IMP Scoring System for Small Events.

The committee has agreed to give the Director discretion to operate the  IMP scoring system for club events where the number of tables is three and a half or less. 

Of critical importance, players need to be aware that the two systems require different bidding strategies for a successful outcome. The Director can advise players on these differences before the start of play. Anyone wanting to read more about different strategies under the two scoring methods can read a longer article "Matchpoints vs IMPs" by James Vickers in the menu list.

Interested in learning Bridge ?
The Beginners Course which started on Thursday, 10 September 2015 runs from  7.15pm until 10pm approximately. The complete course includes a further 12 taught sessions from January 2016 followed by a few sessions of supervised play. The cost per session is £6.
If you are interested in refreshing your knowledge and skills, please contact Val Lupton on tel 01922 419190.
