THE Bridge section of the British Games Club held a very successful Christmas tournament and lunch. Indeed, so successful and popular was that it was spread over two days, namely December 21 and 22.
Tournament winners were George and Jurgen, with players and friends enjoying the Christmas lunch at the Petit Los Angeles restaurant in Puerto de la Cruz the following day.
The section’s playing sessions now enjoy the benefits of electronic scoring, thanks to some recently-purchased high-tech equipment which places them at the forefront of bridge-playing sophistication on Tenerife.
Bridgemate II is the world’s most popular wireless scoring system for bridge clubs and tournaments. It is unrivalled for user-friendliness, functionality and reliability and lifts the club to a much higher level.
In addition to being a scoring system, it also guides players through the game, providing instant feedback on results, live rankings, game summaries and records of individual hands, to name but a few of its many features.
Members say that the introduction of the Bridgemate systems is one of the best things ever to have happened to the club.
The new system is pictured in action above right.
The club also now has its own websites, Tenerife North Bridge Club where tournament scores are recorded, together with membership details.
