Expectations
Standards of Behaviour

The KLTC Bridge Club policy on Standards of Behaviour is:

  • Law 74 of the World Bridge Federation's Laws of Duplicate Bridge states an expectation that all players will "maintain a courteous attitude at all times" and "carefully avoid any remark or action which might cause annoyance or embarrassment to another player or might interfere with the enjoyment of the game"
  • The KLTC Bridge Club Committee expects that this high standard of behaviour will be observed by all members, not only at the bridge table but also more generally in their relationships with and comments about other members.

The Committee has established a Standards of Behaviour subcommittee (SBSC) to monitor compliance with this policy and undertake any investigations which may be required.
