Social Duplicate

Social Duplicate bridge continues at the BEDFORD on Tuesdays. You play with same partner throughout. Any single players are matched up and everyone is guaranteed a game. We normally play around 18/20 boards. Results are sent out promptly by email.

Electronic Scoring with smart phones using the free BriAnBridge app.

Notting Hill Wednesday Evenings

India Leeming has now taken over from Kit Jackson as leader of our Wednesday evening friendly duplicate sessions in Notting Hill. We meet every Wednesday at the Walmer Castle pub, 58 Ledbury Road, London W11 2AJ.

15-18 boards, printed hand records, BriAn smart phone scoring system.  Food is available at the pub and the bridge runs from approx. 7:15 - 10:00. All welcome, partners found.
BriAn Electronic Scoring

Duplicate bridge tournaments in our group use instant elctronic scoring, thanks to an app called 'BriAn'. BriAn stands for "Bridge on iPhone and Android") and uses mobile phone technology to replace traditional tabletop scorers or paper scoring. Players can use their own smart phones or other devices such as iPads or android scoring tablets to record their scores.

We believe BriAn is a very player-friendly system that has advantages over other systems. When results are entered for each deal, the next screen shows the full lay-out of the deal, the available tricks in each suit and a full travelling score slip in a single screen. Results of previous boards and a full table of current rankings can be accessed via a  menu. The bridge director can create and modify games, adjust scores if necessary and create final files suitable for posting to the web.

If you have a suitable android or iPhone you can become a scorer simply by downloading the free BriAn Bridge app.  Go to the app shop on your device in the normal way and search for "Brian Bridge". It's free to install and easy to use.

You can read more about BriAn Bridge at www.brianbridge.net. Becoming a scorer is fun but entirely optional.
