Bridge Evenings at the club premises are presently suspended in view of the COVID-19 situation.  We hope to resume them when appropriate.  HOWEVER, we are now running sessions on Realbridge - see the centre column for details.

Welcome to Ditton Bridge Club
CORONAVIRUS - TEMPORARY CESSATION OF FACE-TO-FACE BRIDGE EVENINGS - BUT NOW REALBRIDGE

It is with regret that, in the light of the present legalities, risks and uncertainties regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, the Committee have decided to cease holding bridge sessions at the Club premises with immediate effect.  We will continue to monitor the situation, and will resume face-to-face bridge evenings when it seems appropriate to do so. HOWEVER...

WE ARE NOW operating through REALBRIDGE on alternate Tuesday Evenings at 7.30pm next on 14th September 2021, Host usually available - for more details see below.

The committee is in the process of considering resuming face-to-face sessions. PLEASE respond to the questionnaire if you have not already done so.  

REALBRIDGE SESSIONS

Many people will know Realbridge already; but, for those that don’t, it’s an online platform where you can see your partner and opponents and talk to them as in face to face bridge. The bidding is more realistic than, say, BBO. Realbridge uses the camera and microphone and speakers from your computer so it’s essential to test the equipment in advance. Modern computers should be fine, but Ipads need to be less than five years old.  You can test your equipment at RealBridge with Real People please scroll to the camera section and you will see a link to test your equipment. For Realbridge there is no username and password as in BBO. The day before the session we will send a link that you click through and just join the game.

We are very grateful for the assistance which we have received from our friends at Caterham BC (and who hold sessions every Tuesday) but are now running our own sessions.

The pricing is £3.00 per session or £10 for a set of four.  Obviously, we cannot collect table money on the night, so we need to make other arrangements. Please endeavour to pay by transfer into the bank, if that is not possible please hand the cash to Red when the opportunity arises. The bank details are:

Ditton Bridge Club Current Account

Sort Code: 09-01-51, Account Number: 73098304

The evenings will be EBU sessions with masterpoints and NGS.

Undos are allowed in the bidding for genuine misclicks (either agree with opponents or call the director) but not in principle during the play (however if all decide to agree then call the director for their discretion).

If you have any questions or queries (technical or otherwise) please contact John Dagnall (02083984463 dagnall1@virginmedia.com) or Peter Tingle.
