Welcome to Bayside Bridge Club
BRIDGE IS BACK ON!

 

Yes, we're back playing face-to-face, but we are under harsh Covid capacity restrictions,

so it is imperative that you book in either by email (baysidebridgeclub@gmail.com) or text (0493 112 412)

Masks are compulsory, as is applying hand sanitiser before each round.

 

 

Why Play Bridge?

Researchers have found some very good reasons to play bridge:

♣ Those who play more frequently score higher on cognitive tests.
Bridge games offer intellectual and social stimulation on a routine basis.
An area in the brain used in playing bridge stimulates the immune system. Researchers suggest that is because players must use memory, visualization and sequencing.
♠ Any activity from which you derive pleasure prevents the onset of classic depression. Players are less likely to be depressed; hence, they sleep better, tend to exercise more and have a better life in general.
♣ Multiple changes in lifestyle (e.g. cognitive training and social activity, two of bridge’s chief benefits) can improve memory and thinking in those at risk for cognitive decline.
Playing bridge can help older people retain their mental sharpness.
♠ The frequency of playing games is associated with greater brain volume in several regions that are affected by Alzheimer’s disease.

Warren Buffet and Bill Gates are considered to be two of the smartest entrepreneurs in America. Both are also very accomplished bridge players. Buffett once said that he wouldn’t mind going to jail — but only if he had three cell mates who were capable bridge players.

“Bridge is more than just a card game. It’s a cerebral sport. Bridge teaches you logic, reasoning, quick thinking, patience, concentration and partnership skills.” Hall of Fame tennis star, Martina Navratilova.

Summarized from an article in the AARP Bulletin:
“A Bridge to Brain Power” March 2015

 

Ongoing COVID restrictions

 

When we are back playing our wondeful game, we need to remain vigilant about remaining Covid Safe. 

So, the following restrictions apply:

  1. Capacity numbers remain in place.
  2. Facemasks are mandatory.
  3. QR check-in is mandatory.
  4. Sanitising before each round is mandatory.

These restrictions will continue until further notice.

So, it is imperative that you book in by texting us on 0493 112 412 or emailing us on baysidebridgeclub@gmail.com.  We will reply with a notification that you are either confirmed on the playing list or are unfortunately on the ‘reserve list’.  If players cannot play on the day (or restrictions are eased) we will contact those on the ‘reserve list’, to say that they have been moved onto the playing list. 

As a reminder, here are our session times:

Some Session Time Changes at the Hampton RSL

 

As a result of the Hampton RSL wanting to better utilise their bistro and its offerings, they have asked us if we could make the following changes to our session times:

  1. Sunday - from 13th June, our Sunday Duplicate session will start at 1PM rather than 1:30PM.
  2. Tuesday Evening – from Tuesday 15th June, our Supervised sessions will start at 8PM, rather than 7:30PM.

Please note that we are making these changes to accommodate the RSL, who are a wonderful landlord and a fantastic, supportive partner in the growth of bridge in our area. 

The changed arrangements will be reviewed in a few months.

In some exciting news, starting very soon, the RSL will be offering a Bridge Friday Lunch Package.  Keep a look out for the details on the RSL website and around the venue.
