Ipswich & Kesgrave Bridge Club

Thursday and Monday at 7:00pm

Thursdays: players have a choice of venue, online on BBO or face-to-face in the Ropes Hall, Kesgrave Community Centre, Ipswich. Both sessions start at 7:00pm and although the results are not merged, all participants play the same deals. At Kesgrave we run a cashless system for collecting table money and players are billed for sessions played at the end of each month. Visiting players are welcome and must complete the Visitor Information Form.

Mondays: we run a Relaxed Pairs on BBO starting at 7:00 pm with follow-up notes on the deals, distributed by email, usually within two days.

Before you play your first online game with us you need to register your details, using the forms, linked from the "Online Bridge Club" (top right). Links to the joining instructions can also be found there.

If you need a partner, check our Partnership Desk. Non-members can be contacted by emailing Anne for their contact details – before 1:00pm on the day in question if possible.

Any questions, about any format, please let us know. We're here to help.


New Teaching Initiatives for 2023

The club's teaching team have been highly active during the autumn providing opportunities to play bridge to over 100 players. There are learning opportunities for club players, intermediates and beginners: see below for more information.

Last night - 25th January - Conrad Simons officially joined the teaching team and led his first class of 16 new students.  Well done to Conrad and to his students.  We hope you enjoy your course.

EBU Announcements & Rules for Strong Openings

Changes from 1st September 2022

The EBU has made changes to announcements and the rules for strong openings. The new announcements include the following:

  • Responder's transfers into a minor after a 1NT opening.
  • Wide-ranging (but non-forcing) 1NT responses to an opening suit-bid.
  • Two-over-one responses which force to game.
  • Transfer responses to a prepared club.

There is an EBU guide, "Announcements Summary", on what to announce and alert.

There are also new rules on strong and non-strong opening bids, see the first link above or the Blue Book [PDF] for complete information.
