Find a Partner

It's good to see Find a Partner being used increasingly by club members. Here's a reminder of how it works, for those who haven't yet tried it.

Find a Partner (Members) is available to all via the menu on the left. However, if you wish to update it, typically to submit a Find a Partner request, you will have to logon to Members Only.

Once you've logged in, you need to fill in the appropriate details on the Find a Partner screen:

  • Show Email / Phone / Mobile... tick box(es) as appropriate
          depending on how you wish to be contacted
  • Select Event and tick the PR box
          There are in fact three tick-boxes per event: 
          PR = Partner Required, NP = Not Playing, PL = Playing
  • Click Confirm to submit your Find a Partner request

This request will now appear on the club Calendar, as a visible flag "(Partner?)" against the event, acting as a link to Find a Partner.  In addition, the club will reinforce this request by circulating an email to the entire club membership summarising the request.

Once the Find a Partner request has been satisfied, the requestor should out of courtesy update Find a Partner by simply removing the request (untick the PR box and Confirm). Alternatively, they can tick the PL box, add their partner's name for this event as comment, and Confirm as before. The request will now appear on the Calendar as "(Reservation)".

Remember, it's your club and the BridgeWebs facilities are there to be used. There's more on the club website than just the Latest Result!
