It's time to sign up for the Vincent Gummer 2020!

The draw for the Vincent Gummer handicapped knockout competition will take place on 31st January 2020.  You can enter online (click here) or list your and your partner's name on the list available on the notice board.  This is a fun competition suitable for all because members' handicaps are used to calculate the winners of each match.  Play on a normal club evening arranged between the two pairs - the winning pair goes through to the next round.

The Bridge Library

We have a significant number of bridge books donated by members past and present. There are titles of interest to all levels of ability and experience. You can browse all the stock on the Goodreads platform where the club has a page, www.goodreads.com/ipswich-and-kesgrave-bridge-club.

If you would like to borrow, drop the 'Librarian' a line, email is on the contacts page.

Link for Enthusiastic Learners

A new initiative has started to encourage young people and all learners to become more involved in bridge.  Have a look at this website http://www.newtricksbridge.club/
You need to explore it to see what is available there but an interesting start is to watch a 'You Tube' recording (looks like being the first of a series) where experts play and there is an accompanying commentary that talks you through the thinking of people like Andrew Robson and David Gold.   Worth a look!

Want to improve your bidding?

Each week, Chris Green sends out 16 hands where you are invited to consider the bidding sequence in each case.  He collaborates with a volunteer team of highly experienced bridge playes to find the best solution for each hand and later in the week, the possible solution/s are published.  To take part, all you need to do is to send Chris an email (click here) expressing your interest and you'll be added to his list. All he needs is your email address.  This is a service Chris provides for his class of learners and he is very happy for others who are interested to take part.

The Club's Objectives

You can find the club's objectives in the 'Information' section of the menu on the left.

The Vincent Gummer Draw will take place on 31/1/20

Please enter on-line OR add you and your partner's name to the list on the notice board.
