REALLY EASY PAIRS
REALLY EASY PAIRS

On Friday 14 October 1.30pm the club will be running a heat of the Really Easy Pairs. This is a relaxed duplicate pairs event for those with less experience who haven't taken part in Green Point events, and such players are probably below the rank of Master and lower than a Jack on the NGS. It is intended as an introduction to 'congress bridge'. The results will be stratified based on NGS grading with prizes for the overall winners, and Blue Points awarded based on the stratified results. In addition the same hands will be played at other locations round the country, with the competition scored across all venues. To allow our players to compete there will be no Gentle Session that morning. Please contact Peter Jordan at peter@ebu.co.uk to enter. Please mention that you would like to play at the Richmond venue.

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 to Friday, plus Sunday afternoons, including lessons for all standards. Afternoon sessions start promptly at 1.25pm (start-time on Sundays is 2.30pm); in the evenings, play begins at 7.30pm. Special events are often held at weekends. 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 35-36 tables.

STUDENTS' VIDEO

I am sure some of you will remember a group of students at the club making a video about bridge as part of a short video project they were undertaking at college. Thanks to all who took part. I think as normal you have all come across as a very happy bunch. My thanks to Adam and his team for showing how lovely our club and its members are.
