St Andrews Bridge Club
St Andrews Bridge Club Closure

As a result of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) Situation, SBU and Government Guidance, the Committee of the St. Andrews Bridge Club have decided to suspend all play until further notice.

The committee are continually looking at ways to operate some online bridge organization for the club. Please see details of the initiatives in the news items below. 

It is not yet clear when we will be able to meet at the New Club to play bridge again, but provisionally, the start of the 2021-22 Season will be on Tuesday 7th September 2021 when we will hold the delayed AGM for 2020-21, and run a Pairs evening afterwards. We will endeavour to continue to hold some of the club tournaments online, if it is appropriate to do so.

Above all the committee hopes you will stay safe and well during the outbreak. We look forward to welcoming you back to bridge at the St. Andrews club as soon as it is safe to do so.

 

 

St. Andrews Bridge Club on BBO

Following the SBU initiative to establish a Virtual Bridge Club on BBO, St. Andrews Bridge Club has become the first Bridge Club in Scotland to successfully host a Pairs evening on BBO as part of a new virtual club. 

Every Monday at 6:55pm, St. Andrews Bridge Club will hold a pairs evening on BBO, playing 18 to 22 Boards in a Mitchell or Howell movement for Members and their Guests. Table money will be BB$3. SBU and BBO Masterpoints will be awarded to the top third of the field. 

If you have not already joined us, and are unsure how to get started, please contact Howard Greenwell (howardgreenwell@gmail.com) to help guide you through the process of registering your BBO name and loading your account with some table money. 

Registration for the Monday event will start at 4:55pm on the Monday, so you need not make a decision about playing until near the event. The results from each Monday evening event, will be published on this site almost immediately, once BBO makes the results available for download. I can then convert them to the correct format for Bridgewebs, and send the results file to Gordon Milne for Masterpoint processing. 

Look forward to welcoming all to the St Andrews Online BBO Virtual Bridge Club. 

Howard. 

Bridge Club Live - St. Andrews Pairs

A St Andrews Bridge Club area on the Bridge Club Live (BCL) site has been set up from 5th January 2021, and all those who have taken out membership can put their names down on that list.

We will run a BCL pairs evening every Tuesday going forward, until we are able to meet in the New Golf Club again. If you are interested in joining, then please let me know. We already have 22 members at the start of January 2021.

The cost of playing on BCL is simply the cost of your membership of BCL. This works out at about £7 to £10 per month, depending on how long a membership you subscribe to (cheaper than table money). There is no payment to St. Andrews Bridge Club.

It is easy to get started, you and your partner simply enter the St. Andrews Club Room, and sit down at a table together at 6:30pm on Tuesday. Bridge will start automatically at 6:45pm.

Bridge Club Live have indicated that from the beginning of February, they will rebate to St. Andrews Bridge Club £1 for every table that plays in our Tuesday evening pairs. So all the more reason to come and join us on Tuesdays to help the St. Andrews Club prosper. 

Bridge Club Live can be found at www.bridgeclublive.com.

Should you have any questions regarding Bridge Club Live, and/or wish to join those intrested, then please contact me directly: howardgreenwell@gmail.com or 01334 473963 or 0775 356 2268.
