Claygate now uses a 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 are 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.

Club Championships

Claygate Bridge Club runs two main competitions during the year.

Rules of 2017-18 Club Championships and beyond
  1. The annual Club Championship is held on the second Monday of each month from August to February inclusive. That gives each qualifying pair seven opportunities to participate.
  2. There will be one winning pair on each Club Championship evening. This will usually entail a Mitchell movement with an arrow-switch towards the end.
  3. The Club Championship is a Pairs League which can only be won by members. But guests and visitors may participate in any Club Championship evening.
  4. Qualifying participants must be members of the club throughout the August-to-February period. That is, if a player is not a member of the club by the second Monday in August, or has let their membership lapse before the second Monday of February, that player cannot qualify for the Club Championship.
  5. The score achieved by each qualifying pair on a Club Championship evening is the ranking obtained on that evening. For example, they score a '1' if they came first, or a '2' if they came second.
  6. There will be no upward adjustment of the rankings achieved by members when non-members have achieved a higher ranking on any of the seven evenings. Retrospective upwards adjustment will not be applied to earlier rankings in the current championship, should a member die or otherwise let their membership lapse before the second Monday of February.
  7. Each pair’s best four scores are used to calculate their final position. These four scores are then added together.
  8. The overall winners of the Club Championship are the qualifying pair with the lowest total score.
  9. Should play on any of the championship’s stated dates have to be cancelled for any reason, a new date will be decided by the Committee.
