SEMINAR TIM CHANTER SATURDAY JULY 11
SEMINAR TIM CHANTER SATURDAY JULY 11

We are delighted to give Tim Chanter a further opportunity to increase his  growing reputation as an excellent teacher. Tim is one of our newest teachers and we have  received  outstanding reports of his teaching style. Tim is patient, clear and concise. Please come along to on July 10.30am to Tim's first seminar called "What's Declarer Up To". Cost will be £12.00 and will include a cup of coffee and pastry.

As a defender, you have several sources of information to help you work out what is going on:  you have heard the bidding, you have seen the opening lead, and have watched partner's carding carefully.  In addition, declarer has made some decisions about the play and these can be very useful in understanding the hand.  If you can read declarer's intentions you have a better chance of finding the best countermeasure.  Come along to the seminar to hear a discussion on this topic, then play and review some hands composed to make you think as a defender about 'What's Declarer Up To?'

WELCOME TO RICHMOND BRIDGE CLUB
WELCOME TO RICHMOND BRIDGE CLUB

Richmond Bridge Club is housed in the old Bowling Club Pavilion in Cambridge Park, nestling between Richmond and Twickenham in South-West London. The Clubhouse and the Club are now dedicated solely to Bridge.

We offer a full range of duplicate bridge playing facilities from Monday through Friday  plus Sunday including lessons for all standards. Afternoon sessions start promptly at 1.30pm (parking vouchers are obtainable from the Director); in the evenings, play commences at 7.30pm. Special Events are often held at week-ends at different times. The Club is affiliated to the Surrey County Bridge Association and the English Bridge Union.

Computer dealt hands (with printed hand copies available after play) and the "Bridgemate" wireless scoring system (giving you instant results as you play) are used for all sessions.

The Clubhouse, extensively refurbished in 2002, is now probably one of the finest in Surrey and we can accommodate 38 tables. The lovely picture above was painted by John Rogers who has been a club member for many years.

Those of you who were here yesterday 28th April will have witnessed the club being visited by Sky Sport News and entering into the debate of whether Bridge should be classified as a sport. My thanks to all of the members who were involved. I think the club has come over in the most positive light. If you missed the recording please CLICK here and have a look, it really is splendid.
