Now that 'Summer' is here the Winter pairs competitions have been completed. Winners of the scrath competition were Chris and Clive. Clive also won the handicap event playing with Lesley. 

Summer events start from April 9th.







Welcome to Ringwood Bridge Club

 The President's Trophy competition took place at Chesterfield Golf Club on 28th November. Heavy traffic and a "no show" delayed the start but players adhered to the timer and the competition was completed shortly after 15.00. The Lunch was good and the play was very competitive. Steve & Phil (Thomas) led the field for most of the morning and were odds on to retain their title. They were ultimately 3rd with an excellent 61% behind David & Baz 2nd with 62.5%. Phil (Green) & Chris won the Trophy with 63.4%. David & Baz won the handicap. A very enjoyable day all round. 

The New Year's event will also be held at Chesterfield Golf Club on Thursday 3rd January at 09.30 for Tea and Coffee and play is scheduled to start at 10.00. There will be a 3 course lunch with play in the afternoon until 16.30. Results will be posted to EBU as usual. The price and menu are available on the Club notice board. Please add your name to the list or email a response.

We will be holding two Christmas Fun Bridge sessions  on the Monday and Tuesday of the week before Christmas. Some fun hands,mince pies and prizes! Come and celebrate at the last events of  2018 on the 17th and 18th December.

There will be no bridge at Grassmoor during Christmas and New Year weeks. With the exception of our New Year event the next club session will be on January 7th.

Learn Bridge

The lesson on Monday Dec 17th will aim at convincing the players that they know more about the two unseen hands than they realise. The No fear duplicate will run in parallel for those who wish to play and discuss a few hands.  Dave



Chairman's Remarks

 We intend to make another attempt to start lessons at the College in Februry. We need to use November December and January to see if there is any interest. If you know anyone who has a friend  relation or neighbour  attending the college please let us know. We would like to do some market research.


Seventeen pairs competed this 3rd running of the President's Trophy competition. Won handsomely by Phil Green and Chris Challinor with 63.4%. The Handicap was won by the scratch runners up Baz Davies & David Emerson. A very enjoyable days bridge with good food in a pleasant setting. 


The third running of the Marjore Mound Competition yielded new winners in Haydn & Delphine Anderson. They were very worthy winners with Lyndon & Susan relegated to mid table. A very well attended event with a healthy donation to the Ashgate Hospice.
