  Monday and Tuesday Afternoon Online Bridge Sessions
We have merged our afternoon session (and adding a Tuesday session), working together with the Adam Wiseberg Bridge Club
These sessions will start at 2 pm and players are most welcome to join. 
Follow this link below and it will take you to Adam's site - all our members who have been playing there on Monday
afternoons have said how enjoyable it has been. 
The Ten High Session will be reintroduced in a few weeks on a different day. Details when finalised. 
There are instructions on Adam's site on how to pay for these sessions. 
If you have any difficulties, speak to Adam at the start of the session and he'll help you.
 
  IMPORTANT - COVID-19 RULES FOR CLUB SESSIONS

The Club has now reopened for its regular sessions - please come and support us.

In line with the latest advice from the Government and NHS, you may choose to wear a mask when playing at the Club. 

We would encourage you not to attend if you are feeling under the weather unless you have taken a test and are clear. 

So far, none of our members has tested positive, as far as we know, and we hope to keep it that way.

IMPORTANT! Playing Real Bridge on iPads

I M P O R T A N T  

RealBridge has 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 has updated the 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

You must update your iPad software if you haven't do so recently.

If you have been in contact with RealBridge since 1st March, 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.

Improving Your Bridge!

Many of the country's top bridge teachers are offering free online live and video tutorials for free.  Local teacher Adam Wiseberg has his own You Tube channel (see above) and there are number of others to help you improve and develop your game:

John is one of Lancashire's top bridge players and on Tuesday evenings he offers a live commentary using Zoom and BBO where four players from his club (Bury Athenaeum) play some hands and he provides a commentary on the bidding and play.  Aimed at improvers and beginners, it starts around 7pm and 10 hands are played.  You can see one of the sessions here.  There are some other instructional videos here.
