Cold weather arrangements

If the weather becomes wintry, the decision to run or cancel a session or lesson will rest with the director or teacher of that session/lesson, usually after consultation with Denis or Pearl Murphy. The status of sessions affected will be updated on the website as promptly as possible, but if you need any further information at the time please contact Denis on 07802 804408 or Pearl on 07850 169660.

Wimpenny Trophy

Congratulations to the team of Alan Aizlewood, Colin Stephenson, Viven Aizlewood and Elizabeth Jobes. who were clear winners of the Wimpenny Trophy

Bill Gibson Trophy

This event is played over the Winter months on four different Mondays. Although these are normal Monday aggregate evenings, and count towards the Monday ladder competition, to win the trophy you count the three best results from the four rounds, playing with a different partner each time. The second round is on December 10th, with subsequent rounds on January 21st and February 25th.

Club Christmas Party
Club Christmas Party

Open to all club members, the Christmas Party will be held on:

Saturday 8th December at 6:30 p.m.

£6 for food, drink and bridge

Contact Margaret Fleetwood or Pam Cooper to book your place, or sign up on the list on the club noticeboard.

Friday night is Teams night (from May)

From the beginning of May, every Friday will be a teams duplicate, instead of the previous twice a month. In addition to the normal sign-up page on the club noticeboard we will be instigating a system whereby people can seek partners or pairs can seek team mates, for the purpose of putting teams together. At present we are making these changes for a trial period. We will inform members of progress on this news page.

Start and Finish Times

The Committee, in consultation with the Tournament Directors, have agreed that evening sessions will continue to start promptly at 19.00 and, as far as possible, will end by 22.30. Based on the number of pairs, the TDs will choose a movement to allow this 22.30 finish and will manage the movement accordingly, including reducing the length of the break if need be.

The TD may also remove a board if a table has fallen behind. Persistently slow pairs will be warned in the first instance and may then be subject to a procedural penalty.

To help the TD to achieve this, pairs are asked to be at the table and ready to play by 18.55 at the latest. All pairs are expected to stay until the end of the session (unless sitting out the last round)

Any queries or comments please speak to a member of the Committee

Maintenance Book

A Maintenance Book has been placed on the Noticeboard in the hallway of number  4. When any work on the Bridge Club property is required please make a note of the job in the book and add your name so the Maintenance Group can come back to you with any queries.

Email contact

There is an email form on the Contact Us section under Information but the club can also be contacted directly by emailing (note that this email address is not monitored constantly)
