Woburn Sands Bridge Club

Woburn Sands is a friendly Bridge Club that meets at St. Mary's Church Hall, Aspley Hill in Woburn Sands MK17 8NN. The Church Hall is a spacious venue with its own car park. There are two sessions

  •  Wednesday Evenings 6.45pm for a prompt 7.00pm start (to 10.15 pm)
  • Monday Afternoons  (restarts October 3rd) 12.45pm for a prompt 1.00pm start (to 4.00pm)

The hands are randomly generated by computer and dealt using a PlayBridgeDealer4+ machine. The purchase of the machine and associated material (cards and boards) has been supported by funding from Milton Keynes Community Foundation (click here for further information and a demonstration).

Results are collated using Bridge Tab App on Lenovo tablets and reported on this website usually the following day together with details of the hands played.

We are not as yet affiliated to the EBU and cannot issue Master-points

 Members are welcome to bring a guest and other Visitors are welcome and requested to make contact in advance. Contact  Phil Armitage 01908  584473

Director's Hand of the Week 22nd February

South has a shapely hand and opens 1♣ . West will bid 1♠  (or 2♠ if playing weak jump overcall). North tries 3  and East supports ♠ . South now wishes he had bid the suit initially but does so now and N converts to 5♣ as, with Butler scoring, a successful game contract is likely to score heavily. With a mix of (mainly) successful 3♣ and 3♠ bids the Butler score is in fact zero. One S made a fortuitous 3NT on a spade lead (blocked with a low ♠ return?) and one EW sailed into 3 D which cost 800 points (13 IMPS).

Looking for a Regular or Occasional Partner?

If you're looking for either a regular or an occasional partner, or are perhaps willing to be contacted when someone else is looking, there are two options.

One. Just click on the Membership tab opposite left and log into the secure Members'Area with your own email address and password.

Select 'New Message' and how long you want it listed for.  It's then very easy to either compose your own message, or use any of the standard message templates from the drop-down menu, which can only be seen by other clubmembers also logged into the Members'Area.

Two. Anyone who needs a partner may also get in touch either by email or telephone

  - by Tuesday  for a partner on Wednesday 

 - by Friday for a partner on Monday.

with Phil Armitage (01908 584473), or failing that with any other of the Committee members .
