Online Supervised Play

We are currently running online Supervised Play on Real Bridge on alternate Monday evenings at 7.30.  You will receive supervision on the evening over 12 boards (taken/adapted from a club duplicate session) with hand records afterwards including suggested bidding and play tips. The sessions are aimed at those who are doing, or have done, the Improvers course and who want to build their skills and confidence towards playing in club duplicate sessions.

 

These sessions are restarting on 8th January and the aim is to run them on alternate Mondays. The charge is £5 per session, billed at the end of term.

 

You need to let us know in advance if you are interested and then we will put you on our specific circulation list.  A memo is then sent round before each date asking who wants to play, with confirmation on the day before the session, so as to allow us to arrange full tables.  Please notify us of your interest marking it Online Supervised Bridge and emailing our club email for the attention of John at

Coffee Cup Recycling

In order to cut down on unnecessary coffee cup wastage, we request that members either

      a) Ideally, bring your own reusable coffee cup when you play

or  b) When using a paper cup, re-use it if you have a 2nd cup, and when you have finished with it, please rinse it, shake out any excess water/coffee, and then stack it with other cups near the sink.

One of our members will take the used cups for re-cycling at the end of the session.

Thanks in anticipation of your co-operation.
