Online or Face to Face. Where does bridge go from here?

How can we play competitive F2F bridge NOW?

Will bridge clubs survive?

Will table fees increase when clubs reopen?

When will “clinically vulnerable players” be able to safely return to the bridge table?

In the perceived absence of any sensible and useful guidance from bridge administrators, I endeavour to reassure players via my diagnoses and prescriptiona for resolving common concerns. You can read my analyses on the “Keep Bridge Alive” page.

Bridge in Homes
Mecca in a bridge desert

Fuengirola in southern Spain is a bridge mecca for Europeans. All Europeans, that is, except the Spanish themselves. For them it is a bridge desert. And the nearest oasis is 100 kilometers away

 

Fuengirola Bridge Project

If you live in or near 

FUENGIROLA

 

 

To enable aged and infirm bridge players to play competitive bridge

when they are no longer able to visit a club  

 

AND

 

To enable Spaniards of all ages to learn and play duplicate bridge.

Whether at school - or elderly/disabled and confined to their homes

 

 

 

It is NEVER too soon or too late to be able ro enjoy the pleasures of playing bridge

 

 

Explanation:

In a nutshell, it is a version of a simultaneous competition. A "mobile" bridge teacher visits individuals in their own homes and provides a prepared series of boards to play at their own speed in a relaxed environment. The visiting teacher will then bid and play three of the hands on each board. He will also record the player`s score for each board.

Over a period of two months, the results are then compared to those obtained by players in other locations participating in the scheme. Not only can the individuals get a genuinely fair result, but those results will enable them to be given a club rating which more fairly reflects their standard than those based on more traditional methods of classification.
