Players are requested to arrive 10 minutes before play is due to start please so the Director can finalise the movement and make a prompt start.
There will be bridge on all bank holiday Mondays except at Easter and Christmas.
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.
The Thursday evening session is primarily intended for less experienced players and only Level 2 systems may be used. Full details of which conventions are not accepted can be viewed in the menu item called “Thursday Evening Guidelines”.
Please come along if you would like to play as others without partners will also do so and you may well get a game. If you end up going home you will get a free play voucher!
Players without partners (whether or not they are a member) can now turn up at the following sessions and be guaranteed a game:
• All Monday evenings
• All Tuesday evenings
• All Thursday evenings except 3rd and 4th (but please see notice above)
Please check the website Calendar for irregularities. Everyone is welcome to make use of this facility but please arrive at the club by 7.15pm.
Thursday afternoons start at 1.30 pm. Table money is now £1.50 for members and £2.50 for visitors.
Please note that there is a new item under Teaching clarifying the relationship between the Club and the teaching operation.
The club has a 3 month rolling occupation agreement with Age UK for meetings in Lamb House and whilst the Committee will explore other opportunities as they arise, there are no current plans to move from this premises.
