mike head

Last Friday was the start of a series of FREE 30 minute lessons with Mike Prescott on Friday mornings at 9:30am at East Lindfiled (before the duplicate session at 10.00am). The first  lesson was very successful and we had a great turn out! The players also got to use their new   weapons in the duplicate.

Join Mike this coming Friday, where the lesson will be on "Doubles and Advances" - what to do after partner makes a take-out or negative double. This lesson is applicable to players of all levels so please join him on Friday 9.30am East Lindfield, followed by the "Fun and Friendly" session at 10:00am!

Great Initiatives Announced

Our Manager has come up with some new ideas to add to your enjoyment of playing at our club:

1.   Mike Prescott will conduct a series of FREE half-hour weekly lessons starting Friday 18th May 9:30am at East Lindfield - just before the duplicate session at 10:00am. Each week he will be covering different topics, and will be providing notes.

2.   Starting in May, we will be awarding monthly prizes for the best performing partnership in each category. The winning pair will be selected by adding their three best scores at any NSBC session for that month - excluding Tuesday and Thursday night Championship events.
