Stirling and Union Bridge Club
Welcome to Stirling and Union Bridge Club

This is the home page for the Stirling and Union Bridge Club. The club has been formed by the merger of Stirling and Stirling Union Bridge Clubs with effect from 2nd May 2011. The site provides information on all aspects of the club, including results for previous weeks and details of forthcoming events. If you are interested in joining our club, visit our information section to learn more about the club and how to become a member.

 

Maude Binnie

We are sad to announce that Maude has passed away.  She has not played in the club recently but, for a long spell, she and her partner. Nick Miller, "owned" the Weir Kirkpatrick Trophy.

West District League

Huge congratulations to all involved.  The Stirlling team have won the league for the SECOND YEAR RUNNING!

SUBC Online Teams Competition

About a dozen of us have been playing 12 board team of four matches on BBO (during the day) and I am wondering if anyone would like to join us.

If we had 7 teams we would play 6 matches over, say, a month. With BBO being so busy, it seems that short matches played at a time convenient to the two teams involved might be quite workable.

If you would like to enter a team please contact me (aefritchie@hotmail.co.uk or 01259 751707 - I have a call blocker so please hold so that I can accept your call)

Each team would need a name (max. 7 characters) and a captain who would be the contact person (email and phone number please) and organise matches with the other teams.

Unlimited substitutes would be permitted if required.

If you have not set up a teams match on BBO I will give you details and support if needed.

If you need teammates or would like to join an incomplete team i will keep lists of available people so please let me know.

Bridge and the impact of Covid-19 - research participants wanted

We hope you might consider participating in this bridge research project as part of the Bridge: A MindSport for All work?  

Whilst we recognise that the health consequences of Covid-19 are by far the most important and distressing, there are also significant economic and social impacts. Government guidance to stay at home and engage in social distancing means that our everyday lives have been massively disrupted.  

Covid-19 is impacting the bridge community in a range of ways, and these changes regarding bridge may be, to differing degrees, positive or negative. As sociological researchers, we would like to understand the diverse issues that the bridge community is currently facing and how it is responding (or not) to these. 

We would be delighted if you would share your experiences of bridge in the time of Covid-19.

If you are interested in participating in this project, please read the guidance notes which you can find in the main menu under "Bridge and COVID-19" and send your diary entries by email to: bamsa@stir.ac.uk (please note that only Miriam and I have access to the BAMSA email). Feel free to forward these details along with guidance notes on to others who might be willing to participate - anyone involved in bridge is welcome to share their views. In due course, the findings will be freely available and the final report will be sent to all participants (unless you ask us not to).

Many thanks
