Convention Cards and Partnership Agreements

Whilst not making it compulsory, the Committee would like to encourage all partnerships to have an agreed convention card. You can use your own layout, fill in one of the blank formats to be found on the EBU website or use the simple form on the front page of the score card. The EBU website has some suggested convention cards for basic systems. Having a written partnership agreement obviously helps consistency in bidding and playing and also improving your bridge.

WSBC online

Although our Club premises remain closed, WSBC is offering online bridge through a partnership with Avenue and Lewes Clubs.  Three weekly sessions are available, on Tuesday mornings, Wednesday evenings and Thursday afternoons.  These sessions have proved very popular to many of our members, including some to whom online bridge has been a new experience.  If you have not yet tried playing in this medium, we would encourage you to give it a try.  The first step is to contact Hazel (secretary@westsussexbc.co.uk).

We will continue to be in weekly contact by email with all our members with club news and the intriguing and informative bridge teasers.

Stay well and keep in touch
