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.

Wednesday Practice
Friendly Practice

Practice for Novices and Social Players Wednesday mornings 10.00-12.00

  • Brief Summary of the Topic of the Session from a qualified teacher.
  • Play a set of boards ALL designed for Practice of the Topic.
  • Topic will be on the web site prior to the session.
  • During the teaching term, Wednesday Practice topics will follow the Bridge 2 curriculum.
  • This is an excellent chance to reinforce your learning, or to revise the material, or just have fun ensuring your understanding of the basics.
  • Use notes, books, ask for help.
  • There is a host, so you do not have to bring a partner.
  • There is a break with coffee, tea and biscuits.
  • The session is scored so that you see the effect of your play on the score. However, because it is an assisted session there are no EBU Master Points to be had and the results do not contribute to your National Grade. The sessions are recorded with the EBU and do attract magazine points.
  • Both Club Members and Visitors are welcome at these practice sessions.
