Teams Leagues
Teams League and Knock Out Matches Expenses

RVBC offers its members a chance to play in local bridge teams leagues and enters some teams knock out competitions. The club pays the entry fees.

Home Matches

The club will provide venues for home matches, provide random deals with printed hand records, scoring stationary and a director/host, sometimes a playing member of staff.

The club provides refreshments for home matches.

Each member of the club’s home team pays one club ticket, or cash equivalent to help defray these costs.

Away matches played locally

When club members play an “away” match at Dunchurch Sports Field and Village Hall against a club “home” team, the away team members do not pay a ticket or cash equivalent. However, the club does not contribute towards the away team’s travel expenses.

If an away match is played by a club team at another venue within Rugby town, or within six miles of the Dunchurch Sports Field and Village Hall (CV21 6PN), the club does not contribute towards the away team’s travel expenses.

Away matches played further away

If an away match is played by a club team at another venue not within Rugby town (CV21 or CV22), or more than six miles of the Dunchurch Sports Field and Village Hall (CV21 6PN), the club will support any driver taking one or more team members as passengers as follows.

The driver will be reimbursed 45p per mile for twice the distance from the Dunchurch Sports Field and Village Hall to the match venue.

Many thanks to all drivers helping to participate in Teams Leagues.
