Congratulations on the outstanding club performances in the recent IBM Cup simultaneous pairs. Some of our pairs did rather well with Ray Crawford and Guy Malcolm coming first, Geoff Oldfield and Pete Crouch second and Jan Whitehouse and Margaret Blewett fourth out of over 140 pairs county-wide. The full results and the hands with commentary are on the ecats website here IBM Cup Results
The IBM Cup simultaneous pairs competition is a charity event supporting one of the Winchester Bridge Club's favourite charities, the Hampshire & IOW Air Ambulance. The club also donated half the profit from our recent Andrew Robson bridge day to the Air Ambulance.
Winchester Bridge Club welcomes all bridge players, from complete beginner to expert to play duplicate bridge in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We are part of the Winchester Racquets & Fitness Club, Bereweeke Road, Winchester. Membership of the bridge section of the club (currently £137.00 per annum) includes full use of the club facilities, including the bar and cafe, serving drinks, meals and snacks, tea and coffee. No table money is payable. Members interested in a sports or fitness membership package may join and also add bridge membership for just £15 extra.
We play duplicate pairs on Tuesday and most Thursday evenings starting at 7.00pm. Please arrive by 6.45 pm to ensure a prompt start. One Thursday each month is set aside for a teams of four evening. Scoring is electronic, using Bridgemates.
Visitors and prospective new members are always welcome. There is a guest fee of £3.50 for the evening. We normally have a host available on duplicate evenings so visitors do not need a partner, but you are asked to arrive early and introduce yourself to the Director, so that any formalities can be dealt with before start of play.
All sessions are scored electronically by Bridgemate and printed hand records are available.
Beginners and Improvers courses are offered by one of our members, Margaret Blewett (please contact Margaret firstname.lastname@example.org directly for more information). We also offer Supervised Play sessions on Monday evenings, with occasional Gentle Duplicate sessions as part of the programme, to introduce players with less club experience to duplicate play, before taking out full membership, at a special introductory rate. We also run occasional seminars on Wednesday evenings.
