Gail and Roy Rodgers promoted to District Master

Congratulations to Gail and Roy Rodgers on  being promoted to District Masters in the June promotions.. 

Well Done.

Betty Bennet Teams Trophy. Congratulations

Congratulations to the winners of the Betty Bennett Teams Trophy, a reformed competition for members no higher than the rank of Tournament Master, who were Gail and Roy Rogers with Duncan Wright and Mike Bracy.

They led at half time and were never threatened winning 7 matches, only losing to last year's winners and the 'non eligible experts'. All teams won at least two matches, so success all round.

A record attendance of 10 tables (The only team event on a Monday) since COVID meant a movement of 9 rounds in two stanzas, two boards a round, and sharing across the room. So the organisation was tested to the full. Our thanks to John Pearson.The plus was that tea, coffee and biscuits could be had at the change over! The evening ended at 10pm with a real buzz.


Following their victory over Mayfield B, Petersfield A (Owen Leigh, Mike Kinsey, Steve Preston & James Clark)

are now through to the quarter-finals of the NICKO.2024

Well Done and good luck in the next round.


On a Tuesday, after the Bridge, between 6 and 8 people go onto Weatherspoons just round the corner from the Club to discuss the hands and the different bids.

Also with a pint of beer recently at 99p, what more can you ask!!

It's most enjoyable and if you wish to join them, please do so.

Anyway, this reminded me of a joke about Weatherspoons which was told to me on their birthday which I hope you find amusing.

A group of people in their 40's decided to celebrate and go to Weatherspoons where the waitresses were very shapely and wore mini dresses.

Ten years later when they got to 50, they met up again and decided to go to Weatherspoons because the waitresses were easy on the eye, and the service and food were very good, with an excellent choice of beers.

Ten years later when they got to 60, they met again and discussed where to celebrate, and after a lot of talking to and fro, Weatherspoons was chosen, because there was ample parking and the ability to have a quiet meal at a reasonable price.

Then they got to 70, and again discussed where to celebrate and it was decided to go to Weatherspoons because there was easy access for wheel chairs and toilets for the disabled.

Then they made the mile stone 80th birthday and talked long and hard about where to go and finally decided on Weatherspoons because they had never been there before.

Update on our annual competitions

We are now over half way in all our annual competitions and therefore time again for my end of year predictions!!

In the Global Cup, Maureen is again leading with Pamela Evans in second place. Very confident she will retain her lead for the second year running.

Although Christine Chard and Yvette Gibbons show top of the leader board in the non expert Ladder, they have only played the once and now there are not enough times to meet the 6 played times criteria. Mike Bracey and Duncan Wright are second but there are several  others in contention so as all will soon start to lose their worst scores (over 6 times played), it is too close to call.

In the Pairs Cup, Maureen and Pamela Evans lead with Gail & Roy Rodgers second but my money is on Maureen and Pam winning it.

In the Pam Furze-Roberts Plate, Pamela is currently top with Gail and Roy second. I think Pamela will prevail at end of year.

Finally in the full Ladder, we have 2 leading pairs but again they will not meet final criteria. Mike Fithyan and Stuart Burnett are leading but Liz Senior and Tony Truluck could come through as they will soon start losing their worst scores. My money is on them winning.

Will my predictions be right or will some dark horses surge forward? Time will tell! 

PS Don't bet any money on what I say!!! If you wish to see where you are, click on the box on LHS.

Club members do well in France

Congratulations to our 4 club members who recently went and played pairs at the prestigious Deauville Bridge congress and finished high up the field.

James Clarke and Owen Leigh finished 23rd out of 188 with

Mike Fithyan and Simon J Taylor finishing 75.

A good result for them all and shows that F2F is not yet dead.

Congratulations to John Pearson and Rick Assad  on sharing third prize in a recent Dorset green pointed Swiss Pairs competition.

Their first match was halved followed by four victories out of the next five rounds, two of which were against Grand Masters.

Ten tables made for a very pleasant day. Six eight board matches, a start of 1200, lunch break consisted of an excellent carvery with completion by 1830.

An excellent day all round.

Well done both.
