After exactly 18 months Tudor Bridge Club gets to play face-2-face again.  A select band of 16 players turned up for the inaugral competition - the Dave Watson Cup.  It was lovely to see so many again, and with several saying they will join us next week, we are hoping to have established a thriving Wednesday afternoon session for many weeks, months and years to come.

Congratulations to Jane and Nigel (East/West) and Karen and Christine (North/South) as this years winners.  

Wednesday Afternoon Play, Face to Face

Sadly Covid 19 is still very much with us, and is likely to remain so for a good while yet, and therefore it is necessary for us to actively consider ways to reduce the risks of transmission and illness, that might affect our members. Although legal restrictions on social distancing and mask wearing have been removed this does not obviate the need for caution to mitigate risks, as far as it is possible to do.

The committee have therefore completed a full Risk Assessment (based on criteria used by other re-opening Bridge Clubs).

In essence the measures taken will be as follows:-

  1. A maximum of 5 Tables will be used on a Wednesday so that sufficient space between tables can be maintained.
  2. Initially, at least, each table will have its own set of boards, so that no player will handle cards handled by another.
  3. Entering and leaving the premises will be regulated to ensure no crowding, as will the movement of pairs between rounds.
  4. Hand sanitiser/gel will be available on each table along with latex gloves and masks should people choose to use them (it is not compulsory).
  5. Bridge Tabs will be handled only by North. The scoring computer only by the director.
  6. The kitchen will not be in use and players should bring their own refreshments if required.
  7. Players will be requested to ensure handwashing and/or hand sanitisers are used when in the WC and touch points (Taps, Flushes etc) should be cleaned with hand wipes provided.
  8. We would hope to be able to open windows and doors if possible as good ventilation is important in reducing transmission. We will try to do so if at all possible. Members might want to ensure they have sufficient warm clothing on colder days.
  9. On vaccinations, it was decided that only those members who have been double vaccinated should play at the club as the risk of serious illness is significantly reduced after 2 vaccinations. A form has now been added to the website (see below) in order for members to simply confirm that they have received both vaccinations.  

The purpose of all this is to reduce as far as possible, any risk of harm to our members who want to play Face to Face without taking away from the enjoyment of playing bridge socially. It is also important that we build confidence in our membership so that they feel able to play face to face again and we hope that the measures taken will go some way towards that.
