Playing Grades

Playing Grades

Bridge at Victoria Bridge Club is played regularly on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings and on Thursday afternoons. Each of these sessions has its own standard of play.

Evening Play

Monday (Grade B) is for players with some experience who have passed the beginning stage and want to improve their game. Players on this night play to Intermediate Tournament rules.

Tuesday (Grade A) night is for more experienced players and entry to this level is by promotion from Monday play. Experienced players from other clubs will have direct entry considered depending on their ranking.

Wednesday (Grade C) is where basic bridge is played and learners can feel quite happy joining in.

Afternoon Play

Thursday afternoon is an open to all grades session and all players are welcome.

Thursday Evenings

These are open sessions and feature a mix of teams play, pairs competitions and coaching at ‘improvers’ level

The first Thursday of every month March to November features the Gladys Palmer Teams of Four, the Club’s major teams championship. Players from all levels are encouraged to play in this event, which is scored on both a championship and a handicap basis.

Coaching for improver’s level will be arranged during 2016 and details will be announced via the newsletters and the noticeboard. All club members are welcome to attend on either a regular or a casual basis. The content of each session will be advertised in advance.

The fourth Thursdays of the months May to October 2016 will feature an open Teams event:

  • Teams in the Wellesley Mixed Teams, will consist of two senior players and two more junior players. Players may enter as a pair or individually but not as a team. To obtain a reasonable even distribution of ability the composition of each team will be determined by the event co-ordinator in consultation with the players
