Forthcoming events

This year's "Dymant Cup" will be held on the afternoon of Friday 15th July. Eligibility for the trophy or a prize is restricted to members who have played at least 6 Friday afternoon sessions prior to this. 

Then, on Sunday 27th July, we are running a Swiss Teams event (blue-pointed).  There is still time to make a late entry (£14 pp) - please contact Rosemary Holland or Mike Griffiths.

The evening duplicates on Monday 28th and Thursday 31st will be Simultaneous Pairs, and our "fifth Tuesday teams" will be run on 29th July.  Contacts for this are Diana Avis and Jeremy Blanford.

Car Parking Guidelines

The updated car parking guidelines have been posted on the notice board. It is important that these guidelines are followed especially at the changeover between the morning and afternoon sessions.

'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.
