We meet twice a week, Wednesdays and Fridays, at Newent Community School,on Watery Lane in Newent.

Play starts at 7p.m. on Wednesday and 7.15p.m. on Friday. We would ask you to be seated by 6:50 p.m. on Wednesday and 7:05 p.m. on Friday, to give the Directors time to arrange the movement and still start on time.

Wednesday is the competitive evening and Friday has both a competitive duplicare and a social duplicate playing fewer boards and no Masterpoints awarded.  This session is where students are introduced gently to the format of duplicate bridge at the end of their lessons, and Standard Acol conventions are played.

Visitors are welcome, but may not win one of our trophies, and are invited to join the club after visiting 3 times in one club year..

Club Introduction

All hands are created and dealt using a Duplimate dealing system.

A printed hand record is available at the end of every session and also available with the result.

Scoring is completed electronically at the table via BridgeMates.

The  result is available as soon as the session is completed.

Scoring Errors

If you notice a scoring error, please notify the NBC Directors. by midday on the day following the event at the latest. Note that any correction must be authorised by the TD from the event and agreed by the opposition. Scores entered at the table will have been entered by one pair and accepted by the other so subsequent correction isn't mandatory.
