Welcome to Briter Bridge 2
COVID-19

In the light of Government Legislation bridge sessions are currently suspended. Our current best estimate is that the club will open again for face to face bridge on Tuesday 20th July.  We will confirm this nearer the time. Members should have already received an email detailing the requirements for a safe return, which include not attending if you have any covid symptoms or have been in close contact with anyone who has tested positive or is awaiting the results of a test.  Face coverings will not be mandatory unless the Government has announced anything to the contrary or you are still required to wear between the main entrance and the bridge room but you are welcome to wear one if you wish. Please bring your own refreshments and the exact table money (£2 for members and £4 for visitors). There is a copy of the message here 

BRITER HORIZONS

We've put together some links to sources of advice and online activities. Suggestions for additional sources or topics always welcome:

The NHS has regularly updated general guidance on precautions to take and what to do if you are unwell. Bromley Council has advice for those self-isolating and those wishing to volunteer help.

The EBU has a useful link to sources of online bridge. If you want to play a virtual game with other club members why not register with BBO, swap user names and agree a time to play. We have already added the facility for you to share your BBO username with other members should you wish to do so. Log in to the members area and amend your account - there is now a field where you can add your user name. Look at the member list and the last column on the right contains BBO names. There is the latest version of some guidance on registering and setting up a game here. If you are looking for other members to join an online game and want an email circulated to other members please email Jan.

There is guidance on how to play in a virtual club here

There are a number of sites with free e-books.   There are some free bridge related e-books here  not all of them ACOL but worth a look.

 

 

About our club

When the World returns to normal do you want to play bridge in Bromley in a friendly relaxed atmosphere? Perhaps with a meal or drink before or after the game? We are a duplicate bridge club based in the Parklangley Club in Wickham Way, Beckenham - located in Bromley, Kent, between West Wickham and Beckenham and on the hail and ride section of the 352 bus route. When we resume operations after the period of social distancing we will play on a Tuesday afternoon and evening using Bridgemates and pre-dealt hands. Visitors are always welcome but members will take priority if there is insufficient room.  For more details and contact information click here.

About our club

We held a successful AGM by zoom where it was established that the majority of members supported the continuing closure of the club until it was not only legal but that play could resume safely without excessive precautions. The draft minutes can be viewed here

4 1/2 tables participated in a free trial of this new software which allows you to play a game of duplicate and also see and hear the others at your table. 

Thank you to the volunteers. Apologies for some of the delays. Your views on this system welcomed. If we do sign up  we recognise that some members will not have the appropriate technology and will make sure we continue informal BBO games. 

Now re-confirmed as 1-3 October 2021. For updated details please click here

The results for the Realbridge  trial game are illustrative only as not everyone played the same number of boards and we lost one player before the end but they do show it is possible to save and upload the results!
