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
Pat Chitty

It is with sadness and regret that we report the death of Pat Chitty on February 3.   Pat had been a long term member of the club.   The funeral will be at Chichester Crematorium on February 22 at 2.45pm and afterwards upstairs at the Minerva theatre.   Any enquiries can be made to Reynolds at Bognor on 01243 864745.

League Success

With no team in the Arun league this year some of our members formed a team and joined the Sussex league which covers both East and West Sussex.   

Since this is their first season they were entered in Division 6 but the Sussex league is competitive in every division. 

I am delighted to report that Thea Sydenham, Richard Wilson, Prue Davies, Chris Coote, Mike Palmer and Brian Gillbanks in their first season have already gained immediate promotion to division 5, even though they still have one match to play.  Well done to all of them!

Annual General Meeting

The AGM of Chichester Bridge Club will be held on Tuesday, March 20 at 7.00pm.    We would encourage all members to mark this date in your diary.   All members are welcome to attend from 6.30pm when nibbles and drinks will be available.

NO FEAR DUPLICATE BRIDGE

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. It provides an opportunity to gain experience in playing in duplicate events and has proved to be a popular event for inexperienced players.  Students in year 2 and above are welcome to join in the duplicate session or if preferred can join the separate practice tables (booking for practice tables essential – click on following link for further information and booking details: 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.
