Online Duplicates

Our Tuesday night duplicate has taken off very well.  We are really pleased to see so many of our regular Bramhall and Cheadle members playing on-line. This is a great opportunity to play against old friends and meet a few newcomers from ‘the other club’.  We hope that it will not be too long before we can meet again face-to-face.

Just a reminder, you only have to register once and then you are OK for any Tuesday. If you have not already done so, please put your name on your BBO profile so your opponents know who you are (if you need guidance about 'How  To' on BBO look at theses videos: How To On BBO). After the boards are completed each round, please have a chat if time permits.

The results are all on the website together with the ‘leader-boards’ to be found under Competitions on the Menu.  Chris Hine and Stephen Ward are presently topping the field.

The duplicates are at present free games, with the club paying the UMS to the EBU.

Our directors, Victor, Espen, myself and occasionally Adam are donating their time and expertise to setting up and directing the duplicates, scoring and uploading the results to the website and EBU. Many thanks to them – we appreciate their contributions to the club.

You are welcome to play on a Tuesday with a visitor but after one game, if they plan to visit again, visitors will be asked to pay a one-off fee of £10 and so become members of the club.

Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Regards

Alec

Junior Pairs News

Congratulations to Sam and Will Wakefield who played throughout July and August in the BBO Junior Pairs Series organised by Cambridge University Bridge Club in conjunction with the England under-20s Squad.  They finished a creditable 7th in a strong field.   They are now starting their final year studies for GCSEs and A levels for which we wish them well….and hope that they will have some time to join us again in the Club for duplicate bridge.

Details can be found here: BBO Junior Pairs Series

Welcome Message

Welcome to Bramhall and Cheadle Hulme Bridge Centre. We are a few weeks ahead of schedule but timely as Cheadle Hulme are moving to the newly refurbished facilities at Bramhall Village Club on Tuesday August 4th - when we will be playing our first on-line duplicate. We look forward to your support of our on-line duplicates in the coming weeks and to seeing you for face-to-face bridge before too long.

Regards Alec Smalley - Chair & Steve Mattinson - Vice Chair
 

Members News

We are merging the 2 clubs a bit earlier than envisaged - the first duplicate of the new club will be Tuesday 4th August on BBO. This is the same day as the physical move in preparation for the resumption of Face 2 Face bridge - lets hope it's sooner rather than later.

On Tuesday, photos will be posted of the new facilities - many thanks to Ross Worthington for organising all this during lockdown, a marvelous job.

The "Steering Group"  for the merger has been Julia Bannister, David Barton, Barbara Lewis, Steve Mattinson, David McNiellie, Anne Thornton, Ross Worthington and myself - thanks for all the contributions.

There is also another side to a modern bridge club - all the technology required to run, score and upload online duplicates and administer the website. I wish to thank all the contributions from the "Tec Group" of Espen Gisvold, Victor Ridding, Richard Sinton, Anne Whitehead and myself. Also on a personal note Adam Wiseberg for his invaluable contributions.

At present we have an interim committee which includes Chair - Alec Smalley, Vice Chair - Steve Mattinson, Treasurer - David McNeillie.

A registration form for online BBO duplicates - hopefully more than one a week in the future - is above on the right. Please register so that you are available for any forthcoming event that you may wish to play in. 

Best Regards - Hope to see you soon

Alec
