Virtual Duplicate Bridge on Thursday Evenings commences at 6.45 pm and to play you need to be a Bridge Base Online member and have informed the club of your username. If you have not signed up already see the details by clicking on the tab 'Bridge Base Online' on the left hand side of this page.  This will tell you how to register and other useful and important information. BBO is the only way you can play online against other Club Members in an Ashby Bridge Club Duplicate session.

COMPETITIONS

To see last seasons winners Click on Competitions>Last Seasons Competition Winners and Runners Up

Now that the new bridge year is well underway currently with both Face to Face and online Duplicate Bridge, your attention should be drawn to this year's competition dates.

These can be found in the drop down menu under 'Competitions>This Seasons Trophy Winners and Competition Dates' on the LHS of this page and are also shown in the calendar.

The first Competition to be played this season was the Kidney Research and Heart Foundation charity pairs event. Andy Woodward and Don Davis came out top in Ashby and were a creditable 28th when compared to other clubs in the UK 

 On Wednesday 21st September we held a competition for The Gordon Grimley Trophy which was won by Andy Woodward and Robert Killip

This is also the first  Ashby Bridge Club Charity Event this year which is raising money for ENRYCH a local charity based in Coalville. It is a most worthy cause and I am sure you will want to donate either by  cash or by using the Ashby banking website.

Enrych is a charity who, for 35 years, have been supporting adults living with disabilities, poor mental health and those who are socially isolated and lonely

LCBA Competitions and Entry Forms

 

SOMETHING LIGHTHEARTED!

Most of us will have heard of the 'Rule of 20'. When deciding to open you may do so if the sum of your high card points plus the number of cards in your two longest suits is at least 20.

There is another little known rule of 160! If the ages of your opponents adds up to 160 don't underestimate their ability. 

You must have heard of the 'Rule of Eleven' ...... The inevitable trick total when you bid a slam!

Then there is the bumbling Bridge player who explained to his partner how he was improving his game... " Every night when I go to bed I think about the mistakes I made at the bridge table". "Crikey" said his partner "How do you get any sleep!?"
