On Monday Afternoon five and a half tables played a two winner Mitchell movement. Top of the North / South side were Margaret & Charles Aitchison with a great score of 65.63. John Jarvis & Teresa Hillier led East / West with an even greater score of 71.67.

Nine full tables played the latest event in our Founders Championship Pairs on Monday Evening. It was a tightly fought evening, but eventually Max Kynoch & Malcolm Melrose led the field with 62.20. Bren Corr & Eva Thompson were second with 59.23, and Brian Jacks & Don Prowse were close behind with 58.63. Malcolm & Max have slightly extended their lead in the Championship, but Peter & Vera Iredale and Brian Jacks & Don Prowse are still well in touch.

On Tuesday Afternoon of last week, ten tables played a two winner Mitchell movement. Frank Grace & Isobel Ross led North / South with 57.74, but Janet Stuchbury & Daphne Rourke were very close with 57.14. Jan Maxon & Heather Spencer were third with 55.95. The top three places on the East / West side all went to husband / wife pairs. Marilyn & David North scared 58.63; Charles & Margaret Aitchison scored 56.55, and only just in third Gerald & Pat Newth scored 56.25.

A practice group of 22 players exercised their Stayman skills on Wednesday Morning.

On Thursday Evening, six tables played a double hesitation Mitchell movement. Graham Clarke & Pat Exelby topped the field with 63.75 followed by Brian Mawby & Peter Halliday with 61.67. Sue Robards & Daphne Rourke were third with 61.25. The individual handicap is now led by Sue Robards. Janet O’Connor is now second and David Reed has moved up to third. All Thursday Evenings up to the end of April are included in this competition and there’s plenty of scope for more changes in the leader board.

We store our equipment in cupboards in the room. We do not have to take tables up and down and do not have to move or stack chairs. We have our own notice board with news and results.

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. There is usually a 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.

There is a host, so a partner will be found for single players. Visitors are welcome.

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 where detailed analysis is available. There is also a "play it again" feature to give insights into the card play.

The bridge is managed by a qualified TD. 

The club is affiliated to the English Bridge Union. Local master points and input to the national grade system are available, for EBU members, from the results of this session.

Please see "Laws, Rules and Convention Cards" for the club rules. Please see the Fees section for table money.

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.
