On a really busy Monday evening two club teams were in action in the Coventry Teams of Four League. In Division 3, the V Team had their first league match away at Coventry Bridge Club and lost to Caludon – better luck next time. In Division 2 the Village Blues reversed the recent cup result against Wyken and came away 12-0 winners.

 

The above matches and other league action reduced the turn out on Monday evening to four and half tables. It was a quality field though, and the top places changed many times in the early evening before David Reed and Brian Mawby settled into first place, finishing on 64.29. Alan Webb and Chris Cassin settled into second place, though the size of their lead varied considerably, but they ended with 57.94. Third place was fought for up to the last board, but Adrian Williams and Don Prowse snatched it with 51.59 just passing the scratch pair of Ken Fernie and Smita Basu with exactly 50%.

 

This third place leaves Adrian and Don well in the lead in the Founders Championship pairs. They have averaged second place (7) over their best 8 scores this year, a really strong record. With two events to go it seems unlikely Alan Webb and Chris Cassin, with an average of 5.69 can catch them.

 

On Tuesday afternoon of last week nine full tables were led by Glenys Barton & Jan Maxon scoring a remarkable 69.44 against a strong field. Brian Mawby & David Reed could only manage second with 63.89 and Frank Grace & Isobel Ross came third with 61.90. 59.13 saw Nicky Bainbridge & Janet Stuchbury into fourth place followed by Don Prowse & Brenda Berger on 56.75. Alan & Pat Ware were sixth with 55.56.

 

On Monday morning seven players practised various competitive bidding techniques, with special reference to the protective position. On Wednesday eighteen players concentrated on the take out double.

Capacity on Monday Evenings and Tuesday Afternoons

The number of players on Tuesday afternoons has been growing steadily for some time and is generally higher than the turn out on Monday evenings. We were close to having to turn people away. We have been using the Sports Lounge, accessible through the changing rooms. Players are getting used to this arrangement, and some even enjoy the peace and quiet! We had some problems with the signal to the tablets to begin with, but we seem to have solved those now. This means our capacity on Tuesday afternoons is now around fifteen tables, so you don’t have to worry about getting a space.

Mondays are also getting busier with new members, and people returning from those early summer holidays and the local and Warwickshire based leagues having finished for the summer. We have the option to put one table outside the lounge area taking our capacity to eleven full tables. This will be enough to get us through the winter season.

Lutterworth Bridge Club

Monday Evening
Monday Evening

Monday Evening is a duplicate pairs evening. We aim to start play at 19.00, so please arrive a few minutes before so that the TD can count the tables, choose and initiate a suitable movement. We don't start a new round after 22.00, so the evening generally finishes around 22.15. The event takes place on all Mondays EXCEPT BANK HOLIDAYS, and for a generally two week break around Christmas and the New Year.

The evening takes place in the Club Room at the Dunchurch Village Hall. The Club Room was newly refurbished in October 2011, contains a kitchenette, and has its own adjacent toilet facilities. The entrance to the Club Room is at the far end of the complex. It is a porch like door with carriage lights on either side. There is well lit off street parking for over 70 cars.

There is a short break for coffee, tea and biscuits during the evening.

Boards are prepared using a duplimate machine. Scoring is done at the table using BridgeTabs, a popular and easy to use colour touch screen device. There is a rolling display of the position throughout the session. Results are distributed with integrated hand records by e-mail to the players. Results are also loaded to the web site, available to members, together with some statistical analysis in the "competitions" section.

There is a host available to play with single players. Visitors are welcome.The bridge is managed by a qualified TD. There is an arrangement in place with an external referee to handle any appeals.

The club is affiliated to the English Bridge Union. Players are permitted to use agreements defined as Level 3 in the EBU Regulations (the "Orange" Book). EBU Master Points are awarded to qualifying players.

We are proud of the pleasant atmosphere at the session. All players are expected to support their partner, and to treat their opponents with courtesy. That's what makes an enjoyable evening for everyone.

Please see the Fees section for table money.
