Our popular short duplicate Monday Afternoon last week, nine tables played a Web Mitchell movement. Robyn Crighton & Janette Palmer got the best North / South result with 72.32; East / West was led by Pat Stubbings & Paula Pugh with 59.82.

Nicky & Jim Bainbridge led a five table Three Quarter Howell movement on Monday Evening with 69.27.

On Tuesday Afternoon eleven and a half tables played a two-winner Mitchell movement. Lo Tolbutt & Jim Bainbridge led a closely fought North / South with 55.23; East / West was topped by Roger Morton & Judy Clarke with 61.25.

Suit Responses to 1NT Openings was the topic on Wednesday Morning and Negative Doubles were the coaching topics this week on Wednesday and Thursday Morning. Players practised a variety of situations, talking about the outcomes on each board.

On Thursday Afternoon seven and a half tables played a two-winner Mitchell movement. Lyn & Bill Stubbins led North / South with 57.29; East / West was topped by Margaret Aitchison & Brian Mawby with 56.75.

January is a great time to take up the game again. Our Build Your Skills course of lessons starts 28th January.

Welcome to Rugby Village Bridge Club, an English Bridge Union affiliated duplicate bridge club for Rugby and surroundings. We offer a range of courses of lessons from absolute beginners to advanced. You can practice/improve your bridge at one or both morning themed practice sessions. You can 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 on Monday Evenings when we have a blue-pointed championship pairs competition. 

Since April 2010 we have grown to 200 members offering a range from nurture for the novice right through to opportunities to play for the club. 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.

Build Your Skills Starts Tuesday 28th January 10.00

The course is for players who have taken our Bridge 1 course, or have some bridge experience whether it’s duplicate, "kitchen", rubber or Chicago.

The lessons take you through scoring, card play and the most commonly used parts of ACOL.

 There are ten, two hour, sessions, given weekly. There is a break in half term week. You will collect colour notes, and homework quizzes to store in an A5 binder.

During the course our Wednesday Morning Friendly practice follows with a practice on the lesson topic.

You can take binders, or other notes, or ask for help from the mentors or other players. It’s relaxed and intended for you to practice what you are learning. You don’t need a partner, there’s always someone to play with.

Use both the lesson and the practice session to get the best out of your learning. By the end of this course you will be able to enjoy Wednesday morning practice, and to consider trying one of our competitive sessions or competitions.

Complete the form to express an interest.
