Restarting F2F Bridge

We are pleased to announce that face-to-face bridge will recommence at Fyfield Village Hall on Thursday 3rd February at the normal time of 7.15pm. This follows the ending of the Government's 'Plan B' regulations and a reduction in Omicron cases.

Monday sessions will also recommence at 2pm on 7th February.

The Committee would like to thank you for your patience during this unexpected interruption in club sessions and we hope that no further suspensions will be necessary. Unless the Village Hall requests us to do otherwise, mask-wearing will be a matter of personal choice. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Online Bridge

Just a reminder that our online sessions are still scheduled for Wednesday mornings at 10.00 - please register early.

Unfortunately, we are unable, for economic reasons, to run sessions with fewer than 4 tables.

Anyone needing a partner for a Bridge Base Online session should contact Anne on 07713162782.

Friendly Duplicate Bridge

Fyfield, Ongar & District Bridge Club is a friendly duplicate bridge club.

We play in the beautiful village of Fyfield near to Chipping Ongar in Essex.

 

THURSDAY EVENING

We meet at 7.00pm, and start promptly at 7.15pm. Play is normally finished by 10.15pm.

(As of 16th September, our Thursday evening BBO sessions have ceased as we have returned to face-to-face sessions.)

 

MONDAY AFTERNOON (from 18th October 2021):

We meet at 1.45pm, and start promptly at 2.00pm. Play is normally finished by 5.00pm.

(Anyone wishing to continue to play online with BWS Manchester on Mondays at 1.30 will still be welcome. Please note that, as of 1st November, these sessions will be played using RealBridge)

 

WEDNESDAY MORNING

We are also currently playing online using Bridge Base Online (BBO) on Wednesday mornings at 10.00.

 

Table money is £3.00 for members (£3.50 for online play) and £4.00 for visitors. 

Annual membership - £10.

Monday Online Bridge Sessions

If you do not wish to return to face-to-face bridge, we have a standing invitation to join in with Dave Tilley's Manchester Bridge Clubs (BWS - Brierfield, Warrington, Stretford*) using BBO. NB - from 1st November 2021 these sessions will be played using Realbridge. 

Please note the session starts at 1.30 so register by 1.15 if possible please!

Any member wishing to take part should ensure that Dave Tilley has their BBO username in order to be included on the 'play list'.

Dave's contacts are: mob - 07984 529673, email - tilsit@btinternet.com.

Register in the usual way, but search 'All Tournaments' for 'Tilley' or 'BWS' rather than 'Fyfield'.

Cost will be £2.50, to be included in your normal invoices.

Please note that these sessions are billed as 'Ten-high', which means that players with a National Grading Scheme (NGS) rating above Ten (where Ten is an average percentage score of 53% - 55%) should not participate. You can check your NGS rating on myEBU. Suffice it to say that most of us are comfortably below that figure!

As ever, if you need a partner for the session, please contact Anne (07713 162782).
