Cleverly Teams
CTL Arrangements for 2019-20

Richard Harris is standing down as coordinator, and to him we must express many thanks for the revival over the past two years.  His report on the CTL to the AGM can be found here.

The Cleverly Teams League will  now be organised by Ian Sidgwick (contactable still through ctl@gcba.org.uk) on behalf of the County. It continues to aim to provide friendly teams bridge, including an introduction to that for those who haven't played that form of bridge before. 

There are no planned changes to the rules for the new season, and they current version can be found here. (Last changes 29 Aug 2018).

We will continue to capture the results using the EBU's League system - instruction on how to use that can be found by clicking here.

The 2019 winners were again the Wanderers (in Div One), but now North Cotswolds (in Northern Division), and  Acolytes (in the Southern Division).

CTL Arrangements for 2018-19

The Cleverly Teams League will continue to be organised by Richard Harris (ctl@gcba.org.uk) on behalf of the County. It continues to aim to provide friendly teams bridge, including an introduction to that for those who haven't played that form of bridge before. 

The rules for the new season are here. (Updated 29 Aug 2018).

We will continue to capture the results using the EBU's League system - instruction on how to use that can be found by clicking here.

The 2018 winners were Wanderers (in Div One), Pear Jars (in North-East), and  EDF Energy-B (in North-West) and Nympsfield (in South).

Promotions to Division One will be determined once we see the size of the entry for the new year.   If you have played in this before - do encourage your friends to join in.

Just to clarify two questions which have been raised -

  • matches remain of 24 board, played in two sets of 12 with a change of opposition at half time, and the VP scale has not chnaged from previous years.
  • although some teams have club names and club affiliations and were formed within clubs, teams can be formed by any group of interested players.  Substitutes can be used freely if that makes arranging matches easier, as long as the substitute is not a core (nominated) member of another team in the same Division - as that could create divded loyalties.   A substitute can sub for many teams if wanted.
