Lisvane Bridge Club was founded in 1984 - this year is our 40th anniversary!!. Club bridge sessions take place in the Lisvane Community Centre on Monday evenings and Tuesday afternoons; The new facilities are excellent and we are sure, when you come along, that you will be delighted with the refurbished Centre. Our bridge is in the new Main Hall - a large, bright airy room with very good lighting, heating and ventilation. This could be the best venue for bridge in Cardiff. There is ample car parking set out in marked bays. MPs have been awarded again from April 1. Realbridge sessions run online on Thursday evenings and are open to players from any club - you do not need to be a Lisvane member to play. The only requirement is that you pay,as a non-member, a £5 annual fee for these sessions + the £1 per session table money.

The preferred way to pay your table money is through a quarterly standing order for your estimated quarterly bill. All that might be required in the future is a rare standing order adjustment. Details are under Payments in the Main Menu. This is easy for you and for the Treasurer. There are two counters (see Menu) that record your charges for F2F and Realbridge sessions respectively; these allow you to keep track of your credit position. Alternatively make a manual transfer quarterly. If you do not have bank transfer facilities pay cash to a friend/relative and ask him/her to do the transfer for you. As a last resort you can pay cash to the Treasurer who will credit the account.

Results both off scratch and with handicap are posted on this site. You need to have a partner for all sessions.

Monday and Tuesday

On both Monday evenings and Tuiesday afternoons we play 20-22 boards per session.

A Genuine Bridge Experience

We use genuinely random hands produced using our "Duplimate" dealing machine.  The additional benefit is that all deals and their results can be reviewed on the web site. A quick look at the red boards indicates where pairs have gone wrong and the green boards indicate where pairs have succeeded  - a genuine aid to improved play.

One Winner Movements

All our movements generate one winner so that competition is with all members of the club present.  For small table numbers this is through a Howell movement. For larger table numbers Mitchell movements are used with the appropriate use of arrow switches. While not perfect, this does achieve a high degree of genuine competition,  and any imperfections decrease as results accumulate with time.

Scoring

Scoring is with 7 inch tablets which give a high degree of visibility and send all the results entered, by WiFi, to a central computer. We use Bridgescore/Bridgepal as the scoring progam, acknowledged as perhaps the easiest and most innovative program available. The results are then available for viewing on this web site on the evening of the event. All results are published both without and with handicap values.
