Bridge Classes 2016-17

The link below has a  flyer with details of our lessons, all of which start at the end of September. Please could you draw our lessons to the attention of any friends or family members who might be interested.

If you belong to a club where others might be interested , for example a Golf club or a Bowls club it would be great if you could mention it there and perhaps take some flyers.

We're looking for people returning to the game or learning it for the first time and are especially keen to attract as many as we can to the year 1 lessons to start their Bridge with us. Thank you.

Analyse your Results on Bridgewebs

Bridgewebs provides some very useful features for analysing your performance online, both for Cross Imps in Teams and Matchpoints at Pairs. This facility is completely free, and there is no need to install anything extra. You can replay the hands guided by Double Dummy analysis to see where you went wrong. For Teams events it lists the overall performance of individual pairs in Cross Imps or you can view your Cross Imps on each board. On each hand you may scrutinise how you compared with the other Pairs in MP percentage or Cross Imps.
