There is a list up in the club of people looking for partners for specific sessions plus the "find a partner" option, so please add your name if you are interested ♠   ♣ 

 

 

 

Player of the Month - February 2020

Congratulations to John Condon, winner of this month's Player of the Month competition with an average score of 58.16% - very well done. The prize for the "best regular" member goes to Paul Whitehurst with an average score of 56.95% and our award for the "Level 8 & Under" Player of the Month goes to Lyn Parker with 54.18%. Well played to all....please see David for your prizes

We have set the limit for players eligible for this award by using the EBU's National grading system - all members of Grade 8 and under qualify - bear in mind that players' grades can go up & down during a month, so we are taking the ranking on the last day of the month as the member's official grade for that month. 

If you do not know your NGS rating - you can find it on the EBU website in the "NGS" section. Type your surname in the search box once you get to the page & it should appear. Players that are ungraded or suppress their rating won't be included in the monthly competition although will still qualify for the main player of the month. If you can't find it, we have a list of all registered members' ratings - just email catherine@acesbridgeclub.co.uk and I will find it for you.

Good Luck & enjoy your bridge in 2020 !

BRIDGE SESSIONS CANCELLED
BRIDGE SESSIONS CANCELLED

We have taken the decision to close the club with immediate effect.

We consider that the age profile of the club is such that we are likely to have many members who are amongst the most at risk and we do not know how many of our members have underlying conditions which would enhance that risk.

We believe that we cannot take chances with the health and wellbeing of our members

As the situation develops we will update our web pages so please watch this site for any further news

Player of the Month

Player of the Month

You will have seen the player of the month section in our "Competitions". It is automatically updated each time a session is added by the scorer.

The rules have been simplified - you no longer have to play with different partners, it is worked out on the average percentage achieved & you must play a minimum of 4 sessions ( 5 if there happen to be 5 Mondays or Wednesdays in the month)

NEW - For players that attend every session in a calendar month - there will be a special prize of a free session in the following month for the person with the best percentage. Also there is a prize for the best performance from the players rated NGS 8 or below. 

So, keep an eye on your position in the table. Winners of these 3 prizes will be announced on the website & prizes presented on 1st session of the following month, when it all starts off again

There will also be a special prize for the overall Player of the Year - this is awarded on placing points rather than percentage...8 points for a win, 7 for second place etc
