Tom March Trophy
Held on Tuesday 4th June, the Cup was won by Patrick Cartlidge & Timothy Anderson. Well done, chaps!
At the last Committee meeting it was agreed to publish a "Thought for the Month" each month on our website. Here is the first:
Don’t be a time thief!
As declarer, we all want the same thing...
not to have to rush the hand.
If you are on lead, please give declarer that courtesy by making your lead as quickly as possible, before entering the contract in the Bridgemate, writing on your scorecard, etc.
Dummy should go down as soon as the lead is faced.
Be courteous, don’t be a time thief.
Winchester Bridge Club welcomes all bridge players, from complete beginner to expert to play duplicate bridge in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We are part of the Winchester Racquets & Fitness Club, Bereweeke Road, Winchester. Membership of the bridge section of the club (currently £137.00 per annum) includes full use of the club facilities, including the bar and cafe, serving drinks, meals and snacks, tea and coffee. No table money is payable. Members interested in a sports or fitness membership package may join and also add bridge membership for just £15 extra.
We play duplicate pairs on Tuesday and most Thursday evenings starting at 7.00pm. Please arrive by 6.45 pm to ensure a prompt start. One Thursday each month is set aside for a teams of four evening. Scoring is electronic, using Bridgemates.
Visitors and prospective new members are always welcome. There is a guest fee of £3.50 for the evening. We normally have a host available on duplicate evenings so visitors do not need a partner, but you are asked to arrive early and introduce yourself to the Director, so that any formalities can be dealt with before start of play.
All sessions are scored electronically by Bridgemate and printed hand records are available.
Beginners and Improvers courses are offered by one of our members, Margaret Blewett (please contact Margaret firstname.lastname@example.org directly for more information). We also offer Supervised Play sessions on Monday evenings, with occasional Gentle Duplicate sessions as part of the programme, to introduce players with less club experience to duplicate play, before taking out full membership, at a special introductory rate. We also run occasional seminars on Wednesday evenings.
