Welcome to Hatfield Heath Bridge Club

ONLINE BRIDGE - THE CLUB CONTINUES!!

Harlow Knights Bridge Club has set up a virtual club and have kindly invited us to join them to play online.  The sessions will be on a Friday evening starting on 22nd May at 7.30 pm and should be finished well before 10 pm.

Full details: Our Bridge Clubs Online.pdf

The club will meet using Bridge Base Online.  If you are new to Online Bridge, you will find this short video very informative.

If you need further help in getting set up, email one of us and we will try to sort you out.

Coronavirus

UPDATE - COMPETITIONS

In view of the closing of the club due to the virus, the competitions have come to premature end.  Final results are now online.  We have adjusted the minimum number of events to qualify to reflect as nearly as we can,  the same proportion for each competition.  Well done to all the winners.  We will celebrate their successes at our AGM but, of course, we have no idea when that will be! 

Coronavirus update

The government is saying that the over 70’s and those at risk should either isolate or socially distance themselves (most of the members qualify in one or other category).   Both the EBU and the HBA are recommending that bridge clubs close for now. 

 

Your committee feel that, because of the close proximity of the players and the continuous contact of the cards and bidding boxes, this is a prudent precaution and so the club will be closed until further notice.

 

Most of the clubs in Hertfordshire have already made this decision.

 

The committee wish you all a safe and healthy break from the game and hope to see you in the not too distant future.

 

Best wishes

Michael

 

P.S.  For those of you that play at the Tuesday club – that is closed as well. 

About the Club
About the Club

Hatfield Heath Bridge Club has been in existence for over 40 years. It originated in the homes of a group of friends in the neighbouring village of Little Hallingbury and expanded to the well appointed village hall at Hatfield Heath.

The objective of the club is to play competitive bridge in a friendly atmosphere.  We cater for different levels of skill, with the more experienced members playing in the main hall and newer players in a smaller room of 4 or 5 tables for a few months. When they feel ready to join with the main club they are assured of a warm welcome.

We have been operating our own version of the EBU’s Better Behaviour at Bridge since opening and the emphasis being upon friendliness, our Directors are instructed to interpret the rules (where possible) in the most lenient of ways.

Getting the most from the Results

The results section of our new web site has lots of additional information on your personal performance on the night. It is obvious speaking to some of the members that they do not realise that this exists. So to help you get the most from the new results service, please click below to open the instructions on how to access this extra information.  You can also find what we used to call the 'Butler Rankings' for the teams' sessions.  These are now calculated using Cross-IMPs which Eddie assures us is a better way of doing it!
