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 on the west side of Haywards Heath in Mid Sussex, at Lamb House within the Hurst Place Development (see "How to find us" in the "Information" section). 

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.

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”.
