Dorking Bridge Club Training Starts Thursday 4th September
Training To Help Social and Rubber Bridge Players To Transition To Club / Duplicate
These classes will be held in North Holmwood Village Hall, Spook Hill, North Holmwood just south of Dorking and will comprise two sessions, each of 4 evenings.
The first session, which will involve explanation of the specific differences between rubber and duplicate bridge together with general training involving practical examples of bidding and play technique, will be held on the following dates:
4th, 11th, 18th and 25th September.
The second session will involve playing in normal Club evenings on the following dates:
2nd, 16th, 23rd and 30th October.
Each evening will start at 7.30 p.m and finish at about 10.30 p.m. Tea and biscuits will be provided.
David Doyle the Dorking Bridge Club Chairman had this to say about the training "We have identified the need to help players in the Dorking area to transition from their social and rubber bridge to playing at one of the many local bridge clubs. So I am happy that four of our members including myself and a previous chairman Dickie Bird have put this short training together.
It will tackle some of the specifics of club duplicate bridge which include the rules and the way it is organised. It will also give insights into how to do well at duplicate.
There will be sessions on reviewing of the basic bridge conventions. The most important training aid will probably be the supervised play sessions which will be played at a rate similar to the club speed.
The final four weeks will be played in a safe club environment where we have asked members to refrain from complex systems. These hands that are played will also have a summary of the correct bidding, leads and play to provide essential feedback".
The cost of the two sessions (8 evenings in total) is £45 per person but if two persons enrol as playing partners at the same time each will receive a discount of £5.
At the end of the 8 week programme, anyone wishing to apply to join the Club, and whose application is accepted, will not be asked to pay a membership fee for the remainder of the 2014/15 club year.
