Tip of the week

Following Suit In Tempo

If you have a singleton in a suit that has been led, or you are down to your last card in that suit, then it is quite unethical to deliberately pause before playing to the trick. You should play the card 'in tempo' i.e. without undue haste or with a deliberate pause. To deliberately pause may falsely create the impression that you have a choice and therefore something to think about!

Our Main Playing Room

The New Melville Bridge Club was delighted to move into a new clubhouse last year. The building has now been completely refurbished giving the club some superb playing facilities including two dedicated match rooms, a teaching room and a large open playing area that accommodates twenty eight tables.

The club is located close to Edinburgh Zoo and has many buses stopping outside. Parking is also very easy and convenient.

Enjoy your bridge!
Alan Goodman - Chairman
