It has been brought to our attention that the hands played on 05/03/15 (Clark Cup) were identical to those played on 28/02/15.The Duplicate sub-committee have investigated this matter and this has been attributed to human dealing error. In accordance with EBU regulations no masterpoints or NGS ranking changes will be awarded and in the circumstances it was decided not to award Club prize money.

Please Give Us Your Unwanted Books

The Club's Book Table has recently had a lot of the tired old titles removed but it is now badly in need of new contributions.

So if you are having a Spring Clean you can donate your no longer wanted books to a good cause.  

Funds raised go towards helping to buy new equipment (currently purchased from previously raised funds is an IT network WD MyCloud for safe backup storage of fundamental and archive data) and other Special Projects within the Club, with books eventually being recycled to local Charity Shops.

From January 2012 we began recording Members Successes in External Competitions on this Website, so if you did well in an EBU, WCBA or holiday bridge event please email or let Nick Woosnam have the details for inclusion in the roll of honour which can be accessed from the left hand menu or by clicking here.

 


Please arrive at least 10 minutes before start time
Please arrive at least 10 minutes before start time

The TDs request that players should make every effort to arrive at the Club at least 10 minutes before the advertised start time. 

As BridgeMates are in use for nearly all sessions it is time consuming and tiresome to reset everything to ensure a prompt start if players are arriving late. This is particularly so on busy nights such as Monday and Thursday when adequate time should be allowed by players for car parking.

Complaints are received about late evening finishes and incomplete hence unfair movements which a prompt start would somewhat alleviate.

The club's mobile telephone number 07749 410 362 is always switched on about half an hour before play is due to start if you want to notify late arrival.

Players who arrive after the movement has been set up without prior notification in most cases will not get a game!!!

 


The Clubhouse

We have two large recently refurbished well-lit playing areas, one of which is equipped for teaching, the rooms both enjoy views across playing fields.

Our club is located at 160 Walmley Road, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, B76 2QA.

Convention Cards

The Duplicate Sub-Committee requests that all regular partnerships should have a fully completed convention card especially if not playing an ACOL based system. This particularly includes five card major or short/better minor based variants used as a partnership agreement opening bid. An opening one level bid in a minor which can be made on 0,1 or 2 cards in the suit must now be announced under new EBU regulations.
