NEW WORKSHOP SESSION!
NEW WORKSHOP SESSION!

Every Wednesday morning, Richard will be hosting a workshop at the club from 10am. The hands are all real hands dealt in recent online events which Richard selects based on a different theme each week. Sometimes the focus will be more on the bidding, sometimes on the play. At the start of the session, there will be a short introduction to the topic, followed by 12 practice hands in a mini duplicate. Everyone plays the same hands at the same time, so that at the end of each round, there is a chance for a group discussion. Handouts and/or commentaries will be available each week.

If you don't have a partner, come along anyway - hosts are always appreciated too, please sign up on the website

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.

 

 

 

25 Jan: Opening 2C and the responses  (Richard)

1 Feb: Counting losers in suit contracts (Tim)

8 Feb: Landy (Marianne)

 

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.
