Organisers John Ditchfield – 01254 248178 and Joan Smith – 01254 247589The Club runs a popular Bridge League nearly every Tuesday during the winter. At present over 30 members take part in very friendly, but competitive Bridge Each individual is awarded a handicap at the start of the season based on past performance and or level of playing ability and this is reviewed once during the season. We play Duplicate Bridge starting at 6.45 p.m. and usually are able to play 22 Boards before finishing at about 10.00 p.m. Gross and Net scores are recorded for each week and prizes are awarded at the end of the season for the pairs with the highest points scored in both categories. Only the best 12 scores of each pair through the season count for the league. As there are over 20 opportunities to play during the season, it is not essential to play every week to compete in the league. New players, individuals or pairs, are always very welcome and Social Membership of the Club is available at modest cost. Anyone interested should contact the organisers for more details.
Finally here we are with the first results of the new season, my apologies for the delay in publishing them, due to various reason, me playing golf, me forgetting how to get the results onto my computer and somebody (unknown) removing the Bridge feature from the club’s website. Anyway all now back online, hopefully I will find out who removed the site and ensure that they do not do it again, the scores have been calculated and as they say on TV – the results are in , better late than never!!! I do hope everyone enjoyed the first week, welcome to new player – Vicky Nuttall we hope she enjoys playing with us, for those players who were not present last Thursday, we did have a discussion about the starting time and it was pretty well unanimous that we continue to start at 6.45 p.m. hopefully, sat down and ready to start at that time !!
