Monday Afternoon Supervised Play Sessions

On Monday afternoons at 1:45, Paul Gibbons is running Supervised Play sessions.

These sessions are aimed at players who want to practice their Bridge skills, and to be able to discuss their hands, correct plays, and solve problems etc. in a relaxed atmosphere. Table money £3, including refreshments.

If you don't have a partner, just come on your own, or contact the Partnering Service who should be able to match you up.

As Supervised Play, there will be no EBU Master Points awarded.

Find a Partner

 If you know you will need a partner call and leave a message, or text Peter Webster on 07710 419241, or email him on prwebster@hotmail.co.ukPlease leave contact details, dates, and any preferences.  He will co-ordinate the service, keeping a list for all partner requests for upcoming sessions, and notify you if a suitable partner is available.

Please try to register your partner requests at least 24 hours in advance, as on-the-day requests may be difficult to match.

If anybody does not regularly play a particular session, but is happy to consider occasional games with those seeking a partner at short notice, please register an interest.
