The number of matches and the fixture list will be decided  when entries are complete.

We wish them an enjoyable and successful season 

Friday Movement - an Apology
We specify movements for all numbers of tables so that pairs meet as many opponents as possible and  avoid playing the same opponents more than once.  Unfortunately on Friday 18th September the Director accidentally started the wrong movement.  Although he quickly realised the mistake, once play has started the movement can not be corrected, so pairs met two sets of opponents twice each.
We apologise for the mistake and will try not to let it happen again

Members or anyone making enquiries about any aspect of the Club's online bridge
are welome to contact any of the four SBBC Company Directors.

It is unlikely that we will be playing bridge in the barn again before the New Year
We thank all those members who volunteer as standbys, avoiding the need for robots.
We are now seeking standby pairs until the end of the year

Please contact Evelyn Crossley (details above) if you can help.

Bridge Classes, 2020/21

New classes are starting in September for all levels of players:

Beginners, Improvers, Consolidation, Card Play and Defence.

Please contact Chrys Poole 01628 440600 or 
for further details

There will be a course to suit your needs.  Currently our courses are held online,
however when the Covid situation changes they will take place at SBBC.

Psychic Bids

The rules about psychic bids and the Club's attitude towards them apply to online bridge in the same way as in face-to-face bridge

A Psychic Bid (or psyche) is one which deliberately mis-describes the strength or distribution of a hand in a way which is very different from the system or conventions which a pair claims to be playing.

Psyching is not against the laws of bridge but our Club strongly discourages them. This applies especially to the more expert players, who must not try to take advantage of their greater experience by using such methods.

 We ask all members to please call the Tournament Director at the time or at the end of a session if they consider that someone has psyched.
