19th July

On Sunday two teams of four played in the Stratford Bridge Club Shakespeare Teams. This long established event was once won by a team including Omar Sharif. While the event is always played in a really friendly and pleasant atmosphere, the field is always strong with some of the best players in the region turning out. So Malcolm and Max with Nicky and Jim are thrilled to have won it this year. [Picture] Ed and Ishar White with Peter and Vera Iredale also played but clearly concentrated on enjoying the company!

On Monday Afternoon Bill & Lyn Stubbins led the North / South side of a six and a half table two winner Mitchell movement with 65,83. Angela Hobbs & Pat Stubbings took second with 55.83. East / West was led by Pat & Ron Fisher with 57.86 only just ahead of Gordon McLachlan & Bob Reeve with 57.14.

An influx of visitors joined regular players on Monday Evening. John Drake & Lo Tolbutt led the North / South side of eight tables with 60.71. Alan Webb and Chris Cassin took second with 54.17. Robert Spencer & Graham Lightfoot led East / West with 63.39. Dennis Angove & Rosemary Jordan were second with 56.85.

On Tuesday Afternoon of last week eight and a half tables played a two winner Mitchell. Frank & Isobel Ross led North / South with 61.60. Jim Bainbridge & Lo Tolbutt took second with 60.20. Charles & Margaret Aitchinson were the East / West top with 56.55. The battle for second place was won by Brian Mawby & David Reed with 52.68.

With 61.11, Brian Mawby & David Reed led the nine pair evening on Thursday of last week. Val Jones & David Edwards took second place with 57.94. Once their performance was handicapped, Carol Davies and Geoff Davies went into the lead on the champagne handicap rankings, but there’s plenty more events to play.

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.
