We are a new bridge club based on the Island of Waiheke in Auckland's Hauraki Gulf. We are administered under a Charitable Trust to provide regular weekly events at our club rooms on Moa Avenue and on-line via our social WhatsApp groups.
The club provides all the facilities one would expect for a modern contract bridge experience - including the use of BridgeTabs, automated scoring and results, and a new player platform that allows members to analyse and improve their bridge skills.
We are also strongly community focused and aim to promote a cordial and supportive environment both at the club and on-line where players can meet and build new friendships.
All members of 2020bridge Club enjoy free hosted on-line Teams events each Friday and Wednesday.
We run an afternoon improvers group hosted by Holger on Friday which starts at 1pm.
An all-comers organised Teams event is run lon Wednesday at 7pm hosted by Jo or Martyn.
We welcome players from outside Waiheke and NZ to join us. All you need is a playing partner. You submit your booking via WhatsApp and wait for the draw to take place. Your booking will be confirmed via WhatsApp once the random draw has taken place. It's great fun.
You can join either or both of these events by sending us your details using the form opposite - please ensure your have a WhatsApp account and include your mobile phone number. We will get you connected and joined up with the fun in no time.
On-Line Fallback for Lock-down Mondays
We have set up a system that will allow members to play bridge during our normal Monday bridge day even if for some reason our status is Red or Orange. We will use the on-line BBO platform. This way, there will always be a game at 2020bridge on Mondays at 10am. We call this On-line Fallback. We will only run it if we can't open the club for normal play and it will only occur on a Monday. Our Tuesday online sessions are therefore suspended. If you have WhatsApp you will shortly see a new Group with an icon like this:
We will communicate with you on this WhatsApp group if and when we need to run On-line Fallback - If our Monday status is Red or Orange then check-in at the icon above. If you do not have WhatsApp, then you can drop us an email or use the message box opposite and we will try to make sure you are not left out and are able to join the fun.
We have become part of the Pianola family. For those who have never heard of this platform then it may be a revelation. You access Pianola via our website by clicking on the yellow 2020 login button on the home page. You need to have set up an id and a password to gain access. If you don't have an id then please contact us via the message screen below. Click the User Guide below for more information.
