Congratulations to our 2019 Club Champions Sandra Capper and Marelle Irvine.

Sandra and Marelle qualified top from East West qualifying round and found themselves in one of the strongest final fields for some time. The fact that they were able to hold their form throughout the two weeks makes them deserving champions.

Second place went to the pairing of Maureen Wright and Christine Chandler with Gretha Kroll and Lesley Robertson close third.







Green Plate 2019

North/South Robin Suttor & Gail Mann


East/West Janette and Sam Stephens

Both our winners in the Barbara Green trophy just failed to qualify for the championship round.

Again this year this event was keenly contested but again we had a number of pairs who did not play with their original partner and thus did not qualify for the trophy. Having said that the fields were very competitive and the results fairly close. Great to see a husband and wife combination come through successfully ( and still talking).

Congratulations to our winners. 








Congratulations to Val Heferen and Brian McCarney on their success in this years Sparkes Cup.

This event has been in existence since 1984 and its history and previous winners can be viewed on the History page of the web site.

In looking back this is Val's 3rd appearance on the trophy while Brian has featured on one previous occasion. However it is their first win as a pair.

With a percentage of 62.96 they just got home by less than 1% from Lesley Robertson and a visitor Ivan Macleod. This year over half the field achieved over 50% which is no mean feat given the strength of the participating pairs.

Again congratulations to our winners

Many of us only use the web site to obtain results of a day’s bridge. However its uses go far beyond just results.

Next time try the following:

Open results page for the event you want.

Click your name.

This now shows which pairs you played certain boards against and your result. At the same time you can view the hands and traveler details on the right of the screen.

Now click on “players” (left hand side above chart)

Click compare.

From the players list click the pair you wish to compare your results against.
You can change the compare selection as often as you like.

The Matrix box in the heading shows everyone’s match point results for every hand. A bottom result will show “0”. The top result possible on any board is obtained by the number of times it is played less 1 and then doubled.

You can quickly see just who played a hand or hands well and compare what you did.

If you really want to maximise your analysis and experience you can download an application which will allow you to replay the hands on your computer. At the top left hand side is an icon basically green. This will tell you how to set up BSOL (Bridge solver on line)
