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.

IMPROVE the ENJOYMENT of BRIDGE for ALL PLAYERS

Below you will find a few of the current HOT TOPICS in the form of questions

Have your say on any theme - or simply treat the questions as a survey by replying yes/no to each*

 

1. Zero Tolerance - Fact or fiction at your club?

2. Is there a Hideous Hog in your club?

3. Would children under 14 be allowed to play in your club?

4. Should prize money be awarded at regular club tournaments?

5. Are psychic bids outlawed at your regular club tournaments?

6. Do beginners have to reach a qualifying standard before they can play in your club tournaments?

7. Have you - or any of your friends  - left a bridge club due to the bad behaviour of other members?

8. Do you prefer to play bridge at home with friends - or in clubs?

9. Could your club and/or Federation do more to improve your enjoyment of bridge?

10. Do you have a theory on why some of the most hideous of hogs at the bridge table are often the nicest people one could meet away from the table?

   

 

One final question exclusively for members of Aces Academy:

 

Would you like us arrange monthly or ladder competitions for any of the following games? 

 

Rummikub, cribbage, backgammon, dominoes

 

Games that can be enjoyed by any and every generation
 

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

 

Did you know that totally BLIND people play bridge tournaments - and WIN

 

I would not be asking that question if I hadn`t been beaten by a blind pair using braille cards

That extraordinary feat - a blind pair finishing ahead of over 100 experienced and full-sighted pairs - was achieved at a festival in Roquebrune-sur-Argens (France)

Absolutely incredible!

A truly humbling and heartening experience for me and all the other participants

 

Yes, the pleasures of bridge are there for ALL to enjoy
