Bridge Restarting

NZ bridge has advised that Bridge clubs can reopen for play at Lockdown Level 2 if they choose with certain safety standards. Several clubs in our region and many in other parts of the country have re-opened or are preparing to reopen next week

Your committee has discussed the way forward for our club with the decision being made to reopen the club starting this coming Monday of next week - 14 September, with sessions on Monday evening, Tuesday afternoon, Tuesday evening, Thursday evening and Friday morning

Obviously, it is an individual decision whether you wish to play in Level 2 and the committee understands that

At the current Level 2 our safety precautions are the following:
•    If you come to bridge you must be well and have no symptoms of any illness
•   The use of face masks is mandatory. The club has a limited number of disposal ones available
•   The kitchen will be closed
•   You bring your own pen that travels with you
•   Only South will handle the Bridge Mate. East will verbally agree to the score

If we find that insufficient numbers decide to play at the current Level 2, we will close again until Lockdown Level 1

There will be further communication from us on the club website after the next Government announcements
