Latest Advice from RealBridge

RealBridge have asked us to send you some more advice about iPads that have been upgraded to iOS 15.

There is a problem where some iPads freeze when they arrive at a table. To solve this problem, RealBridge have updated their advice for iPads with iOS 15, and there are some more settings changes to make.

 If you have an iPad, and you have iOS 15, please follow the instructions here:

     https://realbridge.online/media-support-ios-15.html

 Even if you did this during the past two weeks, please do it again, as the advice has changed.

 If you have been in contact with RealBridge since Wednesday 8 December, they may already have asked you to make these changes.  If so, you don’t need to do anything.  If you are not sure whether you have the latest settings, either go and check whether your iPad has the recommended changes, or contact RealBridge to check.

 RealBridge are very happy to help people with this. If you need help, please contact them at:

    Email: support@realbridge.online

    Telephone (UK): 0794 232 2209

    Telephone (non-UK): +44 794 232 2209

Thank you to the brilliant helpers!

A lot of people have been turning up early to help set up the room. This has made life so much easier for us.

However, there have been more people than actually needed!

Rather than draw up a rota, I have created pseudo calendar events where people intending to come early to help set up can put their names down. Once there are two or three, we don't need any more. Hopefully this will ensure there's always a couple of helpers but not too many.

Our plan is to have Christmas Swiss Pairs on Saturday December 10th

PUT IT IN YOUR DIARY NOW

Bank Holiday Thursday 2nd June

We will be open as usual ♥ 

Welcome to Rugby Village Bridge Club, an English Bridge Union affiliated duplicate bridge club for Rugby and surroundings. 

Up to April 2020 we grew to 200 members. Up to 220 players take lessons, came 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; 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.

Let's all stay healthy
Let's all stay healthy

The level of cases of Covid in Rugby is really falling

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.
