ETIQUETTE

Be respectful and polite to the director

Partner alerts or announces all conventional/artificial calls (BBO you self-alert)

Summarise your system or show your convention card at the start of the round.

Whenever possible make a claim 

Consider others by avoiding slow play 

Be polite to partner and opponents.

Do not comment on opponents' bidding or play.

Provide a complete answer to opponents questions.

RealBridge etiquette is the same as F2F bridge where partner alerts or announces conventional & artificial calls.

Health and Safety

Due to Coronavirus, the following will apply to all F2F events held in the Club for the foreseeable future:

Face Masks - we expect that all attendees will have been fully vaccinated and wearing face masks will be optional.

Hand Sanitisers - These will be available on each table and on entry to the Club.

Bridgemates - At the table, only the scorer will handle the Bridgemate handset – showing the score entered to the opponents.

Bidding Boxes - Members are advised to keep the same bidding box when moving from table to table

Bridge Movement - Whenever possible the bridge movement will minimise moving around the Club e.g., Mitchell movement.

Ventilation - Windows and doors will be kept open and so we advise members to sit away from potential draughty areas if they are sensitive to the cold.

Refreshments - Drinks will be available from the serving hatch but we will require members to avoid bunching together and so we will allow time to accommodate this.

Table Money - Payment is taken safely and hygienically using a credit or debit card online or at the Club

Members can bring their own drinks and bidding boxes.
