We have a wide range of expertise amongst our players and we encourage a friendly and respectful approach at the table for the enjoyment of all.

In the last few days there has been a problem with Bridgewebs which has apparently been solved.  We were not able to put up tonight's results until much later than usual.  All is well now, and the updated Vincent Gummer results are also available.  

Blue-pointed Swiss Pairs 2019

We are now taking entries for this year's Blue-pointed Swiss Pairs 2019. Full details can be found here where you will also find links to the on-line entry form and the printable entry form. Following last year's success with our 60th Anniversary pairs, we will also be providing an excellent buffet lunch supplied by the caterer who did such a good job with our Sally Brock event last July.  We had a waiting list last year, so enter soon to secure your place.

The Club's Objectives

You can find the club's objectives in the 'Information' section of the menu on the left.  Please note that the current club constitution is also listed there but that document is currently under review and a new constitution will be presented to all members later in the year for discussion and ratification at the AGM in November.

Summer Seminars

Missed Out? You can still catch up…

You may have missed the sparkling repartee but you can still see the presentations from our seminar page.

Chris Green presented a discussion on using clues from the auction in play and defence.
Strong Rebids
Chris Chambers examined the options and problems presented by opening strong hands with a one-bid.
Club Teams News

The Summer League

The Summer League is the county league for clubs. For the first time ever Ipswich and Kesgrave fielded two teams, 'Diamonds' and 'Hearts' in the Suffolk Summer League.

In brief Diamonds won the first division, despite losing to holders Colchester in the last match of the season, and Hearts, in a shortened campaign, had a creditable first showing.
