Duplicate Bridge at St. Luke's church Winton

  The next Duplicate will be held on Monday 27th February at 1.00pm.

 

On Monday 27th March we will be running a heat of the Dorset Bridge Association

"New to Duplicate Bridge" competition.

The competition will be run at 3 venues in Dorset, St. Lukes, Christchurch Bridge Club Thursday night game, and the Dorchester Bridge School. It will be  scored over the 3 venues.

That means that everyone who takes part in the competition will be competing against everyone else at the 3 venues. Not just the venue where you play.

This is a very exciting way to compete in large Duplicate competition.

Everyone who takes part in all the heats, will be new to duplicate bridge.

The standard will be equivalent to anyone who has completed a West Hants Beginners Course.

If you would like to take part please in this very exciting event, please let me know next Monday.

For the regular Monday Afternoon attenders, there will be a normal St Luke's Duplicate,

should you not wish to, or are not eligible to play in the "New to Duplicate" competition.
