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.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, there will be no further meetings of the club until the beginning of next season in September at the earliest.

During the summer, the club is meeting twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday evenings on Bridge Base Online. Sixteen board tournaments starting at 7pm.

The club will continue to play on Bridge Base Online for the rest of 2021, on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7pm. The Committee will review in November whether we return to the Parish Centre in January 2022.

Visitors

Visitors are very welcome - if you need a partner, or teammates on team nights, contact Christine McCreath on 01289 386302 or by email.

BBO for club members

Over the summer 16-board tournaments are being run, on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7pm, and we encourage you to participate with the same variety of partners that you would do at the Parish Hall - Christine, our partnership secretary, is always ready to help.

All the events require table money, normally BB$2. In 2020, over 60% of the table money was returned to the club. SBU master points are awarded for all pay tournaments. It is a condition of the SBU’s agreement with Bridge Base Online that all players in Berwick Virtual Club tournaments are SBU members.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask any member of the committee.

Paul is continuing to run his popular, friendly 12-board tournament on Saturday mornings at 11am. Everyone welcome.

Help, advice and useful, short(!) videos on using BBO are available at https://berwickbridgeclub.co.uk/bbo.

 

Winning tactics

Paul describes the scoring used in all the club and league competitions - pairs, teams, match points, cross imps, aggregate scoring - and how you should change your tactics depending on the format in this news item.

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