Summer parties

We are holding our annual summer parties this year on Wednesday 10th June (12 noon for 12.30)  and on Monday 15th June (6pm for 6.30).  The cost per person for each event is £16.00.  For full details please see the posters in the hall, and sign up to reserve your place.

New Master Point Rule

From 1st August 2015, a new EBU rule on Master Points will come into force.  This states that Master Points will only be awarded for pairs events in which all competitors are scheduled to play at least 75% of the boards, which can include sit-outs.  For more details, see http://www.ebu.co.uk/newsletters/?id=29&page=3.

Monday afternoon 25th May

Please note that, although 25th May is a Bank Holiday, Brian Lippard intends to run his Monday afternoon supervised session as usual.

Forthcoming events
On Tuesday 26th May we are running our summer mixed pairs competition - Rex Corbett Cup.  This is a major club competition and is open to members only.  We regret that same sex pairs cannot be accepted, except at the director's discretion (e.g. to make up a full table).

'Bridge with Angela' 5th edition

Angela Tompson has updated her popular bridge guide for students and improvers;  this is the fifth edition following upon the success of the earlier versions. The basics are unchanged but Angela has taken the opportunity to include further conventions currently and commonly played, including Benjaminised Acol.

This book commences with the very basics of bridge and goes on to describe the essential elements of bidding. Guidance on play of the cards and defence is included followed by explanations of conventions commonly played.


The Price is £7.95 and can be purchased at the club bar or phone Angela on 01892 526716.
