Ask the TD to announce at start of a session
We are affiliated to the English Bridge Union (EBU) and under the terms of that affiliation all members of the club are automatically enrolled as members of the EBU. We submit a record of the players who compete in each of our qualifying* duplicate sessions and pay a small levy to the EBU based on the numbers participating. This arrangement is their Pay2Play Scheme.
Members who participate in at least 12 duplicate events per year will be entitled to the full benefits of EBU membership including a free EBU diary and the bi-monthly magazine called English Bridge. They will also be entered into the EBU Master Points award scheme and will be eligible to enter any of the open tournaments or competitions organised by the EBU, or the other Home Unions (i.e. Wales and Scotland) and the various County Associations.
You can find more information about your EBU membership on the EBU Website
The EBU launched a new Website in May 2013.
The website has a private area that can be used to:
To access the private members area on the EBU website you will need your EBU number and your password which should have been sent to you by the EBU with a welcome letter. If you have lost, mislaid or or forgotten your EBU number the club can help you but we cannot assist with missing passwords which are only known to the EBU. If you are having difficulty the following page on the EBU website explains what can be done.
Would members please note that the EBU website is independent of the club. Personal records on the EBU website are not maintained by the club so we cannot implement any change of address etc. Members should advise the EBU, either through their website or directly, of any changes to their personal contact details. If you access your records online you will be given the option to allow the club limited permission to update some of these details in the future.
"When you play in an event your expected score is based on the average of your and your partner’s current grades and on the average strength of the players against whom you are competing. The amount by which you over (or under) achieve this score is used to determine your ‘session grade’ for that session."
When we play a single winner movement the calculation effectively compares your overall score with all of the other players in the event taking into account their current grading and how well you and your partner might have been expected to do. When we play a two winner movement the comparison is only against those playing in the same direction as you.
