On Monday Afternoon eight and a half tables played a two-winner Mitchell movement. Joint top of the North / South side, both pairs scoring 62.50 were Moyra Loughran & Jane Broadbent and Pat Stubbings & Nicky Bainbridge. John Jarvis & Theresa Hillier led the East / West side with 58.93. Sue Robards and Sue Harris took second with 56.55.

On Monday Evening eight and a half tables played a Mitchell with an arrow switch on the last round, giving a single wining pair. Max Kynoch & Malcolm Melrose returned to form, leading with 65.00. Closing the gap rapidly towards the end of the evening and finishing on 57.82, in second were Janet O’Connor & Mike Ward. Edward & Ishar White took third with 56.25 and Mary Kerridge & Jane Reed were fourth with 54.76.

This puts Malcolm & Max back at the top of the Founders Championship pairs leader board but Janet O’Connor & Michael Ward are very close behind, and Brian Mawby & David Reed are well in contention.

 On Tuesday Afternoon of last week, ten tables played a two winner Mitchell movement. The results on both sides were close, everyone had a chance of finishing in the top half, and positions changed dramatically as each result was entered on the tablets and collected by the laptop. The North / South top spot was shared by Frank Grace & Isobel Ross and Sue Herring & Judy Spring both pairs scoring 55.95. Brian Jacks & Don Prowse took third with 55.65. East / West was won by Elisabeth Davies & John Cockburn scoring 55.65; Bob Braines & Jim Bainbridge took second with 54.76; third were Glenys Barton & Bob Reeve with 54.46.

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.
