With 63.69, Michael Ward & Jim Bainbridge were second and Janet O’Connor & Don Prowse took third with 61.61. Chris Cooper & Margaret Aitchison took fourth with 60.42.

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.
