Newcastle Bridge Club holds nine sessions of duplicate bridge each week – both daytime and evenings – and all players are welcome. On Monday Afternoons, Tuesdays, Thursday Mornings and Fridays a standby player will be in attendance so anyone without a partner can simply walk in and get a game. The venue is close to Broadmeadow railway station and is also serviced by bus routes. There is disability access and off street parking is available. Tea, coffee and biscuits are included in the table fees which are $6 for members and $7 for non-members. The Club will help arrange a partner if required.

The next course of bridge lessons  for beginners will commence the week beginning 3rd July 2017.  Lessons will be held on Mondays 9.30 am to 11.30 am and on Tuesdays 7.00 pm to 9.00 pm.

Why Arrow Switch?

Members have asked why the Club uses an Arrow Switched movement to determine single winners of a pairs event.  The attached article, Determining a Single Winner Result for a Pairs Event explains that the arrow switched movement is considered the fairest means for determining single winners.  The result is not perfect but as near perfect as one can get when playing bridge.  Theoretical analyses behind the accuracy of the logic are complicated and not for the faint hearted.  If not convinced by the article, your next step is a “Google” search with my best wishes.
