Tip of the week

Call The Director

If a problem occurs during the bidding or play of a hand, always call the Tournament Director to get a ruling. Don't try and implement what you think may be the rule or let others impose their will upon you.

Calling the director should not be seen by any player as an aggressive action. It is a means of ensuring fair play and neutrality.

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
