Frome Bridge Club

Welcome to the Frome Bridge Club web site. The club is affiliated to the EBU and aims to provide friendy but competitive duplicate bridge for members and visitors.

Boards are electronically duplimated and Bridgemate scoring is used meaning that results are available as soon as the last board is completed.

Frome is a pleasant Somerset market town and is situated 12 miles South of Bath.

The club meets every Monday at 7.00pm in Wesley Methodist Church at Wesley Slope, Frome for Face-to-Face play.

In addition, we provide lessons followed by assisted play on Thursday mornings from 9.30 to noon.

Best Behaviour at Bridge

Asking for explanations and not bidding.

Do not ask what a bid means unless you are intending to bid. Asking for explanation without bidding could, in certain circumstances, be construed as passing unauthorised information to one‘s partner. If one doesn‘t intend to bid, questions of the opponents, should be made after the auction has concluded.   


What are Master Points and the Ranking System?

Master Points(MP) and the Ranking system

After each Monday session the results for the evening are uploaded to the EBU.

The EBU allocates MPs to each player in the top ranks for that evening

depending on the number of tables in play.

For example, on Monday 3rd Sept. there were 8 tables so MPs were awarded

to the top three pairs for both N/S and E/W.

The ranks start with:

Local Master              100 MPs

Club Master                 200 MPs 

Area Master                500 MPs

District Master           1000 MPs

County Master           2500 MPs

Master                        5000 MPs
and then upward
