Welcome to Wotton-under-Edge Bridge Club
Introduction
Introduction

Welcome to the Wotton-under-Edge Bridge Club web site. The club meets every Wednesday at the Civic Centre in Wotton-under-Edge to play Duplicate Bridge.  Play starts at 7.15pm.  Please try and arrive by 7:05pm to assist the Director in determining the movement to be played.

 

Guests are always very welcome, and if you don't have a partner we will do our best to try and find one for you.

 

If you are looking for a partner, call Hilary on 01453 842640

Bridge Lessons

Bridge is a very stimulating and addictive pastime. It suits people from all walks of life and of all ages. Learning to play is great fun, and a very social activity.

Lessons will be starting again this autumn.

Slow Play

Slow Play

Our experiment with using a software timer would appear to be working. Since we started using it we have had no significant problems with keeping to the schedule. We must not, however, become complacent.

Please read this article in Mr Bridge, written by Jeremy Dhondy (the EBU Chairman). Also read the page on the Club’s website regarding “Bridge Etiquette”, where some aspects of this topic are discussed.

Our target is to play 24 boards in 3 hours. This equates to 22.5 minutes per round for a three-board movement or 15 minutes per round for a two-board movement. These timings include ALL movements between rounds, making a cup of tea/coffee, visits to the kitchen/loo, etc.

Remember that if you play slowly it affects three other people at your table and four people at every other table.

Scoring System

Well, what an interesting evening! We now have a Bridgemate scoring system. I was impressed with how everybody got to grips very quickly with how to use it, with minimal calls on Carlton and myself. You must all have had a sixth sense, as I hadn't told anybody that I was going to introduce it last night. A very impressive turnout.
