PLAY BRIDGE IN SOMERSET

 

 

PAIRS' LEAGUE

PAIRS' LEAGUE 2019

ONE MORE PAIR REQUIRED. 

The sixth season of the Pairs League starts on Friday March 8th at Woolavington.

For those who havent played before this is an event in which pairs play against a set target score with results imped as in a teams' game. Pairs are placed into divisions so are guaranteed to be playing only against others of similar ability and so there is nothng to be feared by less experienced players wishing to have a go. Last year we had four divisions and 24 pairs in total.

Pairs play 2 x 12 board matches on each of 5 evenings the other dates being Friday March 22nd (Woolavington), Tuesday April 2nd(Woolavington)  Wednesday April 10th (Cossington) and Thursday April 18th (Cossington) with all matches starting at 7pm.

Closing date for entries is Friday February 22nd, entry is open to all and costs £25 per pair for the whole event.

GINA COLTMAN ANNOUNCED AS OUR NEW CLUB MEMBERSHIP DEVELOPMENT OFFICER
GINA COLTMAN ANNOUNCED AS OUR NEW CLUB MEMBERSHIP DEVELOPMENT OFFICER

We all know that there is an existential threat to the game of bridge nationally because of the demographic of clubs and a lack of strategy in many cases to deal with the issue of members being lost at one end of the scale and not being replaced at the other end.

In an attempt to reverse this trend in Somerset we have appointed Gina as our membership development officer whose primary roles will be

a) To persuade  clubs to join with the SCBA in this development programme.
b) To support those clubs joining the programme.
c) To increase club membership in clubs by the introduction of teaching programmes, recruitment strategies and generally enhancing the club experience.

Gina will be contacting all EBU clubs and you can see Gina’s profile and contact information here.   

Somerset is supporting the EBU's membership development campaign which you can read about here.

NO MORE POLYSTYRENE CUPS

It has been decided that we shall no longer use polystyrene or plastic cups at county events. Refreshments will of course continue to be available but players should bring their own cup if they wish to have a hot drink. This will apply at county league and pairs’ league fixtures.
