SUPERVISED REFRESH AND PRACTICE
SUPERVISED REFRESH AND PRACTICE

This is a Supervised session at 10:30 am on Tuesday mornings called ‘Refresh and Practice’. 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.

18 May: Bending the Rules when Responding in a Suit (Marianne)

25 May: Leading through strength into weakness (Tim)

1 June - Responding 1NT - dustbin or not (Richard)

This is not a lesson or seminar. Before each session, you will receive notes and the 'Refresh and Practice' session will start with five minutes of Q&A (Questions and Answers) on the topic. This will then 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.

TWO SEMINARS ON TRANSFERS with MARGARET PAGE

Margaret Page is leading two seminars on Transfers (dates are below). They are 'Next Step' seminars, suitable for players who have completed the Beginners course. Come along to find out when should you use Stayman and when Transfers can be bid? The seminars include the play of specially selected hands and a review and discussion of the hands following play. Part 1 and 2 are quite different and can be attended separately.

"Just for you to know, once we switch to playing physically at the club, even though Richmond is not (currently) next door to where I live, I have every intention of making the trip to Richmond as I am finding the learning experience / the way the course is structured incredible and the teachers approachable and dedicated beyond expectations. There are very few positive things that have come out of lockdown but being introduced by a long-time friend to RBC is undeniably one of them. " (A Student of Richmond Bridge Academy)

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.
