On Monday evening nine full tables played a single winner Mitchell movement. Top of the form were Chris Cassin and Alan Webb with 66.96. Helen Foster and Nicky Bainbridge came second with 59.23. Third were John Drake and Craig Hutton with 56.25. Visitors Terry Leary and John Leaviss were not far behind with 55.95 and Christine Greenaway and Jane Reed, with 53.27, were fifth. It was a night of slams with sixteen successful slam calls, three of them grand, on four boards, while a fifth delivered 12 or 13 tricks every time, but no slams called!

 

On Tuesday of last week seventeen pairs played a single winner movement. Top were Chris Cooper & Maxwell Kynoch with 63.49; second Caelia Pinkney & Ron Woolgar with 63.43; third Judy Douglas & Diana Kinch with 57.87; fourth Edwige Quick & Sue Robards 57.54; fifth Alan Page & John Chard on 52.78; and sixth Frank Grace & Isobel Ross with 51.85.   

 

On Sunday the annual Shakespeare Swiss teams was held at Stratford Bridge Club. Rugby Village entered two teams into the high quality field of 20 teams. With an excellent steady consistent level of play the team consisting of Sue Robards, Janet O’Connor, Jim Bainbridge and Nicky Bainbridge came third. Congratulations!

Friendly Practice

Practice for Novices and Social Players Wednesday mornings 10.00-12.00

  • Brief Summary of the Topic of the Session from a qualified teacher.
  • Play a set of boards ALL designed for Practice of the Topic.
  • Topic will be on the web site prior to the session.
  • During the teaching term, Wednesday Practice topics will follow the Bridge 2 curriculum.
  • During the teaching term Monday Practice topics will follow the Bridge 3 curriculum.
  • This is an excellent chance to reinforce your learning, or to revise the material, or just have fun ensuring your understanding of the basics.
  • Use notes, books, ask for help.
  • There is a host, so you do not have to bring a partner.
  • There is a break with coffee, tea and biscuits.
  • The session is scored so that you see the effect of your play on the score. However, because it is an assisted session there are no EBU Master Points to be had and the results do not contribute to your National Grade. The sessions are recorded with the EBU and do attract magazine points.
  • Both Club Members and Visitors are welcome at these practice sessions.
