INCREASE IN TABLE MONEY

Members are advised that following a Committee Meeeting on 5th September, it has been decided that there will be an increase in the table money from £2.50 to £3.00 as from 1st October 2017. The first prizes (N/S and E/W) each evening will rise to £6.00, so that the top pairs still have a "free" session next time they play
The table money has been £2.50 for about the last nine years during which time ongoing costs have risen appreciably.

WELCOME
WELCOME

Welcome to Oswestry Bridge Club, with its warm, friendly atmosphere.  The club has approximately 80 members and we play regularly at the Memorial Hall every Monday and Thursday evening, starting at 7.00pm  (click here for directions).  Annual membership is a staggering £5.00 per year and each session is charged at £2.50 (£3.50 for non-members).  Visitors and guests are always very welcome and if you need a bridge partner contact our Partnership Secretary (see box below). 

Nat White (Telephone: 01691 830376), offers lessons and coaching suitable for everyone from absolute beginners to hardened players wanting to up their skills. He is an experienced player himself and a member of the Bridge Teachers Association, accredited by the EBU.  The club itself is affiliated to the English Bridge Union and awards Masterpoints

Prize money is awarded each week to members (subject to numbers) on the basis of a handicap system.

Prize money is awarded for each session on the basis of the handicapped results (and also provided that there are eight or more tables in the session). Select the event you are interested in and you will see the basic ranking.  Then click on the  Handicap tab to see the handicapped results.  You must play a minimum of two evenings in the previous twelve weeks to get a handicap.  On your first evening you are given a handicap of 0 so you still have a chance to win a prize.  No player can benefit or be penalised by a handicap greater than +/-6 (Monday session) or +/-10 (Thursday session).

PRIZE MONEY

At the Committee Meeting on 20th July 2017 it was agreed that if the number of tables in a given session fell below eight, then no prize money would be awarded for that session.
