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.
Perhaps you are new to the Bridge club or a regular member whose partner is unavailable one evening. What to do? If it is our Thursday or Saturday evening session there should be no problem as we run a host system and if you come along to the session, preferably a few minutes earlier, we should be able to arrange a partner. For other sessions there are people who may be able to help you find a partner.

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".
Next Thursday (March 28) is Random Teams. Have you signed the list yet? To ensure inclusion please sign before Tuesday (March 26). All welcome.
Next lesson on Friday, April 12 at 7.00pm. Topics:-

The next round of the very popular Snakes and Ladders takes place on Thursday, May 9. This is the event where players of all abilities in the club compete together in a mini Swiss tournament which usually has 13-17 tables. To avoid a half table you MUST sign in advance so please check that you are signed up by May 7.
Three of our current competitions have recently had the scores updated. Under the competions section on the left you can see the updated scores from our annual Ladder competition. There are still three months to go but Liz Senior and Chris Bury currently head the list.
The next table down is labelled S&L and tabulates the scores from our Snakes and Ladders competition. This table matches pairs against their own NGS scores which gives a different set of results to those gained on the night and means players are competing against their own norms. Players are awarded a bonus ten points for attending which is adjusted in a very few cases to ensure no pair score greater than 20 nor less than zero on any evening. Currently that list is headed by Richard Wilson.
The third table shows the current state in our annual Random Teams competition with Mike Palmer and Brian Gillbanks currently heading this list.
It is reassuring to see different names on every list.
This event is now fully subscribed with all 160 places taken which is a fantastic reflection on the hard work of the organizers.. However, with such large number it is almost certain that places may become available between now and May, or even on the day. If you wish to be included on a waitlist please contact Thea or Mary.

We have very close links with the school and the committee have decided that we should make a donation to the cause below. We are aware that some members are also contributing privately. Please read below and click here if you feel that you would like to contribute.
Hello my name is Eleanor Lowes and I am a student at Bishop Luffa Sixth Form. I am part of the Bar Mock Trial team at my Sixth Form along with 14 other pupils. We previously won the regional heat in Guildford in November and have been invited to represent the South East of England at the national finals in Edinburgh in late March. The Bar National Mock competition aims to give young people an insight into the workings of the British legal system, involving over 2000 students, 200 barristers/advocates and around 90 judges from all over England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The competition is run by the Young Citizens charity, who give pupils such as myself an opportunity to learn more about law, including learning about the individual roles in court, which provides students a valuable experience.
We are very excited for this trip, however the cost of attending is quite large. We are aiming to fundraise a sum of £4500 to cover the cost of transport and accommodation for all 15 students on the team. As this is a large amount we would appreciate it if you would consider donating to our GoFundMe page in order to help the team get to Edinburgh for the national finals.

No Fear Duplicate Bridge is a fun and friendly session for new and relatively new duplicate players run by Leigh Harding on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month.

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.
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.
Bridgemates are a great success but they need setting up each evening with information on the number of players and players EBU numbers. Please arrange to be at the Club ten minutes before play starts so that the information can be put in the computer before play at 7 pm or 3.30pm or as appropriate.
