Warden Park Becomes a No Smoking Zone

Warden Park Academy has decided that all its buildings and grounds are now a no smoking zone and their insurance policy has been changed to reflect this. Smoking is therefore only permitted on the Broad Street side of the main school entrance gates

Thursday Afternoon Sessions

Thursday afternoons start at 1.30 pm. Table money is now £1.50 for members and £2.50 for visitors.

Education at WSBC

Please note that there is a new item under Teaching clarifying the relationship between the Club and the teaching operation.

 

Welcome to the West Sussex Bridge Club web site. The Club meets for duplicate pairs each Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evening and Thursday afternoons (see Calendar). There is also a Basic Bridge (Level 2) session on Thursday evenings. Many Sussex and EBU events (e.g. simultaneous pairs) are also held here. The Club is situated in Cuckfield, near Haywards Heath in Mid Sussex (see "How to find us" in the "Information" section). The clubhouse is in the grounds of Warden Park Academy.

Whilst many who play in the club are very good players and the overall standard is quite high, the main objective is that everyone should enjoy playing bridge at West Sussex and that the atmosphere remains friendly throughout all sessions.

Monday Evenings 2017

Dear Members
In view of falling numbers the committee has decided to suspend the Monday evening duplicate as from January 1st 2017.
It is hoped that reducing the number of sessions will help to build up and consolidate attendance on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please note that the 2nd, 4th and 5th Wednesdays are regular club nights and will continue to be so, the 'new competitions' take place only on the 1st and 3rd.
Bridge on Mondays will be re-launched when we have our lovely new premises, along with a second afternoon session.

Convention Cards and Partnership Agreements

Whilst not making it compulsory, the Committee would like to encourage all partnerships to have an agreed convention card. You can use your own layout, fill in one of the blank formats to be found on the EBU website or use the simple form on the front page of the score card. The EBU website has some suggested convention cards for basic systems. Having a written partnership agreement obviously helps consistency in bidding and playing and also improving your bridge.

Thursday Evenings

The Thursday evening session is primarily intended for less experienced players and only Level 2 systems may be used. Full details of which conventions are not accepted can be viewed in the menu item called “Thursday Evening Guidelines”.
