ECBA Friendly League Rules

  1. For the 2016 season, all matches will be played at Barleylands, with the exception of the Hutton and Thorpe Bay home matches. The Party Night will be at Barleylands for all clubs.
  2. For matches played at Barleylands, teams should assemble at 19:15 for a 19:30 start. Table money is 2 per player (1.50 to Bernie, 50p to be retained for Party Night).
  3. The movement will be Terry Wise's development of the standard 'Circulation' movement for four teams of four, ensuring that each pair from each team plays six boards against each of the four pairs from the opposing team.
  4. The scoring will be by IMPs, aggregated and converted to VPs.
  5. There are currently issues with the automated scoring of Teams of Eight matches, in particular with the interface between Scorebridge / Teamscorer and Bridgewebs. If you have to calculate the scores manually, the methodology is given below.
  6. These results, together with the names of both teams' members, should be sent to Theo Todman, the ECBA Webmaster, who will collate all the results and arrange for their publication on the ECBA website, and also to the League organiser, Graham Foster.
