FRIDAY MORNING START TIME 10:30am
FRIDAY MORNING START TIME 10:30am

The Friday morning session will be moving to a 10:30am start time effective from this Friday, 8th July.  Hopefully that will be a more convenient time for more people.

This Friday Ellen will be serving delicious Bacon Butties from 10:00am to 10:30am - free!

Your director is Harriet and Ann Lindsay is host so come on down for a very friendly but still competitive game.

The scores from Friday mornings are included in the Summer Morning Ladder, currently led by Cliff, with Allan and Calum closely behind. The ladder runs all through the Summer and so plenty of time to make your mark.  Have a look to see how you are doing by selecting "Competitions" from the left hand menu or by clicking HERE

Supervised sessions are:

ised Play for all levels of beginners, including set hands for those who are just starting to learn the bidding, and Supervised Duplicate for those who are ready for the next step.

Going to be LATE?
Going to be LATE?

If you are going to arrive later than 10 mins before the start of the session, it is essential that you call the club on 0208 947 0147  at least 15 minutes beforehand so that you can be included in the movement. If you don't do this you may not be able to play - Thank you -

HOSTING & ARRIVING WITHOUT A PARTNER
HOSTING & ARRIVING WITHOUT A PARTNER

If you do not have a partner for an occasional session, a host is normally available.  If you do come on your own, please arrive at the Club at least 15 minutes before the start of play so that you can be partnered in good time with another single player or the host without causing delay to the start of play. 

Members with a NGS of 5+ are asked to volunteer to host a minimum of once a year.  A number of members are contributing to the club by hosting more frequently than this and we thank them.  Please be kind and courteous to your partner and remember that it is important to find yourself a regular partner and not rely on the host system entirely.

UNDO POLICY ON BBO
UNDO POLICY ON BBO

For Supervised Games "Undos" are allowed at any time during bidding or play

For other games or tournaments "Undo" is not allowed during the play of the hand.
"Undo" is allowed for misclicks during bidding providing your partner has not bid i.e. only your Left Hand Opponent. This follows the EBU Rule 25 for F2F play. If there is doubt as to whether an Undo should be accepted, the TD should be called. You might like to consider turning on "Confirm Bids" and "Confirm Cards". This is found on BBO under your Account and then Settings.
