Bulletin

Current Coronavirus Status: Bridge at the Club is suspended until further notice. See items on this page to play on-line.

 
 
Bank Holidays

If we are playing bridge at the Museum of Bath at Work there is no Bridge on Bank Holidays.

The only possible exception is the Spring Bank Holiday on the last Monday in May or if we are playing bridge on-line.

Sometimes its a yes, sometimes a no. It all depends on how players vote as the date approaches.

The default is no bridge. Should bridge on that date be planned, there will be a very obvious notice to that effect.

Welcome to Bath City Bridge Club
On-line Bridge

Bridge Club Live

Bath City Bridge Club is now registered as a club on the on-line bridge playing app called Bridge Club Live (BCL).  If you are a member of Bath City Bridge Club you can play bridge with a partner against other members of the club on-line, from home, and you will be able to see your results as compared to other pairs in this club. 

To use this facility you need to sign up with Bridge Club Live. 

To do this you should:

  • You should register as a member with BCL at the following web address : www.bridgeclublive.com  - you can do this by clicking here .  You must join as a full (not social) member on the BCL site by use of the tabs on the BCL Home Page: Click on Home page>Subscriptions>Price List or Home Page>Subscriptions>Buy/Renew Membership.  You can take out a monthly, quarterly or annual full membership.
  • When you are signed up you can log on to the site at www.bridgeclublive.com to begin to learn how to play bridge on the site and to join others playing bridge.
  • Once you are a full member of BCL you can register on the yourself on the BCL website as a F2F (face to face) member of the Bath City Bridge Club by clicking Home Page>Members>Clubs

To learn more about how to play in the F2F tourney please read the document that can be accessed from the menu item 'BCL F2F Tourney Info' at the top left hand side of this Home Page.

Until we are able to meet face to face again at the Museum of Bath at Work we are playing a Monday afternoon online bridge F2F tourney for members of the club who are registered with the online bridge portal 'Bridge Club Live'.  The tourney is a duplicate bridge movement.

Reserving a place for the Monday BCL Tourney

During the coronavirus pandemic a Duplicate Bridge session (or F2F tourney) for the members of the Bath City Bridge Club is played every Monday afternoon  on the on-line portal 'Bridge Club LIve'. To see details of how to play this tourney with your partner please read the document that can be accessed from the menu item 'BCL F2F Tourney Info' on the top left hand side of this Home Page.

To join the tourney you need to be a fully paid up member of BCL and a registered member or invited guest of the Bath City Bridge F2F Club on the BCL website.   In order to ensure that you get a game you need to have a named partner who is also a registered member or invited guest of the Bath City Bridge F2F Club on the BCL website and known to the organisers of Bath City Bridge Club.

For a pair of players to reserve a place for a particular Monday, one of the pair should make the reservation in the calendar by following the instructions shown in the document that can be accessed from the menu on the left of this page in the menu item entitled 'Reservation for Bridge'. If you have any problems making a reservation and need help please contact Peter Blackwood.

The BCL tourney can only manage full tables (no half table) so it is necessary for the organisers of the tourney to have an even number of pairs.  You should make your reservation for a specific Monday by completing the registration form before 12 midnight on the Saturday prior to the Monday in question.   If there are an odd number of pairs on the list the last pair to have made a reservation will not be automatically included in the tourney, but will be put on reserve.  So please make your reservation early to be sure of getting a game.

If for some reason you have made a reservation and you and/or your partner decide later that you cannot make it, then please remove your and your partner's names from the reservation list as described in the 'Reservation for Bridge' document. If it is after the Saturday midnight deadline please send an email to peterblackwood@hotmail.co.uk explaining the reason.
