Welcome to Woodborough Bridge Club
Who are we?

WOODBOROUGH BRIDGE CLUB meets every Thursday, 7:00pm at the Village Hall on Lingwood Lane. The Club is affiliated to the English Bridge Union. For those who enjoy a more competitive game the Club have successful teams in the Nottinghamshire County League: One Team of Eight in each of the three divisions, and two Teams of Four in the top division. During the year the Club takes part in a couple of national Simultaneous Pairs competitions. There is on site car parking and excellent disabled access.

We charge £2.00 a night for members, or £3.00 for guests, which includes refreshments.

We very much welcome new members. If you would like to come along we do suggest you contact either the Chairperson (via e-mail) or the Secretary beforehand. We will do our best to arrange for a partner if you do not have one.

New Laws of Contract Bridge 2017

The World Bridge Federation updates the Laws of Duplicate Bridge every ten years. The latest edition has been published this summer and the EBU will be applying the new Laws in its events from the 1st August 2017. Clubs in England are required to introduce the 2017 Laws by the end of September, which will allow more time for directors and players to get up to speed with the changes.  Useful summaries are here New Laws Summary.docx   or here New Laws poster.pdf.

For Players, probably the first thing to notice is that the current board must be kept in the centre of the table, in the correct orientation.  This will help reduce mis-boarding.

In terms of everyday play the key changes with which Directors need to be most familiar relate to

(1) the introduction of the concept of a “Comparable Call” and the implications for proceeding after an Insufficient Bid or a Call out of Turn (incl subsequent lead penalties);

(2) Claims and concessions;

(3) when the wrong players sit down at a table and play the wrong boards.

However there are, as you would expect, a number of minor adjustments in other areas. Of course it will take time for us all to become used to these changes, but you will find that the role of the director should overall have been made a bit easier and players will more often be able to continue play with a minimum of disruption.
