Welcome to BELFAST U3A BRIDGE GROUPS
RESUMPTION OF FACE TO FACE DUPLICATE BRIDGE ON FRIDAY 9th SEPT

 

We plan to resume normal play in St. Annes Parish Centre on Friday 9th September (10.00am to 12.15pm approx). 

There are currently no Government Covid restrictions in place but we will be asking members to take some precautions

Don't attend if you have tested positive for Covid-19 within the past 7 days

Don't attend if you are feeling unwell

Wearing of face masks will be optional but if others at the table ask you to wear one, please do so

Hand sanitiser will be available for you to sanitise your hands when you enter the room but we recommed that you also bring your own small hand sanitiser bottle for use during play. This way we don't have to clutter the tables with hand sanitiser bottles. East - West pairs will keep the same bidding boxes throughout the tournament

The room will be ventilated by opening some windows

There will be no tea or coffee provided. You may wish to bring a small bottle of water.

You need to arrange a partner

Because, it might be necessary to restrict numbers in the room, members of the various U3A Bridge Groups will be contacted by email to help us assess how many hope to attend

The last Friday morning BBO Online Tournament will be held on Friday 2nd September. For those members who would prefer to continue playing online, there is a U3A Online Group which plays every Tuesday morning on the Real Bridge Online website (Convenors are Dolores Hutton and Sheila Bones). If it transpires that there are insufficient numbers wishing to play face to face In St. Annes on Friday mornings, the BBO tournaments can always be resumed.

10.30am to 12.30pm approx. on the RealBridge.Online website

The entrance fee is 30p
