Table Name Slips
Table Name Slips are used in games of Duplicate Bridge, to assist the scoring process. Our pad of Table Name Slips contains 100 sheets of 80gsm crisp white paper. The black printing is to one side only, so there’s no show-through. For your convenience and to make storage simple, the sheets have been made into a pad. Furthermore, there is a grey backboard at the back of the pad. This has the benefit of protecting the sheets, right down to the last one. Nobody likes tatty, dog-eared stationery after all! Additionally it provides a firm writing surface for the players in clubs that like to put a pad on each table. This has the added bonus of protecting the table and cloth from accidental pen marks.
Simple To Use
It only takes a minute or two to fill in the Table Name Slips. This is usually done at the beginning of the session and then they’re collected in. Firstly record the section number and table number. Next fill in your pair numbers and names. The lines for you names are a generous 7cm, so there’s also room for extra information such as your EBU number if necessary. Finally, there’s a blank box at the end of each name to use as per your club protocol.
Each slip measures approximately 14cm x 7.5cm.
Although the more skilful players will have an advantage in games of Rubber Bridge, the side dealt the best hands will invariably have the best chance of winning overall. It is to eliminate this element of luck that Duplicate Bridge was devised. Hands are pre-dealt into boards or wallets, then each pair plays every board. At the end of the session the scores are collected, compared and players can be accurately ranked.
