Bridgemate Etiquette

Some points to note that make for more enjoyable bridge.

  • When the bidding has finished, do not touch the Bridgemates or enter contract details into personal records until the lead has been faced and dummy has gone down. This speeds up the game.

  • When details of the game have been entered by North/South, the Bridgemate should be placed in the centre of the table for all to see. East/West need to confirm details including the board number, contract and tricks made before pressing “Accept”.

  • The Bridgemate should be left on the table for people interested to check over board scores at other tables if available. This removes the need to make comments that may be seen as gloating or rubbishing the opponents.

  • Once noted, North/South to select OK .If this is done before the time period elapses, the unit will display “Repeat scores?”. Press OK to continue to review scores or Cancel to proceed to the next board.
