Welcome to Sutton Coldfield Bridge Club
COVID-19 Coronavirus - Club Closed until Further Notice

Sutton Coldfield Virtual Bridge Club

We have now set up our EBU Virtual Club on Bridge Base Online.

The first session is scheduled for Tuesday Night at 7.10pm on 2nd June  with the second session scheduled for 10.15am on Wednesday 3rd June.  

The intention is that these sessions will continue on a weekly basis.

We will increase the number of sessions dependent upon demand.

These sessions will be restricted to club members and friends of club members.

The results will be posted on our website with hand records and real names displayed in the same way as our normal club sessions and will also be uploaded to the EBU to qualify for NGS and Masterpoints.

Initially the club will cover the cost of entry after which members will need to pay table money by purchasing BBO dollars from the BBO website. 

Registering for our Online Club Sessions
  1. Please read the Guidelines before registering for a 'Virtual' Club sessions
  2. You can register with your partner up to 60 minutes before the session starts  -on the day of the session- .  Please register in good time and no later than 10 minutes before the start time.
  3. You can register without a partner by entering the Partnership Desk and adding your BBO name however if no-one else turns up you may not be able to play.
  4. Please ring Nigel & Sue if you having trouble registering.  Phone number is in the Membership Booklet.  
  5. Arrange a time with your partner and both log in to BBO.
  6. Under Featured Areas Select ‘Virtual Club’ then select ‘EBU - England’ this will bring up all the tournaments that are scheduled.
  7. To save scrolling until you find SCBC you can click on ‘Search’ (top right of the screen) and enter ‘SCBC’.  Our Tournament will then appear as pending.
  8. Click on it and a box appears.  Type in your partner’s BBO Username and invite.  Partner will receive and (hopefully) accept your invitation.  You are now both registered as a pair in our tournament.  You can imagine that you are now in the club sitting at a table ready to play.
  9. If you register early you can both now leave BBO and just login again at least 10 minutes before the start time.
  10. Just return to our tournament as above and you are ready to play.
  11. You now just wait until the tournament starts with the first board arriving.
  12. After each round two more opponents will automatically appear at your table and so you play on until the end.
  13. The results will be posted to our own bridge website just as if we had played in the club.
