We will be running Bridge Lessons at the club on Tuesday mornings between 10.15 and 12.15 beginning on 3rd October 2023 for both beginners and intermediate players.
The fee will be £3 a session including tea and coffee.
For intermediate players there will be the option to play in our Tuesday afternoon game which is designed specifically for people learning the game. This runs from 1.00 and 3.30.

Tuesday evenings on BBO - Newton Abbot / Plymouth
We are teaming up with Newton Abbot on a Tuesday evening on BBO so that we alternately run the Tuesday evening session at 7pm. The first Newton Abbot session will be on 2nd August and the first Plymouth session will be on 9th August and then we will each run fortnightly.
This will mean that we play a 7-9 table session instead of our current 3-5 tables each. In the search box you can type in new to find the Newton Abbot session and ply to find the Plymouth session.
The respective directors will decide on the number of boards and the minutes per board.
Don has created a combined file of all the user names for Newton Abbot and Plymouth so that we can upload easily to the club websites and the EBU.
For those players who don't like playing with a small number of tables this is an opportunity to play at a good standard with a decent number of tables. Please join in so that we get a good regular number of tables.
RealBridge for ipad users
RealBridge have asked us to send you some more advice about iPads that have been upgraded to iOS 15.
There is a problem where some iPads freeze when they arrive at a table. To solve this problem, RealBridge have updated their advice for iPads with iOS 15, and there are some more settings changes to make.
If you have an iPad, and you have iOS 15, please follow the instructions here:
Even if you did this during the past two weeks, please do it again, as the advice has changed.
If you have been in contact with RealBridge since Wednesday 8 December, they may already have asked you to make these changes. If so, you don’t need to do anything. If you are not sure whether you have the latest settings, either go and check whether your iPad has the recommended changes, or contact RealBridge to check.
RealBridge are very happy to help people with this. If you need help, please contact them at:
Alerted calls with yellow border (optional) By default, a call that has been alerted is shown with a red tint. A player can choose to have a yellow border around the alerted call, as well as the red tint.
Players can find the option in the Settings screen (the cog wheel). This setting is remembered for future sessions in the same browser.

As a club we have been successfully playing on-line during the pandemic. We have used Bridge Base Online and have experimented with Real Bridge and Bridge Club Live. Real Bridge looks as if it may be the future being a British System that includes sound and vision on the bridge platform making it more like playing bridge in the club room.
