Westcotes Bridge Club: Policy concerning visitors

Only club members may participate in our clubnight duplicate events.

A non-member who wishes to play must first join, norrnally as an Associate Member, completing the appropriate application form and paying the Associate Member's subscription (currently 50p). Usually done on first attendance.

Their Associate Membership will last until the end of that club financial year, which runs from April to March, or until such time as they become a Full Member if sooner. Alternatively, if that player is well known to the club and intends to play regularly, the club may accept an immediate application for Full Membership (annual subscription currently £5).

At the end of the 2015-16 season, both our teams in the LCBA League have done well

The A Team were leading Division 2 most of the season, winning their first 9 matches, but then blotted their copy-book by losing the last 3. They still held on to finish runners-up and will probably be promoted back to Division 1 for next season after coming down for this season.

The B Team showed how it should be done, winning Division 3 by 5 points, and should be promoted to Division 2 for 2016-17. This is the second season running that they have been Champions, having won Division 4 a year earlier. A splendid effort, so huge congratulations to them.

Detailed results can be found via the A and B Team League Information items in the menu.
