Face-to-Face Bridge and Covid

Special arrangements have been made in the barn, as recommended by the Government for such indoor meetings:

  • Masks are not mandatory but players may choose to wear one
  • Hand sanitiser, masks and disposable gloves are available.
  • The room is well ventilated
  • There are fewer tables in the barn so that they are spread out.
  • Social distancing is encouraged.
  • There are fresh bidding boxes at every session. Players may take their box with them if they choose.
  • Boards and bidding boxes are ‘rested’ for at least 72 hours between sessions
  • No handling of money.

Not Feeling Well - Keep Away!

Players should not come to the barn if they are unwell or have any symptoms.
Anyone who develops any symptoms after playing should contact us straightaway
so that we can tell other players.

Names Please!

This is a reminder that the Club expects that everyone playing must show their full name
(First and Surname) in their profile.
As a Club site, members should be able to see who they are playing against.
May we remind some of our newer players and a few more experienced ones that they should comply.

Undos in Bidding

Undos in Bidding
The Club now allows Undos for misclicks in the bidding, but not in the play.
As soon as you realise that you have misclicked you may ask for an Undo. 
The opponents will usually agree, in wh
ich case you may change your bid without penalty. 
If an opponent objects, or in case of doubt, the Director should be called.
This brings us into agreement with most other Clubs

Please note that Undos are permitted only for genuine misclicks. 
You may not ask for an Undo if you realise that you made the wrong bid.

Undos are still not permitted for misclicks during the play

Burnham Bridge Club are continuing to disallow all Undos

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