Welcome to Berwick-upon-Tweed Bridge Club

Berwick-upon-Tweed Bridge Club is affiliated to the Scottish Bridge Union, and plays in the East District. It has two teams which play in the East District League.

Face-to-face bridge restarted at the Parish Centre on Thursday, 23 June. We will be running 20 board sessions every Thursday from 7pm until the end of August: these sessions will all be FREE and hosted, so you will be able to turn up without a partner.

Summer bridge risk assessment (May 2022)

Risk assessment from 1 September

We are continuing online bridge on Tuesday evenings at 7pm over the summer subject to a minimum of six pairs; online Thursday bridge has now ceased.

From Thursday, 1 September 2022, we will run BBO tournaments on Tuesday evenings and face-to-face tournaments at the Parish Centre on Thursday evenings. These will all count towards the club competitions: please look at the calendar to see when and where each will run.

We are an SBU Virtual Club, meaning we can charge an entry for our BBO tournaments and award SBU master points: our tournaments are run by SBU_E_BER. Any SBU member is welcome to participate as a guest, although if you wish to play regularly please ask to join the club.

Paul also runs a popular 12-board tournament on BBO on Saturday mornings at 11am. This is not associated with the club or SBU, but it is a restricted tournament so check that he has your BBO username if you want to play.

For those who are less experienced at cross imp pairs, there is a short explanation of what is a good score.

Handicaps

Many of the club competitions have been traditionally been handicapped. The results of the last three years of club competitions are used to compute the handicaps and the process is probably more scientific than the results.
