The club was very busy that night also hosting two Coventry League matches. The V Team scored their third victory over the Seekers in Division 3 of the Coventry League. In a local derby the Blues took on the Rugby Gambits and came out winners by 10-2 Victory Points. This moves the Village Blues into fifth place in Division 2 of the Coventry League above both the other Rugby based teams. There's a few matches to go though, so the Blues must maintain their form!
On Tuesday afternoon nine full tables were led by Jim and Nicky Bainbridge. Caelia Chandler and Elisabeth Davies were second followed by Mary Kerridge and David Reed. Edwige Quick and Sue Robards were fourth with Audrey Upton and Keith Montford in fifth place.
On Wednesday of last week a record eight full tables played in our very popular social/novice practice session exploring the subtleties of the fourth suit forcing convention.
