Welcome to Kings and Queens Sydney Bridge Club

KINGS AND QUEENS SYDNEY BRIDGE CLUB IS REOPENING ON 1ST JULY 2020

It has certainly been a strange few months for all of us. Ahead of our reopening, we have made some changes with your safety in mind. The only (temporary) change to our timetable is that we will not be running Monday evening sessions until August. We will advise you the exact starting date by email.

The main changes that have been made are:

• The whole Club has been repainted including the toilets and offices

• The carpet has been cleaned and sanitised

• The louvre blinds will be replaced by the end of July – we tried to have this done earlier but were unable to do so

• We have sanitised the tablecloths, chairs and tables and will continue to do so at the end of each session

• We will be taking everyone’s temperature as they arrive at the Club

• There will be greater spacing between tables

• We now have EFTPOS machines for food and table money. You may choose to pay by credit/debit card or cash

We also ask that you do the following:

• Please use sanitisers between completion of a set. There will be stations with hand sanitisers throughout the Club for your use

• E/W only move when the movement is called by the director

• We are re-introducing bidding pads as these are easier to sanitise between sessions

• Please bring your own pens as we will not set-up pens on every table. If you forget to bring a pen, we will provide you with one which you will need to keep for the session and take home with you

• At the end of each session the card sets will be rested and used at most once per week so that any potential contamination will expire by the time the cards are used again

• We ask that only one person touches the Bridgemate at each table

• Only one person per table should remove the used pad after each board is played

• Purchase 5 or 10 game vouchers at a time using credit/debit cards. You may pay table money in cash, but ask that you bring exact change to minimise handling of cash

The Government has provided COVID-19 posters which are displayed around our club.

We ask that you don’t come to the Club if you have any symptoms that could be detrimental to our members.

We look forward to seeing you from next Wednesday, 1st July.

Best regards,

Aidan and Jacob
