Standby System

St. Andrew Bridge Club operates a standby system on Mondays, Wednesday, Fridays and Sundays so if you are without a partner you can be assured of a game. 

 

Sunday Afternoon Open Pairs - Simple Systems tournament

The Sunday afternoon tournament (above) operates a standby system.  Please arrive around 15 minutes prior to tournament time of 1pm to register. Once registered, please fill the tables from low numbers upwards and help yourselves to tea or coffee. 

It is a very friendly and supportive environment so don't be daunted by the thought of "playing in a tournament", just come along and join in.  Although we aim to finish at 4.30pm, there are rare occasions beyond our control where it is not possible to finish at that time so please consider this when making any arrangements for after the event and allow a little leeway.

Remember that individuals without a playing partner can attend as a standby will always be present and a game is, therefore, guaranteed.

 

The next tournament will be held on Sunday 19th August
