The cost is the same as last year: £235pp for bed, breakfast and evening meal. There is a small deposit to pay to secure your place.

Places are filling up fast,so if you are interested, please let Pat know. You can also message her on the club's WhatsApp group.

 

PAT TWEEDLE

It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Pat Tweedle, a long-standing member of our club, has died, aged 87.

Pat was a former Chairman of Merseyside Bridge Centre and also served on the committe for many years. Among her many duties for the club, she also looked after the issuing of and distribution of masterpoints, in the days before it all became automated!

A member of the club for more than 35 years, she was a gifted bridge player and never one to complain, despite her significant health issues.

Rest In Peace, Pat.

 

Login link for Friday, 9th April 2021:

https://play.realbridge.online/ct.html?p=210409121547&q=FridayPairs9thApril2021PLAYER

PLEASE BE SEATED NO LATER THAN 10 mins before we are due to start.

There may not be a standby for this particular session. If you don't have a partner on the night, please login and check with the director.

Session opens 30 minutes before the start time. You are welcome to sit at the table and chat until we start.

The link for each session is unique - shortly after the end of play, the same link will take you to the results and hands for that session. 

The number of boards will depend on how many tables we have. It’s likely to be 20 to 24 boards and we aim to finish by 10pm.

Don’t worry if you haven’t used RealBridge before. We’d like to encourage as many members as possible to come and give it a go.

MBC members: gather your table of four playing companions and have a fun night playing up to 20 boards at your own pace. 

Login anytime between 6.45pm and 10pm by clicking on this link:

Once you log in, you all sit at the same table. That table is then yours for the evening. No moving between tables, no directors pestering you to hurry up.

NB There are no standbys, you must have your own group of four to play.

Playing In The Virtual Club

If you are missing playing bridge in the club atmosphere we encourage members, friends and partners to sign up for the two virtual club nights we are running on Monday and Wednesday evenings on BBO.  BBO has practice areas to get used to playing on line and there are helpful videos available on our site on getting started.  There is a WhatsApp group for support and finding a partner if you don't have one organised by Chris Griffin and also a partnership desk when signing into the virtual club night.  If you are familiar with BBO but just need to know how to join a club night session, Colin or Linda can help.

A few requests for those already playing in the virtual club that will help to ensure the sessions run smoothly and any problems can be resolved by 7.15:

  • Please have registered and be on line by 7.00.  If you and your partner are not on line ready to play at 7.10 you may not get a game
  • Please add your forename to your profile so that friends can recognise who's who
  • Please have your basic system on your profile
  • Please ensure you SELF alert appropriately ie Benji, weak 2s, stayman, transfers etc etc
  • Please keep an eye on the clock and try to ensure there is enough time to bid and play the hands
Charity Pairs

Thank you to everyone who took part in our recent charity sims in aid of UNICEF and to those who made additional donations. We raised £198 for this worthwhile cause.

Welcome to the Merseyside Bridge Centre

Our Wirral based club, established in 1983, is conveniently located in Prenton, Mid Wirral, just 5 minutes drive from the M53.  We play in the church hall of the Prenton Methodist Church, CH43 0RE (see the directions in Information on the left), which is situated in a very pleasant safe part of Prenton, with car parking on the church premises.

We play duplicate pairs bridge  on Monday, Wednesday  and Friday evenings, plus Tuesday afternoon (see the Information link for more details and timings), with 12 or more tables for most sessions. We also have a Chicago session on Thursday afternoon. 

Our aim is to play a good standard of bridge in a friendly atmosphere, and the club is affiliated to the English Bridge Union (EBU), with sessions directed according to the EBU rules.  The club welcomes visitors whether you are an experienced player or would just like to improve, but is not suitable for a complete novice.

  • We operate a standby system for the evening sessions, so that there is no need to arrange a partner in advance as you will always be guaranteed a game.
  • Keen players will also be pleased that the club uses pre-dealt computer generated hands.  The results are recorded on our website, so that you can see details of the hands , and how you did compared to the other pairs.

If you are interested in joining or want further information e-mail us on < admin@merseybridge.org.uk >
