ECATS Children in Need Simultaneous pairs

We are holding two sessions to raise funds for Children in Need, one on Realbridge on Friday 6 November, and one on Bridgebase Online on Monday 9 November. For both of these sessions we ask all players to make a donation of at least £3.00 per player direct to our club account. Please include your surname and ECATS as the payment reference.  The local results will be available on the club website, and there will be a link on the results page to the national results on the ECATS website.  We would like to encourage all members to play in one of these sessions to support this worthy cause at such a difficult time.

Realbridge duplicate pairs sessions - EVERY FRIDAY - Now at 3PM - Finish by 5.55PM

From Friday 16th October Table Money for Exeter Bridge Club RealBridge Sessions will be £1.50 per person

All players will be contacted in due course with details on how payment should be made

Payment will NOT be taken on the RealBridge platform and will likely be charged in arrears

Some of our club members have been involved with the development of a new way of playing bridge online.

Called RealBridge, this system allows you to see and talk to the players at your table, which gives it a real "club" feel – all very different from the existing bridge websites which rely on messaging and feel much less social. All you need to play is a desktop, laptop, or tablet which ideally has a WebCam so that other players can see you when you play (the webcam is not essential but does make the event more sociable). The system is very user-friendly, and even if you have never played before online you should find it very easy to use. All our players are welcome to play in all RealBridge sessions. 

If you feel unsure whether you have the technology and skills to play, please contact Maureen Dalton or Jean Harrison who should be able to give you any necessary advice and reassurance. If you would like to play but do not have a partner please contact Maureen or Jean who may be able to find you a suitable partner. You can also enter individually and the director will assign you a partner on the day if there is one available.
 

You can enter to play here - registration is NOT required but gives us an idea of how many will be playing

RealBridge Session Link Changed on 11th October @11:44am
