When the bridge is too hard.....
Let's all stay healthy
Let's all stay healthy

The level of cases of Covid in Rugby has been a roller coaster ride. Cases are steady at a low level at the moment (Mid November).

We have had no transmission at the club that I know of. If you are fully vaccinated, your risk of serious illness is low. Although now usually mild, Covid can be unpleasant and take a long to recover from.

Colds and flu have been less common during the time we have changed our behaviour. We certainly haven't missed them. To keep us all healthy we propose to continue with most  health measures:

  • We will continue with the limit of five tables in each room, roughly half the pre pandemic density. We will continue with pre-booking.
  • Please consider wearing a mask or visor at least when moving around the rooms. We still have some visors for sale. WE ARE MASK FRIENDLY!
  • Stay one metre away from others ESPECIALLY if you are not wearing a face covering.
  • Only TWO people at the tea / coffee counter at any time. Come back later.
  • Players must be fully vaccinated and flu jabbed.
  • If you have tested positive, been in contact with someone who has tested positive, not feeling well, or have cold/flu/covid systems, don't come to bridge. 
  • We will keep the ventilation up
  • Keep the sanitising up and take your bidding box and sanitiser with you when moving
  • Please consider using a lateral flow test before you come to bridge.

Oh No it's not. Oh Yes it is.

From 16th to 26th Jan our capacity is reduced because of the Pantomime.
They use the Sports Lounge for dressing rooms. 

We are using the Club Room with six tables and the Changing Rooms. The changing rooms have big radiators, are well lit and relatively quiet and spacious. However, they are changing rooms.

We intended to put one table in each changing room giving eight tables. Each changing room table would be a Hesitation ("Twizzle") table. No one would spend the whole session in a changing room.

Demand is heavy so we are now planning to put two tables in one room and one in the other room raising capacity to nine. This will mean two sitting pairs and one Hesitation table in the changing rooms.
