23rd March

On Monday Afternoon last week, four tables played a Howell movement. Graham Clarke & Chris Longthorn were runaway winners with 73.81; Pat Stubbings & Paula Pugh took second with 60.71. Brian Mawby & Graham Clarke led a three table Full Howell movement on Monday Evening with 56.00.

On Tuesday Afternoon three tables played a full Howell movement. Jim Bainbridge & Lo Tolbutt took the top spot with 60.00.

On Thursday Afternoon two tables played a full Howell movement. Terry Leary & Chris Longthorn led a pleasant last face to face afternoon with 62.50.

Due to the current situation, there will be no further face to face bridge for a while.

We are still keeping our June 13th summer swiss pairs and following usual sessions in the diary.

In the meantime we have registered as a club on Bridge Club Live, the UK's longest established and leading online bridge platform.

We are here to help members get online.

Welcome to Rugby Village Bridge Club, an English Bridge Union affiliated duplicate bridge club for Rugby and surroundings. We offer lessons from absolute beginners to advanced. You can improve at one or both morning themed practice sessions. Play at a short session on Monday Afternoon popular with newcomers and social players. Our Tuesday and Thursday Afternoons are full sessions and a little more competitive. Our strongest players also appear at Monday Evening our blue-pointed championship pairs competition. 

Since April 2010 we have grown to 200 members. Up to 220 players take lessons, come to practice or take part in competitions every week.

We pride ourselves on the friendly and supportive atmosphere at all our lessons, practice and competitive sessions; the excellence of our coffee, tea and biscuits; and our clean, well lit, comfortable venue with 70 off street, well lit parking places. We don't mind whether you have a high National Grade, no National Grade, or you don't know what that is!♥  

Beginners are always welcome, contact us to find out how we can introduce you to our wonderful game.

Our membership year ends on March 31st.

Our membership grow to over 200 this year for the first time.

Members are:
1) Entitled to substantial discount on table money

2) Entitled to purchase ten of our tickets at a further discount

3) Entitled to a further discount when purchasing ten tickets by bank transfer. About 85% of sessions are paid for using tickets.

4) Members can also enter our club competitions, and they can represent our club in external competitions.

5) Members are registered with the English Bridge Union as members of our club, and receive EBU member benefits.

6) The results from our competitive sessions: Monday Afternoon, Monday Evening, Tuesday Afternoon and Thursday Afternoon, are all submitted to the EBU so that players can qualify for Master Points and for National Grades.

This year the membership subscription will increase to £12

BUT if paid before 1st April is subject to a £2 discount,
so you can pay the same amount as last year i.e. £10.

You can pay your subscription by cash or cheque at the club and collect your membership card at the same time.

You can pay your subscription by bank transfer and collect your membership next time you go to the club. Membership cards for renewing members have been printed and are available at the club.

Table money, and ticket prices, will increase on 1st April by 25p. I don't like putting the fees up, but costs do increase all the time and our club's main goal is an enjoyable session, and I don't want to reduce our quality. The old rates will apply during March.

Thank you for your membership, for making the club a safe and pleasant place to play, for recommending new players to join, and beginners to learn. We are bucking the trend in bridge by thriving and that ensures the future of the club and the game.
