We are providing a two-month promotion, where two clubs in towns or cities that are twinned (“sister cities”) can play a joint event for free. For example, Koblenz in Germany is twinned with Norwich in the UK; Trondheim in Norway is twinned with Darmstadt in Germany.
We hope that this will provide an opportunity for your members to meet RealBridge users from other countries, and perhaps create lasting friendships.
This is how it works:
Pick a town or city in another country, that is officially twinned with your town or city. If you don’t know what your twin towns are, Wikipedia has a list:
- Contact a bridge club there that uses RealBridge (or even a club that doesn’t yet use RealBridge).
- If you have identified a town, but you don’t know which bridge clubs there are using RealBridge, ask us. We’ll be happy to put you in touch with someone. (The club list on our website does not show all the clubs that use RealBridge.)
- Arrange a joint event with the other club. The event should involve the members of the two clubs playing in the same event. It can be pairs or teams, or a session of each.
- Tell us the session link, so that we don’t charge you for it. It will be helpful if you also put “Twin City” in the session name (the yellow band at the top of the RealBridge window).
- Perhaps tell your local newspaper about it. When clubs in Cheltenham (UK) and Göttingen (Germany) did this recently, it was covered in the local press in both cities.
- Play, have fun, and tell us how it went.
If your town is lucky enough to be twinned with more than one other town, you are welcome to arrange events with more than of them.
Please participate in up to four sessions in total, before the 1 December 2021.
Good luck and have fun.
