When will the Club reopen for F2F Bridge?

The Committee have been discussing when will we be able to return to the Community centre and under what conditions.

At the moment we have decided we shall wait and see when the Government decides we can return to "normal" life and what conditions the Community Centre lay down.

It is likely that we shall have a mixture of F2F Bridge on one day/week (probably Tuesdays) and online Bridge. Members will then be able to choose what they feel happier with.

However, we shall let you all know what is decided by writing to all those who have ticked the box allowing emails. (See note on LHS about your details).

Watch this space.


Welcome - Bridge for all players

Petersfield win Solent Cup

Petersfield recently won the Solent Trophy, the final match in a three way competition.

It was a tight match and competition. We were a bit down to Basingstoke at half time but in the end prevailed by 9 IMPs. Which was enough for 12-8.

So both Petersfield & Basingstoke finished on 21 VPs and Newbury 18VPs.

But by the split tie procedure Petersfield retaind the Solent Trophy, having won the head to head.

Congratulations to Christine Ray and Steve Preston, Andrew Doye and Lilias, Mike and Gabriel Hurst and Tony Truluck and Stewart Burnett.

One amusing hand of the night.

Tony is dealt A72, AJ3, 6, AQJ863

While considering his bid, he notices his computer has decided to pass!

LHO has passed and partner has opened 1NT (13-15). Too late to ask for an undo.

So to make up for his unintentional underbid he now transfers into C and punts slam!

It makes, everyone else is in 3NT, +10IMPs!

Congratulations on winning HIOW on line league Division 2

Congratulations to Petersfield N who won the HIOW on-line league division 2, which means three Petersfield teams in division 1 next time!

A slow start meant defeat in round one, but four wins followed. This put the team of Nick, Dennis, Rick and John in third place with two to play against the two Basingstoke teams lying first and second!

Two more wins made worthy champions, six wins to one.

Well Done.

Petersfield win HICKO

Congrtulations to Lilias Lamont, Phil Asquith, Neil Cripps and Abigail Rowe on winning the County HICKO Competition agaginst Winchester.

That is the seventh time we have won this trophy in the last 13 years.

Well Done All.
