IMPROVERS' TROPHY 2020

The Improvers' Trophy competition for 2020 has understandably been cancelled, but the 2021 competition will be started as soon as we are back playing in person.

FLETCHER TROPHY

The 2020 Fletcher Trophy, the premier Club competition in Essex, was inevitably cancelled, but it is to be hoped that it might be possible to to play the 2021 competition, due in October

ESSEX MIXED TEAMS AND OTHER ESSEX COMPETITIONS

The Essex Mixed Teams competition was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 so the 2019 winners - Cathy Macnaughton, Maureen Walker, Ian Yeats and Paul Hickson - are still the reigning Champions!

The up to date position on all Essex competitions can be found on the ECBA website and we also have a link to the calendar for London Competitions on the London Metropolitan Bridge Association website - see the "Useful Links" tab above for both

"EBU BEST BEHAVIOUR AT BRIDGE"
Most of these Guidelines of course apply to Online Bridge as much as to Face to Face Bridge..........:
 
  • DO greet others in a friendly way before starting play
  • DO be a good 'host' or 'guest' at the table
  • DO try to make bridge enjoyable for yourself, your partner and your opponents
  • DO give credit when partner or opponents make a good bid or play
  • DO take care of your personal grooming
  • DO ensure that your mobile phone is turned off
  • DO enjoy the company as well as the game
  • DO be polite at the table and don't gloat over good results
  • DON'T criticise your partner or opponents at the table
Setting Up

When we are back playing at the Walthamstow Hub, if anyone is able to get to there a bit early on Mondays and Thursdays to help with setting up tables and getting everything ready for a prompt start it would be much appreciated. Many thanks.

Monday Host

When we play at the Walthamstow Hub, a host is available every Monday so that you can come and play without a partner. The current hosting list is:

1st Monday of the month - Peter Rogers
2nd Monday - Keith Mattacks
3rd Monday - Peter Richardson
4th Monday - John Francis
5th Monday - Winnie Godber
 
If you need a partner on a Thursday, Cathy Macnaughton can be contacted on the number at the top of this page, and she will do her best to see what can be arranged
