BRIDGE: News from Rugby Bridge Club

One of the things that is so great about Duplicate Bridge is that those considered to be the better players do not always feature in the winners lists.

New and scratch partners often do well. The scores this week were not particularly high with the best percentages going to the Thursday players.

Tuesday saw a close match with honours going to Mary Kerridge and Geoff Stafford 59.8% followed by Graham Clarke and Richard Holland, 59.2% and Cassie Malisova and Petr Malish 58%.

On Wednesday Keith Lodge and Brian Richardson led the field with 58%. Val Jones and David Edwards came second with Judith Kleiner and David Hicks third.

Thursday saw a close result with Roger Ward and Freddie Foster gaining 62% Liz Edwards and Stuart Warne 61% and Judith Kleiner and David Hicks 60%.

Judith continued to have a very successful week, by winning on Friday with Debbie Welch and scoring 60%. Pat and Tony Wren were second followed by Margaret and Dick Holdsworth. Full details of all our sessions and future events can be found on our website www,
