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.
