PERSHORE Duplicate Bridge Club (PDBC) continues to thrive after holding tournaments online and could reopen its doors in the Spring – having closed for Face-to-Face games in wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Covid restrictions forced the club to close for Face-to-Face (F2F) bridge competitions and the club have since introduced more than 70 members to online bridge.
And this has allowed Pershore Bridge Club to hold a variety of competitions on the web with Alan Boyes and Ross Garratt claiming the Championship Pairs Cup ahead of Steve Betteley and Sally Martin.
Members also competed for the Michael Farey Handicap Trophy which was won by Yvonne McKeon and Gill Mitchell with Marianne Thomas and Ruth Simpson placing second.
The RealBridge (TM) platform has proven popular amongst players – providing members with an experience not dissimilar to F2F bridge thanks to online communication features.
However, despite the club enjoying its foray into the online world – the chairman is hopeful PDBC could reopen its doors in the Spring as discussed at their AGM which took place via Zoom.
The re-opening would be for the club’s traditional Wednesday evening F2F bridge meetings whilst annual club membership fees could also be reduced to just £5.
PDBC recently held a presentation day at Croome Court Cafe where members received their respective trophies.
