Covid Related Guidelines for Face to Face Sessions

The club has carried out a risk assessment for re-opening which has resulted in the guidelines listed here. However, there is no such thing as ‘zero risk’ with Covid, so only attend the F2F sessions if you are comfortable with these.

Following the success of the Summer Supervised Play sessions, we are continuing these sessions every Tuesday from 1:30 to 3:30 at Roke. These sessions are not just for our students, but for anyone in the club who would like some more practice and guidance on improving their bridge.

Supervised Play is also available online on Thursday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00, these sessions are now on RealBridge and not Zoom and BBO as they were previously.

Very soon, face-to-face Supervised Play will also be available on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 at Roke - start date to be announced.

Cost for all of our Supervised Play sessions is £5 per person (paid by the same method for table money, see below).

Premium Vector | The letter b the font is made in the form of a christmas  treeSection B will be holding their Christmas Party on Wednesday 14th December. The evening will start at 6.30 pm with drinks and nibbles and a “slightly different” evening of bridge will commence at 7o’clock. There will be a short break in the middle for more drinks and nibbles – all provided by the Club – so the evening will finish slightly later than usual depending on the amount of chatter!!
