Cambridge Friday Bridge Club will foster an environment that is friendly, courteous and conducive to the enjoyment of playing a good standard of bridge.
It is expected that all members will:
Greet others in a friendly manner prior to the start of play on each round
Be particularly welcoming of visitors
Be polite and ensure that the bridge is enjoyable for yourself, partner and opponents
Enjoy the company as well as the game
Make their convention card readily available to their opponents
Give credit at the end of a hand when opponents have bid or played well
Refrain from criticising their partner or opponents or gloating over good results.
During the bidding it is expected that:
Bids that should be announced are done so quickly
Bids below 3NT that should not be taken at face value are alerted
Any questions asked about alerted bids are done so in a neutral way, e.g “Can you tell me what that means?” rather than “Is that showing clubs?”
Players do not make frequent unusual bids that could be classed as “psych bids”.
During the play it is expected that the person playing dummy takes a completely passive role and does not do anything that could be construed as suggesting a line of play to partner.
If there is a need to call the Director then this should be done calmly, the situation explained in a neutral way and the Director’s decision accepted without dispute.
