Wiltshire Friendly Sunday Pairs

Wiltshire Friendly Sunday Pairs

Sunday 19th September

The first face-to-face event of the new season of Wiltshire events took place at Devizes Bowls Club on Sunday 19th. Although the turnout was small and therefore was not a blue-pointed event, it was played in a friendly yet competitive atmosphere. The result was a tie for first place between Stuart Bridge and Roger Karn, and Richard and Sydney Gwyer - well done to both pairs. 

 

Update on events

Due to the low numbers recently participating in the online Tuesday Pairs, Wiltshire will no longer be running this session. The Saturday Pairs, starting at 1pm, will be contuining.

The new Western League season will be starting soon, and if you would like to opportunity to play for your county against our nearby neighbours, then please contact Stuart Bridge as soon as possible.

Clubs re-opening in Wiltshire

Many Wiltshire players are keen to come back to face-to-face bridge and clubs in Wiltshire are now considering re-opening, depending on venue and club members. Please check with your local club website for up to date information on proposed re-opening for face-to-face bridge. All clubs will follow government and EBU advice on safe re-opening. A full list of Wiltshire clubs, with a link to their website is available here.

Bath Bridge Club will be open from Tuesday 20th July and Corsham Bridge Club (new venue - Box Pavillion, and new evening, Tuesdays) will be open from Tuesday 27th July. Malmesbury Bridge Club will also open face-to-face at the new venue of Townsend Court (the same site as the previous venue) on Monday 26th July.

 

Robot scores in Wiltshire online games

After a number of comments from players about the scores achieved by robots playing in Wiltshire events, it has been decided to remove these scores before posting the results. If you had a bad score against a robot, this will be removed, regretably if you had good score this will also be removed. The director has made, and will continue to make, an annoucement at the start of the Wiltshire Tuesday and Saturday online games to this effect.

Have you considered becoming a bridge teacher in Wiltshire? EBED, the education arm of the EBU, are re-starting face-to-face training in September and there are courses on offer In Aylesbury, Yeovil and Solihull. Each EBU affiliated cub may apply for one free place every two years, and anyone applying via an affiliated EBU club (who will be paying the invoice), will be entitled to a 20% discount. This discount is funded by the EBU.

Wiltshire Clubs Online

The country is now in the third period of lockdown and although there is hope with the current vaccination programme, it seems unlikely that face-to-face bridge will resume until early summer 2021.

In the meantime, many of you are already playing online at your local club or at Wiltshire events, or taking part in the online Teams League. Clubs are offering support and help to any of their members who wish to play online, and many Wiltshire clubs are happy to include members from other clubs in their online sessions. For details, click here for the list of Wiltshire clubs and click on the web link for the club to see what they are offering.
