Plea for substitute players: Due to the fixed movement it is essential that all entrants commit to all sessions.  There are a couple of pairs who cannot yet enter because they will be missing a session and it would be a pity to lose them.  Last minute subs are also sometimes required due to illness etc. If you and/or a partner are available to act as a sub for any sessions (especially October 24) please let Graham know, and in which Divisions you would be comfortable to play.

Cafe Bridge 2024

Forty keen bridge players were seen wandering the streets of Coventry on 11th June. It was an enjoyable day despite the cold wind and drizzle - is this really flaming June?
All enjoyed 5 rounds of bridge at 4 different restaurants in Belgrade Plaza, and were treated to a great lunch by all the venues. (The Belgrade, Telegraph Hotel Restaurant, Bella Italia and Pizza Express)
It was a very enjoyable day, superbly organised by Sue O'Gorman, with Graham in charge of the movement and the scoring.

The top scoring pair, Alan Ward and Michael Sallis, took the winners' trophy, whilst Mary Wood and Ann Ridgway claimed second place. Full results are available on the website.
Thanks to everyone involved with the organisation of the event and to the players for making it so enjoyable.

                              

Cashless Payments

We want to make payments and deductions as easy as possible, allowing us to concentrate on playing bridge. Whether you are playing in person, or online, your payment for the session will be handled electronically. C&NWBC uses BridgeWebs to record participation in games of bridge, which then results in deductions from your C&NWBC account balance.

The preferred method is via electronic advance payment, either an ad hoc bank transfer or a regular standing order to the bridge club account. Alternative methods of payment can be arranged with the Treasurer if necessary.

A single payment account can be used for a couple’s play at the club.

Full details are available at Cashless Payment Process (updated 1st April 2024).
