Tuesday Ladder Competition

Having discussed the proposal from the AGM that the Tuesday Ladder competion should be a Promotion / Relegation league the current divisions (and results so far) have been recalculated. This years leagues have been based on last years results with the top two members in each division promoted and the bottom two members relegated to the appropriate division. 

Please see the current league positions (on the Web Site). The new leagues will be published on the Notice Board this Friday Afternoon.

Welcome to Kettering Bridge Club
Calendar for 2017/2018

The 2017/2018 Calendar has been updated for our regular events, as follows:

  AFTERNOON EVENING
MONDAY Supervised Play Evening Duplicate
4th TUESDAY    Laing Trophy
Other TUESDAYS   Tuesday Ladder
WEDNESDAY Supervised Play  
3rd THURSDAY   John Walshaw Cup
Last THURSDAY   Manning Cup and Plate
FRIDAY Kettering Cup Evening Duplicate
SATURDAY   Evening Duplicate 7:00pm Start

The format is the same as last year with Manning Cup and Plate being held on the last Thursday of the month as Trophy and Handicap competitions.  It is intended that the competitions will continue to be played in a friendly but competitive atmosphere. The John Walshaw Cup will continue for the new year and we hope to encourage as wide a participation as we can for all of the team events which give all members an opportunity to experience something close to the atmosphere of InterClub A,B & C team events.

Defib

The club has purchased a defib which is placed upstairs near the window next to the kitchen area. Dr Robin Lee and Dr Roger Bailey recently gave short presentations to club members, on how to use the defib.  There is also a poster next to the defib, and we would urge all members to take a moment to familiarise themselves with what to do in the event of an emergency.
