Best Behaviour at Bridge
Best Behaviour at Bridge
Orpington Bridge Club encourages its members to follow the EBU guidance on Best Behaviour at Bridge, taken from The White Book.

"Bridge is an extremely enjoyable game. Courteous behaviour is an exceptionally important part of that enjoyment. 
This guide serves as a brief reminder of how to behave at the bridge table. We are sure that all players naturally follow this code of conduct, but there are times when concentration and pressure can take their toll and it is for these situations that we issue this reminder.
* Greet others in a friendly manner prior to the start of each round.
* Be a good 'host' or 'guest' at the table.
* Make your system card (i.e. convention card) readily available to your opponents and fill it out completely.
* Make bridge enjoyable for yourself, your partner and opponents.
* Give credit when opponents make a good bid or play.
* Take care of your personal grooming.
* Ensure that your mobile phone is turned off.
* Enjoy the company as well as the game.
Remember that it is rude to criticise your partner or opponents in public, to be less than polite at the table, to gloat over good results or object to a call for the Tournament Director or to dispute or argue about a Director's ruling.

Please call the Director if you think you have been affected by bad behaviour. You will be helping others as well as yourselves."...
