Introduction and General Information

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome to Nailsea Bridge Club website.  We hope that you find it both interesting and informative.

The club plays duplicate bridge once a week on Thursdays with random teams every last Thursday in the month if there is no half table. We are affiliated to the English Bridge Union (EBU) via the Somerset CBA. Hands are computer dealt (duplimated), enabling hand printouts and display on the website. The Club also takes part in SCBA, EBU and BGB events and, of course, master points are awarded for all events. Some of our players regularly do well in county competitions and occasionally at national level. Others just enjoy a pleasant evening's bridge.

As an affiliated club all our members are entitled to the benefits of EBU membership which you can read about here.

The club meets at Mizzymead Recreation Centre, Mizzymead Rise, Nailsea BS48 2JJ as social members at a cost of £13.50 per annum. Table money is £2.00 for members and £2.50 for visitors.

Play starts promptly at 7.15pm.

Visitors and prospective new members are always welcome. 

County Pairs Championship

A number of club members played in the county pairs championship yesterday. Michael Whittaker (with his partner Roger Sweet from Taunton) and Gina Howard ( with her partner David Howard) were the only club members to make the final. Michael and Roger finished in 3rd place. But it could and should have been so much better. Read Michael's article under a Bridge Nightmare by opening the Hands of the Week tab.

Congratulations to Tom Gibbard, playing with former member David Porter for winning the consolation final.

County Teams Semi Final

Joe Patrick and Michael Whittaker unusually found themselves in opposing teams in the county teams KO semi final. Joe partnered Daphne and they generously hosted the match, which turned out to be a very tight affair indeed. .Over 40 boards, there was never more than 12 IMPs in it. The match was won on the very last board, when a game swing secured victory for Michael's team by just 7 IMPS. 

Slam Hand from 16th February

An interesting slam hand from last Thursday has been reviewed, and it can be found by opening the Hands of the Week tab. Nearly every pair bid the slam, but not one pair made it. And yet in 6NT it is really very easy, if you think about the extra chance!
