Warwickshire Online Club (WOC) - It's Here!
Warwickshire Online Club (WOC) - It's Here!

While there are still some finer details to iron out, Warwickshire is pleased to announce the launch of Warwickshire Online Club (WOC) using Bridgebase Online (BBO). 
Sessions will commence in September, with the County Pairs on Tuesday 1st.

WOC will operate independently of Warwickshire’s normal face-to-face programme, with its own set of (simpler) guidelines/rules, which you will agree to when you register and each time you play, with a focus on fair and enjoyable bridge.  Pre-registration is required (below), of your Name, EBU Number, Email Address and BBO ID (please check carefully for spaces, etc).  Membership of WOC is free and open to anyone (EBU member or not).   Each time you play you will pay table money at the point of entry (details on the EBU website – please note that entry fees will be 5BBO$).

Warwickshire’s online programme will include:

Online League – Free!  Similar to face to face league, but on BBO – Matches arranged at the teams’ convenience, with further details here.

Sessions will be as follows (Please read ‘Key Points’ Footnotes):

  • 1st Tuesday of the month - County Pairs - First Session - Tuesday 1 September @ 7.15pm
    A drop-in, match-pointed pairs, session run over 5 months (series) with the best 4 scores counting for the overall winner.  You can change partnerships if you wish, but qualifying scores will only be from those of the same pairing.  No pre-entry necessary, just register on the night.  NB You can play in these events without any committment to the 5 months' series.
  • 2nd Tuesday of the month – Gentle Pairs - First Session - Tuesday 8 September @ 7.15pm
    Open to those who have been playing for no more than 4 years - A drop-in, match-pointed pairs, session run over 5 months (series) with the best 4 scores counting for the overall winner.  You can change partnerships if you wish, but qualifying scores will only be from those of the same pairing.  No pre-entry necessary, just register on the night.  NB You can play in these events without any committment to the 5 months' series.
  • 3rd Tuesday on the month - WPLOnline (Pairs) - First Session - Tuesday 15 September @ TBC (depending on division)

  • 4th Tuesday - Teams Night - Available From - Tuesday 22 September @ 7.15pm
    No fixed events, but any teams wishing to play whilst having a TD available online to assist with setting up the match, etc.  Anyone wishing to enter a team, please contact the League Secretary.

David Jones Retires
David Jones Retires

After 12 years serving as Chairman of Coventry Bridge Club, now Coventry and North Warwickshire Bridge Club, David hangs up his administrative hat.  David also recently retired from the County Executive Committee, and from his role as an EBU National Tournament Director, running many national events and oversees congresses.

One role David cannot retire from, however, is as head of the three-generation Jones bridge clan, which he can now spend more time with, along with pursuing his passion for golf and, of course, politics free bridge!

We thank you, David, for your many years of dedicated and loyal service, not only to Coventry Bridge Club, but to the County and Country you have served so wonderfully well, with true passion and good humour, for many years.

We wish you a long and happy retirement with many hours of great golf and bridge.

Warwickshire Online League 2020/21
Warwickshire Online League 2020/21

An opportunity for existing and new teams of 4-6 players to compete in the Warwickshire Online League.

Matches will be played online using BBO and under the WCBA Online Guidelines which will be available on the website in due course.  The focus will be on fun and fair bridge, with little regulation and complexity.  
 
Online League Rules will apply (see in Warwickshire Online Club) and will allow for 1) 16 board matches played in one sitting (ie no change of opponents), or 2) 24 board matches in two halves with a change of opponents at half-time.  Where captains agree to this there may be a change of player(s).
 
The structure in terms of number of divisions and teams per division will depend on the number of entries, but regard will be given to the finishing positions of teams playing in the current season. New teams will be very welcome, with assignments at the discretion of the organiser (whose decision shall be final)
 
Not played online?  It has been proven over the past few months that anyone can play bridge online and have a really good time!  There are a number of Clubs, the EBU, and other local groups running sessions on BBO which provides an ideal opportunity to have a go.  If your Club is not offering any online action, then the local West Midlands Bridge Circle is an independent group offering low cost bridge with support for players in getting started online.
 
Entries will close on 30 August 2020.
 
If you would like to enter a team, or if you have any questions, please contact Derek Oddy, League Secretary.
