Competitions are running
Please note that to align with Surrey Bridge, our year long competitions now run from 1st May to 30th April
Competition Conditions of Contest
The Nancy Beaument Trophy - Club Championship Pairs:
The winners of the Club Championship Pairs competition will be the pair with the highest average percentage score between 1 May & 30 April. If there are fewer than 8 full tables at any sessions, the result for that session will not count. Should there be a tie; the winners who have the highest percentage score during the competition will become the Champions.
Each partnership pair must be full members of the Bourne Bridge Club, Farnham and must play together at least eight times on Thursday duplicate evenings to qualify.
The winning pair will be invited to represent the Bourne Bridge Club, Farnham in the Mary Edwards Cup which is the SCBA final for Club Pairs Championship winners. If the winning pair is not able to play on that day, the competition runners up will be invited to represent the club.
The Hutton Trophy
The Hutton Shield is awarded to the pair which attains the highest percentage score on Thursday duplicate pairs’ evenings in the period 1 May to 30 April. Both players must be full members of the Bourne Bridge Club, Farnham. In the event of a tie, the trophy will be shared by the winners for an equal period until next awarded.
Daphne Baker Trophy
The Daphne Baker trophy is awarded to the winners of our annual "pot luck" teams event.
Sally Young Trophy
The Sally Young trophy is awarded to the team who win the club winter league competition (see below).
Winter Teams League
This is a sociable competition with matches played mainly online using RealBridge or in players’ homes at mutually convenient times. It is open to full members (plus others if agreed in advance by the organiser) and affords a good opportunity to get to know each other. Four members of a team take part in each match, so each team member is not required to play in every match (assuming your team is larger than 4 people). IMP scores are used in matches which are converted on a Victory Point scale.
When the final results have been received, there may be a playoff to determine the winners or resolve ties - as determined by the organiser.
The Winter League will commence during September and entries must be received by 15 August. All matches are played on average once a month and (including any playoffs) must be finished before the AGM. The organiser will decide how any unplayed matches are scored in agreement with the committee chair.
The winning team will be invited to represent the Bourne Club in the Wanborough Cup which is the SCBA final for Club Championship Team winners. If the Club’s winning team is not able to play on that day, the runners-up will be invited to represent the Club.
Please note that this competition will be registered with the EBU and masterpoints may, therefore, be awarded at the end of the tournament for the league section (but not for any play-offs, unless the organiser decides to do this separately by submitting the results of the entire final to the EBU as per a normal club night teams session).
This is not a club competition, but just a list of members who have played at least 16 times in BBCF duplicate sessions when partnering another club member over the course of the year, so that you can see how you are doing in the grand scheme of things.
This is not a club competition, but just for your own use, if you wish to use it. Where we have scores from RealBridge on our website, then the name you have typed into RealBridge will be included. If that differs from your name in the club scoring database, then you may appear twice, or more, on the list under variations of your name. Moving forward, we will not be including the Monday evening sessions hosted by Farnham Bridge club on our website as you can see the full results on the Farnham webite.
Annual Prize Giving
Trophies and Prizes for all events will be presented at the Club AGM.
