X-IMP scoring is an alternative to the regular Match Point scoring system. For a summary of how it works please click on the X-IMP Scoring tab above.
Welcome to the Colchester Duplicate Bridge Club website. We play at St Johns & Highwoods Community Centre, Colchester (CO4 9SR) every Tuesday evening. Table money is £3 (£4 for visitors) which includes tea/coffee and biscuits. We have a dedicated mobile ( 07423 626 470) that you can call or text if you are unavoidably late or need to cancel at short notice.
Learn and Play Sessions for Improvers. A series of relaxed and friendly seminars and play sessions to improve your bidding and play. Sessions take place on Tuesday evenings at our Highwoods venue from 7pm to 9.30pm.
The 'learning' sessions will include a seminar on some aspect of bidding or play together with lots of practice hands. The 'play' sessions will comprise a 12-16 board duplicate event with a discussion of the hands. There is a nominal charge of £3 per session which includes tea/coffee and biscuits. Please email Peter Bushby email@example.com or Michael Sherer firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend or would like more information.
We now ask players to be seated by 7pm to enable play starts promptly at 7.15pm.
This will enable us to play 26/27 boards and still finish play by 10.30pm.
It takes a few minutes to set up the Bridgemates Scoring Programme and this is delayed if players are not seated by 7pm.
The movement will be based on the players who are seated at 7pm; players arriving after 7pm may not be permitted to play.
We regret that we are not able to operate a host system at the moment. In the meantime, if you are looking for a partner to play at Colchester please use the "Find a Partner" facility (available for Members only - see details below)
Also you can text or call Christine Cooke on 07980 822624
If you are looking for a partner you may telephone Christine Cooke, the Membership Secretary, on 07980 822624 or 07423 626470.

We now allocate seating randomly. Just take a card when you arrive and go to your assigned table. Of course, if you need to be stationary (or to move) for medical reasons, you can have an appropriate seat.
Thank you for your cooperation.
