Welcome to Richmond BC - England's largest affiliated club
What a lovely note from ED SCERRI
What a lovely note from ED SCERRI

I was a little dubious about returning to face-to-face bridge, not only because of covid issues, but also because I dislike playing in games with small fields where boards are only played four or five times. I was very pleasantly surprised therefore when I showed up at Richmond on a Friday afternoon, and found eleven tables in play, a very pleasant atmosphere, and excellent covid protocols in place. I congratulate Julia and the trustees on their efforts and hope that full confidence will soon return to those 'holding off' so that the club may return to full capacity.

I, for one, am looking for an excuse to make another trip to Richmond soon 😀

 All the best, Ed

We're delighted to be trying a new short and crisp learning format on Thursday mornings at 10:30.  Check out Tim's video to see how it works: 

 - in advance of the session, Tim Chanter will issue a short quiz posing some bidding or play problems with a weekly theme

 - during the 1-hour session, participants log on to Zoom and Tim will share a BBO screen and discuss as a group how to bid and play the boards

 - following the session, Tim will send out hand records with suggested bidding and play tips

If you'd like to attend the first of these in the series 'Counsel for the Defence' on 25th November, please sign up here:

SUPERVISED REFRESH AND PRACTICE
SUPERVISED REFRESH AND PRACTICE

This is a Supervised session at 10:30 am on Tuesday mornings. Led by our excellent teachers, it is aimed at refreshing your knowledge on a particular topic that you may find tricky or on which you may like to refresh your memory.

 

 

30 Nov: Pre-emptive Openings & responding to pre-empts (Richard)

7 Dec: Bending the rules when responding in a suit  (Marianne)

14 Dec : Leading through strength into weakness  (Tim)

This is not a lesson or seminar. Before each session, you will receive notes. The 'Refresh and Practice' session will start with five minutes of Q&A (Questions and Answers) on the topic. This will be followed by the bidding and play of 12 specially prepared hands for you to practice. You do not need a partner.

These sessions will require registration:  Please click the appropriate session to book by 4 pm on the day before the session.

UNDO POLICY
UNDO POLICY

The club allows undo requests for genuine bidding mistakes made as a result of a mechanical error, not a lapse of concentration or forgetfulness, and only when the request is made prior to their partner's bid at the latest.  We do not allow undos for playing.

Any awkward exchanges should be referred to the director. 

Members are reminded that you can change your settings to ensure you double click to make a bid.
