We are delighted to announce the EBU Masters Pairs on Sunday 24 February at 11:30 am. This Green Pointed event provides a wonderful opportunity to play against players of an equal standing to your own since it is open to players below the rank of Regional Master. This includes: Local Masters, Club Masters, District Masters, County Masters, Masters, Advanced Masters, Star Masters, Tournament Masters and Premier Masters.
The competition will be directed by Richard Banbury and will be played as a 2-session event, with approximately 45 minutes between sessions. Each session will be around 24 duplimated boards (the movement used will depend on the number of entrants) and will be scored using Bridgemates. Green Points will be awarded throughout, both for session results and for final ranking. Session awards will go to the top 1/4 of the overall field based on the session scores alone.
We are delighted to offer this event at a much reduced rate of £15 per person. This represents a £20 saving per pair over last year's event.
We will be serving food to our usual high standards in the break. Please let us have your order so we can ensure we have your selection on the day. You can do this by completing the relevant section on the booking form.
We are pleased to announce a series of hints & tips we are calling Tim's Teasers. The next of these is on 7 March at an earlier time of 10.00am. Tim will be taking you through hands which he has encountered while playing in congresses, competitions or regular club bridge. These are real hands, not ones which have been cleverly constructed to illustrate a point, with interesting points in both the bidding and play. The same hand will be played simultaneously at every table after which Tim will spend time debriefing , discussing how to avoid the pitfalls and make good sensible decisions which will greatly improve your overall game. As every table will be playing the hands at the same time, we need to know how many to deal so please click here to book. Numbers are restricted so please do not book if you do not intend to go, if you cancel late the club will expect payment. You do not need a partner and the cost collected on the day is £15.00 for Members; £18.00 for Visitors.

All players should be seated at least 10 minutes before the session starts. Arriving late without warning is rude, and should be avoided if at all possible. If you are delayed en-route to a session, please be sure to call and tell us so that we may reserve space for you in the movement (or inform your waiting partner), otherwise you risk a wasted journey.
Please note we are now allowed to park in the bowling club car park week days from 7.00pm. We are keen to be good neighbours and if you use the car park you will leave more spaces for local residents. If you cannot park in the car park please park on the bowling club side of the road. Do not park on the residential side of the road or in Fairlawns (the small crescent on the left). We appreciate your help.
