In 2018, Claygate will start rolling out the wireless scoring system called BridgePal, which runs on smartphones and tablets. The implementation team today consists of Gavin Wilson and Carol Wildig, but more volunteers will be very welcome. We will provide as much help and training as each North needs to enter the scores into the handset.
Further information about BridgePal can be found here.

Following a recommendation in Tuesday's Times, I spent 20 minutes watching the likes of Andrew Robson and Zia Mahmood playing through a couple of bridge hands in a free recording at http://newtricksbridge.club/watch.html . Similar in style to the way that the BBC2's 'Master Game' tackled chess in the 1970s, it features understandable expert commentary while each bid and card is played, together with a narration supplied by each player afterwards to give you an idea of what was going on in their mind. (It was comforting to see one grandmaster make a hash of the bidding on the second hand because he had mixed a spade in with the clubs in his hand.) There are a number of episodes available.
We play Duplicate Pairs each Monday, except Bank Holidays.
The club is affiliated to the EBU, so every session attracts Masterpoints for the highest-ranked players on the night.
Play starts at 7.30 pm, but all players must arrive by 7.20 pm.
A session normally consists of 24 boards, and it should be over by 10.30 pm.
Visitors are very welcome.
We always play at Claygate Centre for the Community, Elm Road, Claygate KT10 0EH.
Commonly called the 'Day Centre', its phone number is: 01372 463476 Map
The cost per player, which covers both play and refreshments, is:
£2.00 for members, and £3.00 for visitors.
As the club is approaching its limit of 110 members, we may soon have to introduce a waiting list for membership applications.
