On a really busy Monday evening two club teams were in action in the Coventry Teams of Four League. In Division 3, the V Team had their first league match away at Coventry Bridge Club and lost to Caludon – better luck next time. In Division 2 the Village Blues reversed the recent cup result against Wyken and came away 12-0 winners.

 

The above matches and other league action reduced the turn out on Monday evening to four and half tables. It was a quality field though, and the top places changed many times in the early evening before David Reed and Brian Mawby settled into first place, finishing on 64.29. Alan Webb and Chris Cassin settled into second place, though the size of their lead varied considerably, but they ended with 57.94. Third place was fought for up to the last board, but Adrian Williams and Don Prowse snatched it with 51.59 just passing the scratch pair of Ken Fernie and Smita Basu with exactly 50%.

 

This third place leaves Adrian and Don well in the lead in the Founders Championship pairs. They have averaged second place (7) over their best 8 scores this year, a really strong record. With two events to go it seems unlikely Alan Webb and Chris Cassin, with an average of 5.69 can catch them.

 

On Tuesday afternoon of last week nine full tables were led by Glenys Barton & Jan Maxon scoring a remarkable 69.44 against a strong field. Brian Mawby & David Reed could only manage second with 63.89 and Frank Grace & Isobel Ross came third with 61.90. 59.13 saw Nicky Bainbridge & Janet Stuchbury into fourth place followed by Don Prowse & Brenda Berger on 56.75. Alan & Pat Ware were sixth with 55.56.

 

On Monday morning seven players practised various competitive bidding techniques, with special reference to the protective position. On Wednesday eighteen players concentrated on the take out double.

Capacity on Monday Evenings and Tuesday Afternoons

The number of players on Tuesday afternoons has been growing steadily for some time and is generally higher than the turn out on Monday evenings. We were close to having to turn people away. We have been using the Sports Lounge, accessible through the changing rooms. Players are getting used to this arrangement, and some even enjoy the peace and quiet! We had some problems with the signal to the tablets to begin with, but we seem to have solved those now. This means our capacity on Tuesday afternoons is now around fifteen tables, so you don’t have to worry about getting a space.

Mondays are also getting busier with new members, and people returning from those early summer holidays and the local and Warwickshire based leagues having finished for the summer. We have the option to put one table outside the lounge area taking our capacity to eleven full tables. This will be enough to get us through the winter season.
