Abergavenny Bridge Club Covid Protocol

Safety is paramount and we must provide safe playing conditions. Please follow the precautions we have put in place, and be sensible and take responsibility for their wellbeing and the wellbeing of others. Returning to face-to-face bridge is a personal decision and as with any venue, we cannot guarantee that the Club is Covid free. Below are the operational guidelines we have drawn up for when the club reopens.

  • Please don’t come to the club if you feel unwell

  • You must be fully vaccinated unless medically exempt. You must confirm this when you arrive at the venue or before by email to the Secretary (

  • There will be a maximum of 8 tables and we will be playing Mitchell movements (if at all possible) to minimise moving about the room.

  • If you develop Covid 19 symptoms after attending the Club, please notify the Secretary (Iain Brisbane) immediately on 07814 063862. All players from that session will be notified and recommended to arrange a Covid-19 test.

  • Masks are still a requirement indoors, so you must wear a mask when arriving at the club and whenever you are not seated. Masks are not compulsory when seated. However, if you would prefer to wear your mask during play, please feel free to do so.

  • Please don’t arrive more than 30 minutes before the start of each session and take your seat as soon as possible.

  • We are cashless wherever possible, so you will need to continue with your online account, or set one up if you haven’t been playing online, with the Treasurer to pay for Table money.(see below)

  • Boards will be put out as usual. Each set will be quarantined for a minimum of 72 hours after use.

  • Only one person (John, Iain or Richard) will collect boards after play.

  • Only North should handle boards at each table.

  • North should show the inputted scores to East for verbal acceptance.

  • If the TD needs to touch the cards at a table, he/she will wear disposable gloves.

  • Sanitizers will be available when you enter the Leisure Centre and in the room where we play. Please bring your own hand sanitizer with you to use before you touch the cards.

  • Please carry your bidding box with you every time you move. If you have your own bidding box you are very welcome to bring it along.

  • Please wash your hands after using the toilet and then sanitise them when you return to your table.

  • Windows will be left open during a session to ensure the room is adequately ventilated.


To start playing please, where at all possible, pay via Bank Transfer to the following Nat West account. (Abergavenny Bridge Club, Sort Code: 51-61-02 Account Number: 76412199). If you are unable to do this, you may leave a cheque made out to Abergavenny Bridge Club with Richard, John or Iain or otherwise send a cheque to Richard Welsford at 6 Castle Wood, Usk, Gwent, NP15 1SR.


Please be reassured that some Online sessions on Realbridge sessions will continue, although some sessions may change as face to face bridge opens up.


Finally, thank you for your help and understanding. We are all in this together.
