  ♥ Club Statistics Update 26th March 2023 ♥
The focus is now on reviewing web sites that haven't been reviewed for some time instead of following up notifications of changes to web sites. Also, I am now adding new sites to the database.
This has led to identifying clubs that are defunct rather than dormant. However, it has also identified clubs that are active rather than dormant. In particular checking visitor numbers to sites has moved several from low visitor activity to medium levels of visitors.
The number of clubs in the database has risen to over 700.
The number of identified club face to face sessions has gone over 1,000 for the first time.
There is still a small shift from online sessions to face to face sessions.
Some u3A bridge sections with Bridgewebs sites have been added.
Behind the scenes, detailed data on table numbers is now being added but it will be some weeks before there's enough of it to be useful.

Kenilworth Bridge Club

Following member requests, we are starting a new Monday morning session in the Club as from March 13th from 9.30-12.00.

This will be a very relaxed session for people wanting to practice, develop their game and generally enjoy their bridge.

You do not need a partner as there will be a host at all sessions.

Tea/coffee and biscuits will be provided mid-session.

We hope this session will be popular and look forward to seeing you there.
