

Last week we had our penultimate Arun bridge league match of the season against Bognor.  In a closely fought match Bognor played well and deservedly won by 14 imps to set up the closest finish to the league for some years.   Bognor and Chichester have both lost two matches and West Worthing have lost just one as we enter the final round matches next month and all three teams can end up as winners.

Andrew Robson at Chichester Bridge Club

On 20 January 2017 Chichester Bridge Club hosted a seminar by Andrew Robson attended by 80 members and students.  Andrew’s teaching methods are well-known, and on this, is fourth visit to the club, he again led an exciting and absorbing session on “suit Establishment in Trump Contracts”, “Which Card to Lead”, and” Double – the most underused Call in Bridge”.  Andrew has a unique style of teaching and an amazing ability to engage people with different skill levels at the same time.  Although this seminar was aimed primarily at the middle-ranking player, all those who attended gained from it.  To quote one of our top players: “you always learn something”.  One of our students wrote to say that she “had found him as good, entertaining and excellent as everyone had said”.

If you missed the seminar this time, look out for the next occasion.  No doubt Andrew Robson will be invited to Chichester Bridge Club again!

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. 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

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.

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. 

Ladder

The calendar has been published up to and including April 2017.  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.
