Newsletters

On the first weekend of the month we publish a newsletter aimed at players in our area. It just got a new name: "Heart of England Bridge".

The RVBC members only newsletter is planned for the second and fourth weekends of the month with maybe a bonus in five weekend months.

New Normal News (planned to appear during the third weekend) was launched very successfully last weekend and some of you have signed up for it. I am happy to add anyone else to the list so please contact us throught this site. Do pass it on to people belonging to/playing in/running other clubs.

BUMPER! BAMSA!
BUMPER! BAMSA!

Between 28th June and 1st July the 4th International conference about the impact of bridge on society was delivered by the BAMSA (Bridge as a Mind Sport for All) team based at University of Stirling.

"The conference will highlight the latest findings from BAMSA’s research network. It will showcase the ways in which academic research can inform government policy and influence the grass-roots development of bridge as a mindsport."

The conference brought together bridge players, academics studying sociology and quite a few people who were both. 

The programme and many prerecorded offerings are available at the link below. Recordings of the proceedings are due to be added.

Two videos recorded before the proceedings that might interest bridge players....

A gender question: 

Why we Need the Under-26 Women Category    

Sofie Græsholt Sjødal (Under-26 Bridge Player and Bridge Teacher, Norway)

There might be a few reasons why the under-26 women category should be abolished. However, there are many more reasons why it should not. Sofie Græsholt Sjødal will tell you about why we need the category and how it can help to limit gender differences.

We pride ourselves on the friendly and supportive atmosphere at all our lessons, practice and competitive sessions; 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!♥
