Season 2020/21
Welcome to Risborough & District Bridge Club
Virtual Club for Risborough

The Risborough on-line bridge club for playing duplicate pairs (on Tuesday afternoons at 1.30 pm) is hosted by  Bridge Base on Line (BBO).  It requires membership of BBO and intended participants will need to open an account with BBO for the 'table' fee (3 BB$ per player per session). This is very easy but email me if you need help. Those members whose BBO user names are known to me have been  emailed with further information. All players who have been authorised (see below) to play in the sessions have been emailed. You need to log on with partner (go to 'Competitive', then 'All Tournaments' and search 'ris' ) after 11.30 to register for a particular session. Please register by 1.15. You may then  log off  and then log on again by 5 minutes before the tournament is due to start. Please note that guests are welcome!

 If you are interested and have not yet told me please contact me as soon as possible:

 ( - mobile 0787 668 4442) in order that I can enter your BBO user name  on the list of players authorised  to play (an essential security measure).

We also have teams of four (free) each Wednesday at 6.45 pm. Please let me know if you are a pair and  wish to play.
