Tuesday evening Beginners' Duplicate Session - Face to Face

Tuesday Evening Beginner's Duplicate Session

In October we started a supervised beginner's duplicate session for those who had completed a beginner's course but who needed confidence in playing duplicate.  The session has been so successful that we have now extended this to include an unsupervised section as well.  Many of those people who started playing with us in October have now progressed to playing unsupervised which has made space for people who have just finished learning bridge. 

In the supervised section, we have helpers on hand to support with bidding. Crib sheets can be used by the players.

In the unsupervised section, players can continue to use Crib sheets but must bid and play unaided (which includes not discussing anything with their partner during play).  Although the evening is very relaxed, we do want to encourage good bridge etiquette.

The cost is £6 per person for non-members, £4 for members, which includes tea, coffee and biscuits.

The results are uploaded at the end of the session to the Pinner Bridge Club website and players are encouraged to look back on their results to help them progress their bridge.


If you are interested in coming along on Tuesday evenings, please contact Kate Deed in the first instance by email katemdeed@gmail.com

A WhatsApp group has been set up for people to say whether they plan to come along which helps with the planning.

Ron Adam
Ron Adam

We were saddened to hear of the death of Ron Adam.

Many of our long term members will remember Ron fondly.  Age and health meant that he had moved away from the area and had not visited the club for several years.  But he was one of our longest serving members, having originally joined in 1968. 

Ron was a true servant of Pinner Bridge Club, serving on the Committee for many years and he had only recently stood down from his post as a director of PBC limited (the holding company for the property).  In recognition of his devoted service to the club he was awarded an honorary life membership.

Ron won the Middlesex pairs in 1997 (playing with Harry Ashar)

A humanist funeral ceremony will be held for Ron at Breakspear Crematorium, Monday 1st July at 3:30 pm.

BBO – Announcing and Alerting

Many players in our online games are struggling to manage self-alerting and failing to explain their bids properly.  Mark has put together a short demonstration on Youtube that shows how to do this properly and covers some common bidding sequences.
