The Hambleden Bridge Club is a novice-friendly club. We normally play in the Hambleden village hall in the centre of the village. Please park in the free car park just past the Stag and Huntsman or on one of the side streets leaving the centre of the village open for emergency vehicles and customers of the village shop. There is a separate toilet for the disabled but access to the hall remains difficult for those in wheelchairs. Occasionally we release our booking of the village hall for special village events or filming and play at an alternative venue in Lane End if available.
Our normal format is match-pointed pairs with a tea-break playing 24 boards. Please be seated by 1.20pm. Allowed conventions are based on EBU level 2 as used for the Berks and Bucks Friendly pairs events but extended to allow any defence to a 1NT opening. The club's rules regarding behaviour, convention cards and the limitations on systems are available through the left hand menu under 'Club Rules'.
We are affiliated to the EBU thru the Berks & Bucks CBA. The club is also a member of Chiltern Bridge League which allows members to compete in local district league events. Most of our TDs are EBU trained and they act as hosts to ensure all other members can play. Our boards are computer dealt using the club's own dealing machine. Hand records are available at the end of the session.
As an ongoing charitable activity the club pays the tuition and boarding fees for one young Masai girl in Tanzania.
Congratulations to Anne Rayner winning the Savill Cup with 84 pts. Ian Hodkinson was runner-up with 82.
