End of Year Bridge Party

Some 60 players joined  Ned Paul, Victor Lesk, Kit Jackson, and Phlip Watson at Young Chelsea Bridge Club in Shepherds Bush on Saturday December 8th at our joint End of Year Bridge Party.

Players enjoyed a fun Saturday evening of bridge, food, a quiz and good company!  There was both social bridge and duplate bridge in parallel and a hot buffet supper.  The winners of the duplicate were Fay Lucas and Frederique Courreges.  A big thank you to Natalya and Tamara for doing the catering, which was outstanding!

Teams in play on Sunday during the recent New Chiswick BC "Blue Pointed" Bridge Weekend

New Chiswick Bridge Club's first venture into hosting higher level events was a great sucess.  We joined forces with one of London most promiment bridge clubs, the Young Chelsea BC - now located in Shepherds Bush, to stage a Pairs event on Saturday July 2nd and a Teams-of-4 event on Sunday July 3rd 2016.  

Thirty pairs of all standards played in the pairs on the Saturday which was run on the Swiss principle - at each round you play against a pair with a similar score to your own.  This format sorts the players very effectively and the winners were the favourites on paper, Allison Green and Nicola Smith.  Earlier this month Nicola played on the winning English Ladies team at the European Championships held in Budapest and our event was honoured by her presence. 

The following day nine teams played a complete round robin teams game.  The winning team included a quartet of prominent players -  Janet de Botton, Nick Sandqvist, Thor Erik Hoftaniska and Tom Townsend

Thanks to Nick Sandqvist of YCBC for co-hosting the event, and to Nicole Cook for directing both days' bridge.  Full results are in the Results Calendar - click link opposite.

2nd Anniversary - August 4th 2015
2nd Anniversary - August 4th 2015

8½ tables in play in our 2nd anniversary duplicate

We marked our second anniversary in style with a glass of prosecco each and a slice of celebration cake - home made by bridge director Ned Paul. There were 8½ tables in play and the winners were Maggie Christmas & Julian Hutson. By chance we also had 8½ tables on Opening Night two years ago and there were nine players who were in both games. The Club is healthy and we look forward to growing further in our third year.

In the Ladder Competition Chuck Campbell maintained the lead but Eugene Hertzmann had a good game to stay in contention for the end-August prize.

February 3rd 2015

Tonight we hosted a heat of the EBU National Pairs, so welcome to all the guest players who came in for their chance to qualify for the next stages of that competition.  But we were boosted also by local new players.  Thank you to all and it looks like the attendance is in good shape.   Father and son Patrick & Oliver Lawrence were our winning pair tonight by a head from Jane Williams & David Thompson.  In the Ladder competition Adrian Haberberg had a good session with Mike Landon and closes right in on the absent Sue McLaren for the lead.  All in all a good night.
