More experienced players are encouraged to play in the GREEN section as are those players who want to play against the more experienced players.

An experienced player partnering a beginner or improver should register the pairing in the GREEN section.

Twice weekly online tournaments aimed at members of Castle Golf Club and their guests, will be held each Monday commencing at 9:05pm and Thursday commencing at 2:00pm.  Registration commences two hours before play.  It is adviseable to register early to avoid a last minute rush and possible congestion.  To register a pair, both players must be logged in to BBO (see more below).  No joker rota for the moment.


This tournament will be run within www.bridgebase.com


To register to play you must be a member of BridgeBase (BBO).  Registration is free, just go to the URL and follow the instructions.  There is no charge for playing the weekly tournament.  It is suggested that anyone planning to play should first become familiar with the ins and outs of using BBO.  This can be done by simply playing CASUAL Bridge on the site on a number of occasions.  

We now have our own club within the BBO framework.  This is for us to use as we wish, within the parameters laid down by BBO.  The club ID is cbai125467. Registration instructions can be found in the Hints & Tips tab.  


In addition to this guide you may find the aeticles referenced in the tabs on the left side useful.  Please remember that there is no formal help service available, the system is intuitive and it is intended that each individual become self-sufficient through their own learning.  There is a help function within BBO.  In addition to that, members are welcome to contact Bernadette Murray or Paul Williams who will be happy to answer your queries and questions.
