Welcome to the Frome Bridge Club web site. The club is affiliated to the EBU and aims to provide friendy but competitive duplicate bridge for members and visitors.
Boards are electronically duplimated and Bridgemate scoring is used meaning that results are available as soon as the last board is completed.
Frome is a pleasant Somerset market town and is situated 12 miles South of Bath.
The club meets every Monday at 7.00pm in Wesley Methodist Church at Wesley Slope, Frome.
In addition, we provide lessons followed by assisted play on Thursday mornings from 9.30 to noon.
For further details contact: John Perry on 01373 467508.
Master Points(MP) and the Ranking system
After each Monday session the results for the evening are uploaded to the EBU.
The EBU allocates MPs to each player in the top ranks for that evening
depending on the number of tables in play.
For example, on Monday 3rd Sept. there were 8 tables so MPs were awarded
to the top three pairs for both N/S and E/W.
The ranks start with:
Local Master 100 MPs
Club Master 200 MPs
Area Master 500 MPs
District Master 1000 MPs
County Master 2500 MPs
Master 5000 MPs
and then upward
Unless dummy has left the table, declarer should never touch dummy’s cards, even to rearrange them.
This avoids arguments about whether a card has been played or not.
End of Season Round Up
The season is now over so we can look back on the fortunes of our two teams.
Our team in the 4th Division has been in great form throughout the season. They won all of their seven matches and sit proudly at the top of the table. Well deserved promotion to the third division now beckons.
In the 1st Division, our team has had mixed fortunes.They won four matches and lost four matches. It means they finished in a comfortable mid-table position ready to do battle at the highest level once again next year
Our thanks and congratulations go to all those who have represented the club in the County League.
