Gentle Pairs Bridge
Gentle Pairs Bridge

On Wednesday afternoons we run a Gentle Pairs Bridge Session starting at 1.30 pm.  These are aimed at players who are currently in the second year of classes and above or for those people who have completed all sixty lessons but are not yet ready to take the plunge into tournament bridge.

About 10-12 hands are played under the supervision of an experienced player who will help with the bidding and play.

You can come along without a partner and will either be matched up with another person in the same position or the experienced player. The session cost £3 per person. Non members of the club are welcome to come and give this a try!

General Bridge Procedures and Etiquette
  • ​​​​DO make your opening lead face down and do so before filling in your score card or operating the Bridgemate (it saves time!).
  • DO call the TD when something goes wrong.
  • DO keep your eye on the timer for your section and try to keep to time.
  • DO make sure your cards are returned to the board in the correct slot.
  • DON’T ask questions about the bidding after the auction until your partner has the opening lead face down on the table.
  • DON’T pick up your cards and return to the board until everybody at the table agrees the result.
  • DON’T pressure your opponents into accepting your interpretation of the rules (call the TD).
  • DON’T make comments about the opponents bidding or play (unless invited).
