The EBU operates a National Grading Scheme which runs in tandem with the Master Points system. The NGS scheme now covers the last 2000 boards you have played resulting in a current assessment of your standard of play. The scheme is accessed from the EBU website under NGS & then clicking Nottinghamshire.

New click and tap options for bidding and play
  • The former two-taps method has been removed and replaced with two different options for different devices.
  • Double-tap (tablet style) now emphasises the bid or card when selected with a single tap, as seen below. Tap the bid or card again to play. Tap elsewhere to cancel.

  • Double-click (mouse style) emphasises a bid or card when the cursor is moved over it. Two fast clicks are required to play a bid or card.
  • Any input style can be used on any device. For example, a desktop user can use tablet-style double-tap. The names are simply suggestions.

The committee has decided to charge £1.50 per session which covers the cost of UMS (EBU fee), Realbridge and also other fees which the club has to pay for. This fee is in line with that charged by other clubs.

Ideally we would like members to pay in advance by bank transfer to the club's BUSINESS account, “The Retford Bridge Club”,code number 60-17-28, account number 06803946, and we suggest you pay in multiples of £1.50. NB note that the account has a The at the beginning.


By paying in advance you reduce the work for our treasurer who would otherwise have to invoice you at the end of each month. This is important so that Roger can trace who has paid. Alternatively, contact Roger Stock at for others ways to pay or any other committee member. Also email him on that address to let him know you have paid by bank transfer.
