You can come on your own. You do not need to come with a partner.

We will pair you up with a player of similar standard, or if you are lucky one of our experts.

For 45 minutes before the duplicate starts, we will discuss the most interesting hands from the previous week.

Each week, Frank will put a personal commentary on each hand, on the Knole Website.

This should prove invaluable when trying to work out with partner what you should have done, in the bidding, play, or the defence.

Everybody will benefit hugely from studying the hands and reading the commentary. 

We will then play the "Help Duplicate" from 1.00pm till 4.15pm

You will be playing in a proper Duplicate Bridge Competition, with absolutley NO PRESSURE.

The only people who will be playing in the Duplicate will be new to Duplicate bridge players, like you. 

Or people who have only been playing for a year or two.

If you get stuck with the Bidding, Play or Defence you can call for help. An Expert will come and guide you.

The boards will be randomly predealt by computer, so any type of hand could and will come up!!!!

At the end of the Duplicate the score will be calculated and the results will be posted immediately on the Knole Bridge Club Website.

I really hope you will take advantage of this "Help Duplicate." 

You do not need to have attended the West Hants Beginner's Bridge Course to attend this "Help Duplicate."

Anybody who would like to compete in a Duplicate, but was too nervous up to now, is more than welcome.

So is anyone who feels a back to basics session would do them no harm.
