F2F Bridge & Government Regulations 07/10/20

The EBU has so far been unable to get advice from any government bodies giving details of how or when bridge clubs might be able to play face-to-face while following the regulations. Public Health England have told us that if the games are in a community hall or similar then this guidance may apply, particularly section 3c. PHE have also said “Advice regarding a venue being Covid Secure can be obtained through the Local Authority for that venue and will differ depending on the venue, its size and function.”

The EBU will not be organising any face-to-face games or competitions for the foreseeable future. Whilst clubs are responsible for making their own decisions and arrangements, they should do so in full knowledge of the latest general and social distancing regulations.

CHAMPIONSHIP PAIRS SUNDAY 28TH MARCH

The regular Sunday All Comers Pairs has been discontinued as we move towards the Summer months, and we shall now offer our usual pairs and teams competitions on an approximate monthly basis. We shall also run a third season of the virtual league.

VIRTUAL TEAMS LEAGUE

Season 2 of the Virtual League has now been completed and all those who participated enjoyed their matches. Congratulations to Rueful Rabbits and Three Plus One who won their respective divisions. Thank you to all those players who entered the event. I was delighted that all the eligible players who played in season 1 entered for season 2 and a new team also joined. So an especially warm thank you to Bill, Coz, Margaret and Mike, who became known to each other through their mutual love of the game to make a team. I hope you enjoyed the experience.

I am now taking entries for season 3. The more teams who enter, the more divisions we can make and the greater the probability of playing against players of a similar standard. I am also hoping to field a Novice Division for very inexperienced players. If you would like to play but are concerned you may get a drubbing each match, please bear this in mind. If we can get about 5 or 6 such teams of, say about NGS level 2-6, we can field such a division. If there are players who would like to enter, but do not have a team, please let me know so that I can match you up with others. I am hoping to be able to set up the matches by mid March, so an early response would be much appreciated. It is expected that the league will run from Mid March until the end of May.

CHAIRMAN'S REPORT
..... see less

Warmest greetings from the volunteer bridge players who run the Lincolnshire Contract Bridge Association! We hope very much that you are well and also able to enjoy bridge, whether it is playing online, reading books and articles or discussions to improve partnership understandings. Very many bridge players all over Lincolnshire, indeed the country, miss the enjoyment of playing Bridge in person.  Because of Coronavirus,  a new term emerged for how we played our much-loved game, Face-to-Face bridge, often shortened to F2F bridge. ..........

Bridge activities for Lincolnshire players

There has been a small explosion of interest, which is growing, in all aspects of bridge, be it playing, learning, collaborating, beyond any previous boundaries of club county or country.  New partnerships and new teams have sprung up.  Players who have never been online before are discovering its pros and cons and making it work for them. ..........
