LEARN TO PLAY BRIDGE QUICKLY IN 2018

Whether you are on your own or come along with friends, we will make you feel very welcome at our classes. 

Fast track bridge is aimed at beginners who would like to learn quickly, in eight consecutive weeks.  You will be playing hands every week on what you are learning.

We have other classes too for 2nd years and Consolidate your Basics - see the lessons and teachers tab on the left hand side.

SBBC are hosting EBED'S Club Director Training Course

How to Run a Club Duplicate

Wednesday May 2nd: This course is an introduction and ice breaker for those who might still be thinking whether becoming a director at their local club is something suitable for them. The course introduces delegates to the skills which a good director will need and the organisational aspects of running a club session - eg movements, scoring, technology, etc. The course would also be suitable for individuals who just wish to help out at their clubs as scorers or "session managers". The session can be run as a stand alone event or in advance of the main 3 day training course

Club Director training course

This course focuses on both "Book" and "Judgement" rulings which have to be given by a director at the typical club level.

Wednesday May 9th - Day 1 : Revokes, penalty cards, Opening Lead out of turn, Claims
Wednesday May 16th - Day 2 : Insufficient Bids, Calls out of turn, Unauthorised Information/Misinformation
Wednesday May 23rd - Day 3 : Assessment

For course bookings, fees, payments and further information please contact EBED.

   Swiss Pairs - March 18th - 2.pm start

Swiss pairs are a relaxing change from ordinary pairs, and with a sandwich tea included make an enjoyable way to spend a Sunday.

Advance booking is essential - cost £15 (see entry form in LH column)

Disabled Parking

We are receiving an increasing number of complaints from blue badge holders that they cannot park in the disabled car parking spaces and there seem to be cars parked there without badges. 

If you do hold a blue badge then please display it. If however you have been parking there for convenience please use the car parking spaces provided behind the building or alternatively on a very busy day it is acceptable to park carefully on the drive. 

Thank you for your cooperation.

Smoking & Parking

Would all smokers please show consideration to other bridge players by smoking in the designated area out through the bar door at the back of the barn.

Car parking in the courtyard is strictly for residents, disabled drivers and the management.  There is ample parking in the rear car parks which are patrolled by the security guard between 1900 and 2300 hrs.  On exceptionally busy days parking is allowed on the road leading to the car parks.

Your co-operation is much appreciated. 

Please arrive in good time

Try to arrive 10 minutes before the starting time for any bridge session.

If you might be late phone 01628 668700 to notify the Director, or contact your partner.

It is very unhelpful and impolite to the Director, your partner and the other players to be late

If you are late, without having notified the Club, you might not be allowed to play.  This is especially important for the larger sessions where table numbering and movement might need to be changed according to the number of tables in play.

Play it Again and Results Analysis

Our Bridgewebs web site makes "Play it Again" facilities available for any hand which has been played at a Club pairs event.  It also can show detailed Results Analysis for any player in an event.
