Welcome to Orillia Duplicate Bridge Club - Guests always Welcome
New Game

We hope that everyone enjoyed the holidays. There are a few new things happening at the club. Firstly we have added a 299er separate game in addition to the open game on Thursdays starting right away. If you require a partner for either game please do not hesitate to call us. We cannot guarantee, but we will certainly try. You can always try just coming to the club but you are taking your chances of not playing. Also, we are no longer requiring proof of Covid vaccinations to play at our club. Please mask if you wish….and stay at home if you have a cold or are not feeling well. Let’s try to keep everyone safe this winter! Please note that game fees are increased to $6. starting immediately.

Scoring differences

Scoring Differences Between “No Play” Boards, “Average” Boards, and “Passed Out” Boards

·         Sometimes, usually because of slow play, a table isn’t able to play one of their boards. In terms of scoring, a “No Play” board simply erases the board from the computer’s calculations for that pair and the players’ score is unaffected. This is also more or less what happens when a pair misses boards because they have a sit-out.

·         When a pair is assigned a score of “Average” on a board, perhaps because their table has fouled a board, then each pair is awarded half of the matchpoints available for that hand. This will affect their overall score. If, for example, they are doing well with a 60% game to that point, an average board will push down their percentage – and vice versa.

·         When a board is passed out, the players' scores for that board depend on what happens at the other tables. A passed-out board is a zero, falling between the N/S pluses and the E/W pluses. If you are E/W and all the N/S pairs at the other tables go plus, by passing out the board you would get a top and your opponents would get a bottom.

Bridge rules when arriving
Bridge rules when arriving

Please make every effort to be at the club 10 minutes before game time to allow the director time to get the game set up and started on time.

Please remember to turn your cell phones off (offenses will be penalized) and keep discussions quiet.

Bridge hands are a timed event.  It is unfair to all if constant slow play is used.  Play with speed each round to avoid late plays or other penalty situations.

Be aware of the club's Zero Tolerance Policy that is posted on this page.
