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. 

An Interesting Hand from Cold and Wet Scotland

Whilst you have been recently baking in the South, the Scots have been having lousy so called summer weather. I return home tomorrow to what I was hoping would be lovely warm weather. But alas probably no. Never mind, at least I can play bridge!

A very interesting hand came up last week in a local club duplicate. It has learning points in both the bidding and the play. You can find the hand by clicking on the Hand of the Week.

Sacrificing and Bidding Five over Five

Using a couple of example hands from Thursday 22 June 2017, Michael Whittaker puts forward two "Nevers" in sacrifice bidding and bidding on over the opponents' sacrifice. Click on Hand of the Week to review.
